DIY Peppermint and Tea Tree Foot Lotion
As I mentioned in my last post, I received a 1 lb bag of Shea Butter from Shea Butter Wisdom and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it at first.
Shea Butter is found in many beauty products you buy online and from stores. You can use Unrefined Shea Butter to make your own lotion bars, body scrubs, hair cream, soap and more.
My daughter and I decided we would try to make Peppermint Foot Lotion with just a few ingredients we had around the house. Here’s how we made it.
- Unrefined Raw Shea Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Therapeutic Grade Tea Tree Oil
- Therapeutic Grade Peppermint
Also Needed: A measuring Cup, Glass Containers (we used 4oz baby food jars) a stand or hand mixer, and then we also decorated them with tissue paper we had around the house. (next time I would like to use fabric, but we made do with what we had) We also used some Ribbon to tie around the bottles and made our own labels.
Melt 1 Cup Shea Butter and 1 Cup Coconut Oil on a double boiler using gentle heat (just enough to melt it)
Let cool slightly and add 5 drops of Peppermint oil and 5 drops of Tea Tree Oil
Mix for approximately 5 minutes
Pour into containers (This actually made 3 4oz containers with a little bit left over)
That’s all there was to it! I was actually surprised how easy this was to make. Now we have an awesome Peppermint and Tea Tree foot lotion. My daughter also had lots of fun helping me make this!
I can’t wait to try making other Diy Beauty Products. Have you guys ever made your own beauty products using Shea Butter or any other ingredients before? I would love some more ideas on what to make next time!
