On one nice and sunny Sunday morning I was stood up by my friend (too much partying the night before) for our morning coffee meeting, hence I had to grind and make my own (not that I am complaining) coffee. And while drinking it at home not only had I plenty of time on my hands but also a head full of ‘icy’ ideas for tired feet.
Recently I received an email from my friend, who advised me to freeze peppermint because it keeps the smell and freshness when frozen. Peppermint ice cubes are perfect for flavoring teas, but I (of course) thought of other ways to use it. This frozen herb is ideal for refreshing and soothing tired feet!
The process is very simple. Crush some peppermint leaves, place them into ice moulds, fill them with water and place into the freezer. Simple as that! When the ice is frozen solid, make your foot bath.
Place handful of sea salt into the warm foot bath or pour a few drops of honey/oil. Scatter a few rose petals and finally add fresh and shiny peppermint ice cubes. Dip your tired feet into your home made foot bath and relax!
