Simple spray for the heatwave.

This recipe came across my social media radar this week and it’s so simple and effective I had to share it in a blog.

Heatwave Peppermint Spray

Heat Wave Peppermint Spray (AC in a Bottle)

10g peppermint essential oil

10g menthol essential oil

Equal volume of solubilizer (Polysorbate 20) (I used a natural safe substitute instead of Polysorbate 20.)

200mL aloe vera juice

Weigh the essential oils out into an empty spray bottle, and top off with an equal amount of solubilizer.  Swirl to combine. Add a small amount of aloe vera juice and shake gently to combine. Add the rest of the aloe vera, shake gently to combine.

To use, spritz on bare skin.

If you don’t want to use the solubilizer you can leave it out and just shake thoroughly before each use. That means the mixture will not emulsify at all and you’ll likely have troubles getting it to spritz evenly.

My Cooling Mist with some tweaked ingredients

5 drops Eucalyptus essential oil

5 drops Spearmint essential oil

200ml distilled aloe vera water

10 drops vegetable glycerin (which is all natural and also very moisturizing for your skin.)

Shake well and spray!

You get a refreshing spritz that cools you down for a moment. The essential oils also leave a lasting tingle on your skin and you smell minty fresh.

My coworkers enjoyed this spray in our hot workplace yesterday and some of the clients enjoyed it as well.

Just a simple tip to beat the heat!
