Epsom Salt Peppermint Foot Scrub

This lively scrub might make you want to play footsie. Soaking your feet first in warm saltwater not only feels heavenly, it also softens tough skin for maximum benefits.

1 cup Epsom salt
1/3 cup almond oil or olive oil
1 tablespoon castile soap
6 drops pure essential oil of peppermint

Mix all of the ingredients thoroughly in a bowl. Soak your feet first if desired, using 3 quarts of hot water directly from the faucet or warmed on the stove top to a comfortable temperature. Pour the water into a basin and mix in 1/4 cup table salt or Epson Salts. Soak those lovely feet for a good 15 minutes. Then, scrub your dear feet with the mixture because you work so hard. Rinse them off and rest.

I would like to know if the olive oil that is used for this scrub is the normal olive oil you use in the kitchen for cooking?
