Cool Summer Foot Oil

With things starting to heat up around here, I wanted to make a light, non-greasy foot oil that had a little bit of menthol for a slight cooling affect. I am not looking for something so intense the user will want to wash their feet afterwards. I am just looking for a very mild cooling oil. Shall we head to the kitchen for some cool foot goodness?

I used High Melt Point Shea Butter in this recipe because I didn’t want to have to worry about fractionation. I also think High Melt Point Shea Butter is a little denser and creamier than regular Shea Butter. I wanted that dense creamy goodness in this formulation. The High Melt Point Shea would also make it a little thicker than if I had used regular Shea Butter.

Additionally, I used Rice Bran Oil. The Rice Bran Oil was used in the recipe to keep the texture light and from feeling too greasy. I didn’t want it greasy because while I hate shoes and even more when my feet get dry or rough, I hate slip-sliding away in my shoes and on the tile floor. Heavy foot creams tend to leave greasy foot prints on the floor and me grabbing onto every piece of furniture to keep me from landing on my backside.

I also used Isopropyl Myristate to reduce the greasy feeling of this foot butter. Can you tell I am not a fan of greasy feeling butters? Are you now ready to make this foot butter? I know I am!
