Mint Lime Foot Soak +Free Printable {Gift Idea}

Pin It Now!
A few years ago I shared a very simple gift idea for a peppermint foot soak at Christmas time which was very popular, so I made a new version just in time for Spring & Summer. This one is Mint Lime Foot Soak, which has a wonderful mint and fresh citrus scent that is perfect for tired tootsie and 'flip flop feet'  in warmer weather. This would made such a perfect gift for Mother's Day or a teacher's appreciation gift.

This is very easy for anyone to make and can  be made in bulk to create many little jars for gift-giving. Here is what you will need:

Mint Lime Foot Soak
{makes 4~1/2 cup jars}

2 cups Epsom salts
1 lime
peppermint essential oil
lime essential oil
green food colouring {optional}
4~1/2 clean glass jars with lips
ribbon & paper embellishments for jars

1.In medium bowl, add Epsom salts, zest from 1 lime, 2-3 drops of peppermint essential oil, 2-3 drops of lime essential oil, and 1-2 drops green food colouring.
2. Mix salt mixture until everything is mixed well, and mixture is light green in colour and lime zest is mixed throughout.
3. Decant into jars. Decorate as desired.
4. To use, sprinkle mint lime foot soak into a foot spa appliance, or a clean dish pan used just for feet, filled with warm water. Let feet soak while watching favourite TV show or reading  juicy book.
 As I mentioned above, you can increase the quantity of the Epsom salts to make more jars for gift-giving. And don't forget to add pretty ribbons and other things to make the jars look super adorable.
And because I love you all so much, I made a label that you can print on Avery oval labels #16463 and use for your jars too! You can find the link by clicking here: Mint Lime Foot Soak

This is such a great idea - I must try it, and I even have mason jars ready to use! Funny question, but do you think this will last a while or should you use it fairly fast (because of lime zest)?
