It is hard to stay cool on a hot summer day where the sun is trying to smack you with heat. Luckily, natural peppermint spray can keep you cool even during hot summer days. The credits of this incredible property go to the menthol contained in peppermint essential. Which hazel and aloe vera are also products that have cooling properties, and mixing both of them with peppermint essential oil will work wonders.
To make the peppermint essential oil you are going to need the following ingredients.
- 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
- 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel
- 2 ounces of witch hazel
- 4-ounce spray bottle
- 2 ounces of distilled water
How to prepare the cooling spray
Start by thoroughly mixing distilled water with both witch hazel and aloe vera until the aloe vera fully dissolves into the solution.
Add Essential Oil
Now, it is time for the MVP. Add in 5 drops of peppermint oil and make sure not to add more because the oil is very strong.
Now, you’re basically done, just pour the final mix in a spray bottle and shake it well for additional mixing.
How to use the peppermint cooling spray
The safest way to use the spray is by spraying it onto a towel and pat your face with it (you don’t want to directly spray the peppermint spray on your face because it contains witch hazel and peppermint and they may sting your body). As for the rest of the body, feel free to spray it all over it to keep it cool.
