DIY Whipped Peppermint Foot Cream – Best Foot Cream Ever

 Easy Homemade Foot Cream
It may seem counter-intuitive because of all the rain and snow, but winter is one of the driest seasons and the hardest on the skin. The last thing you want is dry, cracked skin! It is super important to stay hydrated and to moisturize your dry skin! I don’t know about anyone else but my poor feet get the worst of it in the winter. They are dry, uncomfortable, and cracked heels don’t look pretty either!  Today we want to share with you our best foot cream recipe.  We think you’re going to love this whipped foot cream.
Have any of you gotten a pedicure, and had the pedicurist pull out a cheese grater because your feet were so dry?  I mean, it can’t get more embarrassing than that!  I clearly remember getting one with my daughter and they pulled one out.  What was even more mortifying was the amount of dry skin that came off of my feet.  From that moment on, I decided I needed to take a minute every day to take better care of my feet.
Use this cream every morning on your feet and you will soon see your skin start to find it’s youthful softness.

Hydrate Skin

Our bodies absorb so much through our feet especially with whatever foot lotion we use. Because of this, we really want to make sure we are hydrating and soothing them with the best foot cream recipe!  I also want to make sure we are using quality ingredients.  Since our skin is our largest organ, we need to make sure that we are putting non-toxic products on it.  That is why I love to make things myself, so I know exactly what is in it.
Putting this foot cream on will help with your cracked heels because it will help to hydrate them.

Peppermint foot cream is a classic, as well as a favorite holiday scent! Unlike a regular shea butter foot cream, we have included a few other top-notch ingredients to really bring this together as the best foot cream! Better than your normal DIY lotion, this brings out the top players for ultimate hydration with ingredients like beeswax, cocoa butter, and vitamin E all create a soft, buttery experience!

I like to make up a batch of this cream so it’s ready when the harshness of winter strikes.  Then, when I am busy getting ready for the holidays I don’t have to worry about making one extra thing for myself (or for gifts).  Make a double batch and you have something ready for gift-giving.  Have you ever had someone drop off a Christmas gift and you thought, shoot, I don’t have anything for them?     Since this has happened to me so many times now, I try to keep a few things ready to gift if someone unexpected rings my doorbell.

Ingredients for the Best Foot Cream Ever!

Instructions For Whipped Peppermint Foot Cream

  1. In a glass (pyrex) measuring cup or bowl, measure the beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter and grapeseed oil.
  2. Put some water into a shallow pan and start to warm up the water.  I like the water to be hot, like just before it starts to boil.
  3. Place the bowl (with your ingredients in it) into the boiling water.  Make sure the water isn’t too high so that it doesn’t get into your ingredients.  With the post of water off the stove, stir your ingredients in the bowl until it is melted.
  4. I like to do it this way so you don’t lose any of the good properties of the ingredients we are using.  You can likewise do this in a microwave if you are crunched for time.
  5. Let the mixture cool until just before begins to solidify completely, then stir in the glycerin, Vitamin E oil, and essential oils.
  6. Allow the mix to cool completely at room temperature.
  7. Using a spatula, transfer the cream to a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, or a regular mixing bowl to use a hand mixer. Turn the mixer on to medium speed, to break up and begin to whip the cream.
  8. After about 25 seconds, or when the mixture is beginning to look creamy, turn it off and sprinkle the cornstarch (you could alternately use arrowroot powder) evenly into the bowl.
  9. Turn the mixer back on at a low setting to incorporate the cornstarch (this is to avoid a cornstarch blizzard in your kitchen!) Mix the cornstarch in and then turn the mixer to high speed and whip until the cream is fluffy, light, and opaque.   The mixture should seem like frosting, but it’s not, so don’t eat it!
  10. When the cream is whipped, transfer it to cream jars. This is enough mix to make 5 of our 50 ml cream jars, which are great for small gifts or as part of a gift basket. Or this recipe will fit in 1 of our larger 250 ml cream jars for a bigger gift. Just double, triple, etc. the recipe to make an amount that you need!

How to Use

You can keep your homemade foot cream recipe in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.  This should help your cream to last for 6 months or more.  Don’t worry though, I’m sure you’ll go through it faster than that!  Be sure to keep away from heat and direct sunlight.  This could cause ingredients to go rancid prematurely.

You can apply this daily or as needed to your feet throughout winter, or all year long! I like to put this foot cream on in the morning with socks on top to help lock in moisture.  I do love this cream in the morning since it uses peppermint essential oils.  As we said above, your feet are very absorbent, so I only do this with the best foot cream I can find (or make!)

Don’t forget to make this for your friends, family, and neighbors.  They will absolutely love this foot cream.  Think about gifting this to those who are on their feet all day too.  They’re going to need a batch of our best foot cream too!

What Essential Oil To Use

This recipe calls for peppermint essential oil especially.  I love to use it in the morning, as I often put peppermint oil on my feet to help get me going.  Keep in mind, however that peppermint is often a stimulating essential oil.  If you use this at night, you might find it hard to go to sleep.  If you intend to use this foot cream in the evening or right before you climb under your warm blankets, I would consider using a different essential oil.  Feel free to substitute the essential oils used as you see fit.  A good night time essential oil would be lavender or Roman Chamomile.
