An amazing blend of coconut oil, shea butter and peppermint essential oil to revitalize tired feet. Shea Butter is available at most natural foods stores.
- In a double boiler over low heat, gently warm the coconut oil and shea butter. Be careful not to melt the oil and butter – heat just enough to blend easily. Once incorporated, transfer the oil and butter mixture to a bowl.
- Using an electric mixer, blend the coconut oil and butter on low to medium speed until well incorporated, 1-2 minutes. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and avoid having any clumps in the final product.
- Increase the speed to medium for several minutes until the mixture is thick and buttery. Continue to incorporate the ingredients by scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
- Add the essential oil and blend to incorporate. The whole mixing process should take 5 to 6 minutes.
Yields 4oz. Transfer to a container like a wide-mouth canning jar for easy scooping. The peppermint oil gives a wonderful, tingling sensation for tired feet. You can also substitute lavender essential oil for a calming effect.
