For an easy home spa treatment, soak feet in warm water with 5–10 drops of Peppermint essential oil for up to 15 minutes. Combine 1 tablespoon of cocoa butter with 5 drops of Peppermint oil and massage into feet, focusing on the heel and ball of the foot. The tingling mint sensation will soothe away fatigue, while the cocoa butter will nourish dry skin.

Another great tip for Peppermint oil is to diffuse or inhale it to curb the desire to snack.
