Teacher Gift- peppermint foot scrub

While scanning recent pins on pinterest I found a wonderful recipe for peppermint foot scrub and thought what a great idea for an end of school teachers gift. Now that kindergarten has gone full day and since my daughter is in french immersion she has 8 teachers/support staff and my other daughter has two teachers. 10 gifts total seemed somewhat daunting and since I didn’t want to get gifts that would end up in the landfill and don’t feel like spending $100 on gift cards I thought this was the perfect gift. I always love homemade things and this is especially useful for the time of year.

Unfortunately I cannot find the original pin again but the recipe is as follows;

1 cup of sugar
oil of choice – add enough till the sugar is moist but still grainy (we used safflower oil but I imagine any could be used)
few drops of peppermint essential oil (could switch this also, maybe orange or lavender)

Write out some little cards and attach with ribbon or string.  Great scissor and writing practice!!

Now bring it to school but make sure to save some for yourself.  We actually had a hard time not eating it all and decided it would taste great on a chocolate cookie, after all the ingredients are edible.
