Natural Peppermint Hand and Foot Salve

The cold weather can be hard on our hands and feet and leave them dry and cracked. Instead of reaching for fragrant and toxic lotions, try something more natural and soothing. This also makes the perfect affordable holiday gift for someone you want to show your appreciation for!


1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup shea butter

1/4 cup beeswax

1/4 cup avocado oil

10 drop peppermint essential oil


1. Melt the shea butter, beeswax, coconut oil

2. Add avocado oil

3. Let cool at room temperature 

4. Add peppermint essential oil before it hardens 

5. It may set at room temperature or you may have to put it in the fridge depending on how warm your home is. 


Too thick or not think enough? Add more or less beeswax depending on your needs!
