Christmas Gifts : Peppermint Candy DIY

Thanks for stopping bye this Tuesday today I am making some cute gifts centered around Peppermint. So let your imagination go and have fun.

Peppermint Lip Gloss :

  1. In a double boiler over medium heat, melt together the beeswax pellets and coconut oil, stirring until smooth. Add the shea butter and stir until melted and smooth. …
  2. Add in the drops of essential oil and stir.
  3. Use a dropper to fill the empty chapstick containers. …
  4. Add the labels.
  5. Enjoy soft lips!

Peppermint Lip Scrub:

  • 3 tablespoons Sugar or Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon  Coconut Oil
  • 2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
  • 2 oz Blue Glass Jar

Instructions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together and transfer sugar lip scrub to a 2 oz. Glass Salve Jar. If you prefer, you can use brown sugar.
  2. To use, place a small amount onto a fingertip and rub on lips with finger for about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Then, rinse off sugar lip scrub with water.  It is good to follow up with a coat of lip balm or virgin coconut oil for extra moisture. 

Peppermint Shampoo

  • ½ cup of castile soap
  • ½ cup of water – water should be distilled or filtered
  • 16 drops of essential rosemary oil
  • 2 drops of essential peppermint oil

Take the castile soap and add into a clean and medium container that could be used as shampoo container. Add essential rosemary and peppermint oil to the container. Mix these ingredients by shaking. Add the distilled water. Mix again and enjoy.

Peppermint Plate DIY

  • 2 bags (8 oz each)s starlight mints (about 78 mints)
  • Heavy-duty aluminum foil

Heat oven to 350°. Line a 10 inch spring pan with foil. Unwrap Mints and cover the foil with Mints. Bake for about 10 minutes until mints start to melt together. Let Cool – a remove from spring man. Let completely Cool. This Candy plate is very fragile – . So be careful

Tips :

The main difference between mint and peppermint is that peppermint has the strongest flavour when compared to other members of the mint family. Mint refers to aromatic herbs produced by the species of the mint plant (Mentha). Peppermint is one such species

Peppermint Plants: Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) is hardy in USDA zones 5 through 9 outdoors, but you can easily grow it indoors too

Easy Peppermint tea :

  1. Boil 2 cups of water.
  2. Add 15 to 20 fresh mint leaves. I like to rub them a bit in my hands to get the oils flowing first.
  3. Turn off the heat, and steep 10 to 15 minutes or until desired strength is achieved.
  4. Strain leaves (or chew them if you don’t mind the texture and they are small) and serve warm with a drizzle of honey and squeeze of lemon.
