DIY Peppermint Foot Soak

Milky Peppermint Foot Soak

This foot soak uses Peppermint Essential Oil which offers many aromatherapy benefits, including boosting energy and soothing tired muscles. It also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. This is inexpensive to make and contains only 4 ingredients.

Epsom salts is made up of magnesium and sulphate that can help reduce pain and inflammation. For an added touch of luxury, consider adding some dried lavender or rose petals to your foot soak recipe. Not only will it enhance the visual appeal, but it will also provide a calming and relaxing effect.


  • 1 cup powdered milk (My personal favourite is coconut milk powder)
  • 1 cup Epsom salt
  • 2 peppermint infused tea bags
  • 10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Large Glass, airtight jar for storage

Method: Add the powdered milk and Epsom salts to a bowl. Stir with a metal spoon. Cut open the 2 tea bags and add the contents and mix well. Finally, mix through the peppermint essential oil. Transfer to a glass, airtight container. 

Directions for use: Place ½ cup of the peppermint foot soak to a basin of hot water and stir. Insert feet and soak for about 20 minutes. After, rinse and dry your feet and then follow up with a natural moisturiser.

Please Note: If you are pregnant or have any health concerns, check with your doctor before using Epsom salts and/or essential oils.
