Peppermint oil: natural painkiller and muscle relaxant natural energizer sinus relief natural bug repellant antimacrobial properties Coconut oil: Anti-microbial properties skin softener helps to retain moisture
  1. You'll need: Coconut oil (enough to almost fill your container) Peppermint oil (just a few drops per every 4 ounces, this stuff is potent) plus a kitchen spoon, Glass Containers with lids, a pot with enough water in it to cover the bottle about half way up
  2. Spoon the coconut oil into the container using the spoon, it should be solid at room temperature so press it down gently, like brown sugar.
  3. Add a few drops of peppermint oil
  4. Place the lids on the containers (I used glass jars) and then place them in the pot with the water
  5. Heat the water to boil, keeping a close eye on it. The oil inside will melt until it's clear. If there's a few solid spots in the middle, don't worry they'll melt when you leave them out to soak.
  6. Remove from heat and place them on a cool flat service. Give it a twirl
  7. As it returns to room temperature the balm will solidify again. To use, allow the heat from your hand to warm the oil and apply as needed.
