We made this particular batch as teacher appreciation gifts. I’m sure everyone has different thoughts on these gifts, but mine are as follows; I don’t want to spend a load of money. It’s the kids who should be putting the majority of the effort into making them. And of course, I want them to look gorgeous, and for the teachers to feel fabulously appreciated! Our peppermint foot scrub meets all these requirements, and the basic recipe can be used to make any scrub you can think of.
This recipe is endlessly adaptable. You can use Epsom salts, sea salt, sugar or a mix. You can use any number of oils and fragrances, and you can add in dried herbs or fresh. I imagine our teacher’s feet to be both hot and tired at this time of year, so have chosen something that I hope to be relaxing, refreshing and restorative!
