Essential oils are a natural way to heal a number of ailments such as headaches and migraines. One way to use essential oils is to add them to beauty products such as DIY body recipes. Everything from bath bombs to homemade soap can be made with essential oils. But why would you choose peppermint oil over others? You will find below 10 peppermint body recipes to make for the holiday season.
Peppermint Oil Benefits
Peppermint oil has so many benefits. Not only does it have a scent that reminds you of the holidays, but the health benefits are amazing. Peppermint essential oil relieves headaches, reduces stress, improves blood circulation, and even boosts immunity. This is just a few of the benefits that come from smelling peppermint oil.
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.
While peppermint oil can be added to a diffuser, adding it to homemade body recipes is so much better. Imagine taking a hot bath and enjoying the scent of peppermint. It’s a great way to unwind after a hard day. The scent will naturally reduce stress.
DIY Body Recipes As A Gift
Any of these peppermint body recipes would make an awesome gift. If you have a friend in your life that’s going through a rough time, consider making some homemade beauty products for her. Put them all in a gift basket along with some chocolate, a good book, and maybe a journal. It’s just a nice way to let that person know you’re thinking of them.

Tis the season for peppermint and cinnamon everything. Some of these are very lovely ideas.
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.
Keep us posted!
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.
Awesome diy recipes, peppermint smells great, wakes me up. Sure is good for headaches too. Lovely especially for the holidays.
