This can be used as a spray, rinse, or soak and is great for helping to squelch those horrible itchies! Thanks to Jennifer Rose of GoddesslocksPA for this recipe!
1 tbsp loose peppermint herb (or tea bag)
1 cup of water
(opt. but recommended) 10-20 drops peppermint essential oil
(opt. but recommended) 10-20 drops lavendar essential oil
(opt.) 1 tbsp aloe gel and/or 10 drops tea tree oil
