In summer, certain parts of our body, such as our feet, can suffer from the heat (swelling, pain, heavy legs...). To soothe them, we'd like to spend our days soaking our feet in cold water.

Fortunately, there are some very effective solutions that you can even do yourself.

Today, we'd like to suggest a simple DIY solution to relax, refresh and nourish your feet.

Before starting your DIY recipes, it is important to download the recommended Hygiene Rules.

Attributes amount per 100g

  • 3 tablespoons shea butter (48.3g / 48.3ml/ 48.3%)

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (25.4g/ 25.4ml / 25.4%)

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (25.4g/ 25.4ml / 25.4%)

  • 10 drops True lavender essential oil (0.43g / 0.43%)

  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil (0.43g / 0.43%)


  1. To make preparation easier, start by softening the shea butter, but do not melt it completely.

  2. Once again, we chose to soften it for a few seconds in a bain-marie.

  3. Once the shea butter has softened, add the coconut oil and avocado oil.

  4. Whisk until the consistency is thicker and firmer (but not too much).

  5. Finish by adding the essential oils and whisk a little more.

  6. Your relaxing foot cream is ready.

  7. To store, transfer to a clean, sterilized container. (You can make this recipe 5 times)

How to use this product

As it contains essential oils, it should not be applied before exposure to the sun.

Use in the evening after a long day. Take the time to massage your feet thoroughly and enjoy the freshness of your treatment.

Tip: For added freshness, you can store your cream in a cool place. (In hot weather, it's better to keep it in the fridge).

Focus on the ingredients

Lavender essential oil has relaxing properties, while peppermint essential oil is also relaxing but above all refreshing.

The combination of the two in your foot cream will do your feet a world of good.

Remember to test the essential oils in the crook of your elbow before making this DIY.

If your skin reacts, these essential oils are not for you.

You can make this recipe up to 5 times from the ingredients listed above.
