This was a Christmas gift I made for my mom and she loves it. I let her try many variations, but this was her favorite.


You will need the following items for this project:

  • 1-Cup dry powdered milk
  • 1/4-Cup corn starch
  • 1/4-Cup Baking Soda
  • Peppermint Extract (or any essential oil you choose)
  • Container to store it in (Small Ball brand jars work well)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk

Add the dry milk, Baking Soda, and corn starch in the mixing bowl. Whisk the dry ingredients together so that they are evenly blended and it gives the powder a smooth silky feel. Start adding peppermint extract a little at a time and whisk it in to the dry ingredients. Continue adding the peppermint till you have your desired scent. I used about 20 drops, but this part is really up to the individual.

Put in your glass jar and your done.

My mom adds a 1/4 cup or so to her running bath water and she loves the feel of her skin afterwards.

This makes a great gift or just a nice way to pamper yourself! Let's face it, we all need a little pick me up sometimes.

Any questions or comments, please feel free to give me a yell!!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and I hope you all have a great 2014!!
