Thank you for the idea! Just made this for late Christmas gifts.. I filled 45 1/2 pint jars. I used the following:
128 oz plus 4c of Walmart brand epsom salt
64 oz (20c) Walmart powdered milk in the bag
140 Peppermint tea bags, opened and emptied
3 drops peppermint essential oil in each jar
I love it! Thank you!!

Wow! You are a thoughtful little elf! These are such great gifts...hope everyone enjoys them!
Thank you for the lovely idea. Can I use glycerin oil instead of milk .also, different aromas like lavender etc... .I will try the recipe. Thank you
Erin Henry says
You can definitely use different aromas like lavender. We don't know anything about the properties of glycerin and how they would react in this recipe.
If I replaced the milk for oats would this work or have same effect? I don’t have any powdered milk, thanks.
Hi Marie, I've never tried it before, but the oats seem like they would work. The powdered milk softens the skin, and I know oats can have the same effect. let me know how it goes!
Hi, did the oats work for you? I want to gift this for someone who has a dairy allergy so I was curious. I can’t wait to make this for everyone!
Sorry I haven’t tried it yet!
Has anyone tried the oatmeal?
A question about the Peppermint Foot Soak. After soaking you feet for 15-20 minutes, do you rinse it off, when you're finished?
Good question, Adriana. I'd give them a quick rinse to feel clean and refreshed. Thanks!
If I follow the recipe I would need 12 ounces of peppermint tea for the amount of gifts I'm looking to make. You say we can use either, or on the peppermint oil or tea. So what would you do when making such a large batch? I saw where you said to open 1 or 2 tea bags for one batch, so could I just use 12-24 tea bags?
If you're making a large batch, it's up to you. You'll need about 10-15 drops per batch if you use the oil or at least a tea bag per batch. I'm not sure which would be more economical.
