Invigorate your feet at the end of a tough day with this rich and minty scrub.  The raw sugar scrub will smooth and cleanse, while the cocoa butter makes your feet super soft. Peppermint oil is a well-known energizer. Use this scrub anytime your feet—and spirits—need a lift. MAKES 6 OUNCES.

• 2 tablespoons cocoa butter, grated
• 2 tablespoons almond oil
• 1/2 cup raw sugar
• 4 to 5 drops peppermint essential oil

1. Gently heat cocoa butter and almond oil until cocoa butter melts; stir well.

2. Add sugar and peppermint oil and mix.



3. Massage into clean feet and rinse with warm water. If your feet are extremely dry, massage in a bit more cocoa butter and cover your feet with clean cotton socks for 15 to 20 minutes.
