Peppermint and the Christmas season go so well together. The scent and the taste send me right into a winter wonderland full of nostalgia and joyful memories this time of year! The past few years I have made peppermint brownies, diffused peppermint oil in my home, and even put drops of it in the water under my tree because, let’s face it, by Epiphany it’s not so fresh anymore. Another great way to use peppermint oil is to make a relaxing and invigorating bath salt. You can make this quickly for yourself, or it makes a sweet gift for anyone.
- 3 cups Epsom salt
- 2 cups sea salt
- 1 cup baking soda
- 2-3 drops of pure peppermint essential oil
In a large bowl combine Epsom salt, sea salt, and baking soda. Add in peppermint essential oil (you can always adjust the amount to your liking). Stir well; then scoop into a glass jar with a lid for storage or gifting. This will yield about 6 cups of bath salts total.
