Our peppermint foot balm smells amazing as it is blended with organic organic shea butter & olive oil which has been infused with organic herbal peppermint as well as beeswax, natural menthol and peppermint essential oil.
The end result is a foot balm which creates a genuinely cooling, refreshing sensation that is just perfect to help promote circulation and revitalize tired feet. Can also be used to soften cracked feet and as a rub for strained muscles.
How To Use:
We think our balm is a real winner. For best results, apply to the feet and heels after a long soak in the bath, just before bedtime put on some old socks and leave till morning.
As with any new product, always apply a small amount before use just to ensure no allergic reactions. Probably best not to use on children under 5 years of age.
