The Powers of Peppermint
Being “pedi-ready” come sandal season is a must. But beyond that, summer warrants a little extra TLC for our soles. While summer appears to be lazy days on the river soaking up sun (SPF-protected, of course), think about the extra walking, running and outdoor activities you’re able to squeeze in on those warm, long summer days and nights. Our feet just seem to be exhausted at the end of the day.
Worth the extra effort to soothe your soles is a minty massage with J.R. Watkins Peppermint Foot Repair Salve (bonus points if you can convince your spouse/significant other to do the massaging). Our salve provides intense relief for calluses and dry skin. The oil-based salve melts into the skin soothingly and a boost of peppermint oil helps increase circulation, which in turn helps ease pain.
For daytime, prep your feet post-shower with our Peppermint Foot Cream. It will help moisturize your feet and the peppermint aroma is a great start to the day (assuming you’ve had your coffee!)
Take care of those soles this summer and make the most of the season!
J.R. Watkins Peppermint Foot Salve in November’s Birchbox
We’re so excited to tell you about our latest collaboration! We’ve teamed with Birchbox and are making our debut in the November Box with our Peppermint Foot Repair Salve. This is a year-round staple for us, but is perfect for soothing away the havoc winter wreaks on feet.
The formula is packed with olive, safflower and peppermint oils that melt seamlessly onto your skin, instantly healing rough patches. Plus, it imparts a refreshing, tingly feeling that feels great at the end of a hard day. Our expert advice? Slather it on before bed under a thick pair of socks and wake up with smooth soles.

Color Your Summer
Summer is sandal season, which also means the population is also paying a bit more attention to feet—and so are we. We can’t get enough of our Natural Peppermint Foot Scrub and Peppermint Rejuvinating Foot Cream for the ultimate DIY pedicure at home. The pure peppermint oil infuses feet with a burst of cool refreshment that is rejuvenating and relaxing. The scrub is also perfect for daily use in the shower (for men too!).
And what’s a good pedicure without a great polish? Season after season, we love Zoya and their selection of eco-friendly polishes. The summertime colors are a team favorite—especially the bright red shade, Sooki.
