In our house we keep the peppermint oil or tea on hand, especially during the cold season. Peppermint has so many health benefits. It helps settle stomach aches, acts as an expectorant for colds and cough, helps ease body aches and pains, and many other things. Even my 8-year-old asks for a peppermint bath when she’s sick and loves it!!! This is to great of a thing to keep to ourselves though, so I’m sharing how we make peppermint bath salts.
So, this is super easy!
peppermint oil (can be bought or homemade)
food coloring (optional)
All you do is mix 1 1/2 cups of epsom salt, 1/2 cup regular salt, 3-5 drops of peppermint oil together. For a holiday touch separate mixture into equal halves. Set one half aside and add about 5 drops of red or green to the other half (you could even separate into 3 equal halves to use all 3 colors.) Then layer it in a jar/container. Make sure to fill the jar to the top and pack tight so that the colors won’t mix.
This all takes literally seconds to throw together and is inexpensive, which makes it a perfect gift idea. Or it’s just nice to have a jar for yourself:)
Have and enjoyable Holiday Season!!!
