I keep a blend with just peppermint, for whenever I’m feeling down…the aroma reminds me of my mom, who always carried doublemint gum in her purse and coat pockets. I use the same blend in a spray bottle with aloe vera and vitamin E and spray my neck, arms and shoulders…so cooling when the temps are high!
