DIY recipe: cooling peppermint foot spray

Robyn Stevens

 Hot, tired, stinky feet? I've got the solution!

I am an avid hiker and nothing feels better after a long day on the trail than taking off my boots, airing out my feet, and putting them up. (I’m not going to lie, there may also me some serious snacks involved as I rest my aching feet.) A few years ago, I realized that misting my feet with a foot spray was even more healing and revitalizing for hot feet. Problem is that the spray I purchased was expensive, full of chemicals and — as it was an aerosol — bad for the environment. So, I put on my DIY cap and devised this recipe for foot spray which has become my go-to after exercising, spending the day on my feet, or even dancing all night at a friend’s wedding reception.

RECIPE:
Cooling Peppermint Foot Spray
1/4 cup Green Leaf Naturals Aloe Vera Gel
1/4 cup witch hazel
2-3 drops of peppermint essential oil
Optional: add tea tree oil for added anti-bacterial qualities or eucalyptus oil for additional anti-inflammatory properties.
Mix all ingredients well and add to a spray bottle.
Mist those feet after a long run, a day in tight shoes, or just to refresh those tootsies on a hot day.

 

This spray is super refreshing. It's cooling and helps with inflammation... not to mention, it smells great.
