A DIY Reviver to Invigorate Tired Legs and Feet!

Stylish pair of heels are great, but legs and feet can pay a price at the end of a day.


Running around on your feet all day can be agony by the time you return home. Aching muscles and burning feet are crying out for relief. Besides a long soothing bath or shower and immersing feet in a therapeutic soak, I have another suggestion to help revive them again with this DIY leg and foot remedy.

You don’t need to buy a lot of fancy ingredients to prepare this homemade lotion, which refreshes them amazingly well.  This lotion with peppermint essential oil has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties to further help.  

You will need to cook and then cool a batch before you can feel better.  Nonetheless, this is great to have on hand when this tired leg and foot problems happen, especially in the summer due to its cool sensation.


DIY Reviver for Tired Legs and Feet

½ cups of aloe vera gel
2 teaspoons of cornstarch, leveled
3 drops of peppermint oil
2 teaspoons of witch hazel
1 tablespoon of olive oil 


Mix all the ingredients except the peppermint oil together before placing in a pan to cook enough to thicken slightly.  You want a spreadable consistency.  Once that stage is reached, let this mixture cool before adding the peppermint essential oil.

Keep in a jar that can seal. A clean peanut butter jar works just fine for this purpose.

When you’re ready, start rubbing some over your legs and feet.  Soon you will notice a wonderful coolness set in to replace that tired feeling.
