Putting “Spring” In Your Step

April 14, 2014

Don’t forget to put some “spring” in your step this season with these seasonal tips for your shoes and tootsies from The Good Home Co. Founder Christine Dimmick.

Now is the time to look at your Spring shoes for any repairs. I go through all of mine now and get the heels redone and the shoe polished and ready – so when the warm weather finally arrives my shoes are ready for walking!

Once your shoes are in tip-top shape, here are some tips to keep them feeling and smelling great:

Tip #1 mix 10 drops of peppermint essential oil and 3 drops Eucalyptus or Rosemary in a 2 oz spray bottle – fill to the top with witch hazel. Shake and spray in your shoes to refresh and kill odor and also add a little kick to your step when you wear them barefoot!





Tip #2 Tuck a Closet and Drawer Sachet into your running shoes to keep them fresh.



Tip #3 sandal season is right around the corner. Give your feet a treat and get them ready to be bare with our Peppermint Foot Scrub and Cream.  Our Peppermint foot scrub is custom made to order with only the highest quality ingredients of Sea Salt, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, shower gel, Peppermint essential oil. The organic olive oil base combined with harvested salt base from the Atlantic provide super skin softening benefits.



Follow up with our Foot Lotion – which is our signature body lotion mixed with 100% essential oil of peppermint from India – is wonderful on dry skin and provides the perfect amount of moisture without being greasy.

Hopefully you and your family will get away for Spring break and enjoy the warm weather. Or maybe you are lucky enough to live in a warm climate full time!


I like to say the sign of a good vacation is that you need a new pedicure. Why? It means you have had your feet in the sand a lot and your polish was worn away. The good news is the sand also exfoliates your skin as well.

Tip #4 While relaxing by the beach – take a long walk or sit with your feet in the sand and take a handful and rub at your heels. And when you get home just rinse and follow with a good moisturizer. The salt in the sand can be drying – but its exfoliating benefits are worth it!
