This collection is the ultimate tool needed for pampering yourself.  It is great for new moms, people who work on their feet, and anyone who just needs to relax.  This is the perfect addition to the end of any day, especially the really hard ones.  With lavender to calm and relax you and peppermint to chase away any headaches, this collection will sure to become a regular favorite.  Peppermint is also a very strong antiviral, which is great for small cuts and scraps as well as to help keep the feet clean and your toe nails healthy.

Lavender and Peppermint Soap

White glycerin soap base

Lavender flowers/ dried

Peppermint essential oil

Melt the soap base in a double boiler or in something similar to a double boiler, like a glass bowl in a pan of water.  Pick out the mold you wish to use for your soap and prepare it with a mold release of some kind.  I prefer to use petroleum jelly for this myself.  When your soap base is completely melted, remove from the heat and add the peppermint essential oil and the lavender flowers.  Mix this up very well.  Pour the melted soap mixture into you prepared mold and let it cool for several hours.  Once your soap has set and is completely cool to the touch, take it out of the mold, and wipe off any mold release left on it.  If your soap is difficult to unmold, try putting it in the freezer for a little while and try again. Last, cut your soap and package it as you desire. 

Lavender and Peppermint Foot Soak

1Part finely ground sea salt

2 Parts Epsom salt

Peppermint essential oil

Lavender Flowers/ dried

Find a clean, and dry sealable container.  Place the sea salt in the bottom of your container.  Add the peppermint essential oil and stir into the sea salt very well.  Next add the lavender flowers and Epsom salt.  Mix this up very well.  Store the salt in this sealable container and shake well everyday for a week before using it.  After the first week, you can package this in plastic for retail/gifts or leave in its container and use as you need it.  This wonderful salt can be used as a bath salt and is every bit as relaxing as I mentioned above, but it is great as a foot soak because peppermint is so good for your feet.
