Connie's Peppermint Foot Cream


    Date : 1999-04-23

    I formulated this recipe for tired feet, but I also like to rub it on my neck & shoulders, and any other tired muscles.

    Ingredients:

      5 grams Germaben II
      5 grams Peppermint Essential Oil
      15 grams Stearic Acid
      20 grams Liquid Glycerin
      25 grams Emulsifying Wax
      75 grams Regular Cocoa Butter
      355 grams Distilled Water

    Instructions:

    • Weigh all ingredients except Germaben II and Fragrance together.
    • Heat in microwave (or on top of the stove) until all solid ingredients are melted (just before water begins to boil).
    • Blend with immersion blender to ensure complete emulsification.
    • Add Germaben II and mix well.
    • Let cool a little and then add the Peppermint Essential Oil.
    • Mix once more with the immersion blender.
    • Allow to cool. You may stir again as cooling.
    • When cool spoon into eight 2-ounce jars.

    Notes & Comments:

    Makes eight 2-ounce jars.

    CAUTION: Do not use this cream on any sensitive areas as the Peppermint Essential Oil tingles.

    Hope you enjoy it.
