Peppermint foot soak is the perfect holiday gift.
A few weeks ago, I got such a nice email from a reader regarding my peppermint sugar scrub and body butter gifts that I made last year. She loved the tags and requested tags for some peppermint foot soak that she is making for Christmas gifts. I had been thinking about making another gift-in-a-jar and realized that peppermint foot soak would be amazing. So I had to make some for
myself my family and friends.
Let me tell you … this stuff smells amazing! I love using peppermint essential oil during the holidays. Did you know that you can use it in your baking too? You should check out my white chocolate peppermint pudding cookies and make a day of it by baking the cookies and making this foot soak. I made this foot soak around lunch and by the time my kids got home from school, you could still smell the peppermint in the house. It really got me into the Christmas spirit!
Peppermint Foot Soak Supplies
- 1 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- small mason jars
How to Make Peppermint Foot Soak
- Combine all ingredients and mix well
- Store in airthight jar
- When ready to use, add 2-3 tablespoons of mixture per gallon of hot water
The amount of foot soak in the recipe will fill approximately 2 of the jars pictured above with some left over. I bought the jars at Target in the dollar spot last year but you can find similar jars on Amazon.
And I just can’t resist creating adorable tags for my gifts-in-a-jar.
This foot soak goes great with my peppermint sugar scrub and peppermint body butter. Package them all up together for the perfect Christmas gift! Download all the gift tags below. They are approximately 2″. Print them out either on a full sheet label or on heavy white cardstock.
You can access the tags in the resource library, available to my email subscribers.

Love this idea….thank you for sharing it.
I have 2 questions, first…does this require air drying before putting the lid on the jar after making it? My second question is, what is the shelf life?
Thanks again and look forward to hearing from you.
Hi Pamela… I did not air dry it. Just mix together and put the lid on. It should be good for about 6-12 months. Just make sure to keep it in an airtight container.

I love your peppermint sugar scrub labels… is there a link you can send me so that I can copy these for my jars?
Hi Dawn! The labels are located in the resource library which is available to my email subscribers. You can access the library by entering your email in the box at the bottom of this post or in the sidebar of the blog.
Thank you so much for sharing the recipe and free printable! We are using this for several christmas gifts this year and my little girl loved helping make it! 🙂
Hi Lauren! I’m so glad you liked it. Thanks for stopping by!
This looks so good! What a fun gift to make for friends or to enjoy yourself!
Loved all the recipes and so did all the people I gifted them to,! I even used different scents and they all turned out great! Problem is the labels, I’m not really great with that kind of stuff and I wondered if you could send blank labels or tell me how to fix them so they could say. Lime FootScrub or Orange Body Butter for example. Thanks so much for the help and the great recipes and ideas!!!
There is a link in the post to order full sheet labels. You could also print out the labels on sticker paper. As for designing your own labels, I recommend using a free site like Canva. Here is a tutorial on how to do it: https://kellyleighcreates.com/make-printables-with-canva/
This is such a wonderful idea and I love that it is so easy and inexpensive and can be made in quantity! Thank you for sharing!
