Cooling Foot Rub Recipe

It’s pretty hot in my house right now.  It’s not so hot outdoors in Scotland but in the summer it does get pretty hot indoors because we don’t tend to have air conditioning in the UK.  

This Cooling Foot Rub is amazing for cooling down your feet and other parts of your body in the heat. 

It also has some extra amazing benefits.  Did you know that Peppermint is actually really good for maintaining good digestion? 

Another reason for using this is that Peppermint is very uplifting.  So use this when you want a boost, either physical or mental clarity and watch yourself zing into action.  

My whole life changed when I started using Young Living essential oils.  I started with a premium starter kit which contains 11 different oils including Peppermint. 

Not just any old Peppermint, the best quality Young Living peppermint  in the world and that makes all the difference.  this oil was so much more powerful than any other peppermint you’ll have ever used. You literally only need one drop!

So I made myself a Cooling Foot Rub Recipe so I can also use this on my kids feet to help cool them down (don’t use this oil on any part of your child’s body other than the feet. Keep it well away from the face, eyes and genitals.) 

What is so great about Peppermint? 

Peppermint has a strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma. One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing supporting digestion and promoting healthy intestinal function. 

This powerful essential oil is often diluted before topical application. Peppermint may also be used to enhance the flavor of food and water.

I like to add one drop to a large glass of water for mental clarity!  It also really does reduce my appetite.  An oil I could never be without now as I use it for that many things!

Cooling Foot Rub recipe


* You can replace the cocoa butter and the almond oil with coconut oil if you like, but this may melt during hot weather so you might need to keep it in the fridge.  


  1. In a glass jug, melt down your cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil until they become a liquid.
  2.  Put it in the freezer to harden, for 20 minutes.  Don’t leave it any longer or it will harden too much. 
  3. Once the mixture is solid again, but not too hard, add the peppermint essential oil.  Whip it up using an electronic whisk, a food processor with a whisk attachment, a handheld whisk and a bit of elbow grease until the cream is soft and fluffy.
  4. Spoon it into a glass jar. It will keep for months.
  5. Rub this on your feet to cool them down, or a part of your body that is hurting. 

If you are new to essential oils, I recommend you starting with a premium starter kit by Young Living.  You get Peppermint as part of this kit.  Read more about it here.
