Of course, peppermint oil is also known for its energizing properties. If you have trouble waking up in the morning, consider making homemade peppermint soap and using it in your morning shower. It’s a great, natural way to get energized for the day without reaching for a cup of coffee.

  1. Marvellous, a great collection. I did make a peppermint essential oil mix for my scalp, I’ve used it a couple of times but can’t actually say whether it help with the itching and flaky skin or not yet.

  2. There is so very much I don’t know about essential oils, unfortunately. I’ll keep you posted on the scalp deal. However I think the peppermint is just to cover the yuck smell of the vinegar. I have no idea if the essential does anything in itself.

  3. Peppermint oil is one of my favourites! I use it often for healing purposes throughout the year but I would love to try some of these DIY body recipes.

  4. I’ve been meaning to try a DIY bath bomb. I might actually try making them for Christmas presents next year . The peppermint would be great for a Christmas gift especially shaped like a snowflake .
