Peppermint Foot Chiller for Tired, Hot Feet


| 11/15/2019 10:44:00 AM


 

Folks, it doesn’t have to be summertime for you to experience dog-tired, hot, sweaty feet.  Just ask anyone who routinely spends a lot of time on their feet . . . landscapers, brick masons, carpenters, massage therapists, sales clerks, waiters, parents of young children, runners, school teachers, hair stylists, exercise instructors, nurses, etc.  Their poor tootsies take a beating all year long! 

Your feet are your foundation – ever think about that?  They literally connect you with the earth, stabilize your being, take you from point A to point B, and enable you to jump, run, ski, bike, swim, and enjoy life, often with grace and style.  It’s very difficult to get along without them.  At the end of the day, after being on them for hours, your poor fatigued, throbbing, sweaty, swollen “barking dogs” are in need of refreshment, rejuvenation, and relief!  For all the support they give, regular soothing care is recommended to keep them (and you) happy!  In this blog, I offer a simple, natural, soothing, aromatic solution that you can make in 5 minutes flat – a few minty spritzes will leave you with comfortable, cool feet so you can step lively once again!

I’m a practicing foot reflexologist and the DIY spritzer recipe below is one that I use nearly every day in my treatments.  I spray a light mist on my client’s feet and lower legs at the end of their session and massage it in real good!  They’re usually quite relaxed after 75 minutes of foot work, so this minty-fresh spray perks them up a bit, hydrates their skin (which is often dry), and sends them out the door with feet feeling ultra-revived!

Bonus uses?  You bet!  This spray doubles as a superior room freshener – perfect to deodorize both bathrooms and mud rooms where stinky shoes are stored.  Simply spritz into the air a few times (and into shoes, too) and say good-bye to staleness and odor. 



Make yourself a batch, won’t you?  This recipe is also perfect for gift-giving – design a decorative custom label with directions, ingredients, and date made.  I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love to receive a bottle of this pleasingly fragrant spritzer.
