And you can get them from garden centers, and also from health shops. Now all you need is half a cup of olive oil, fresh peppermint, a container to make the product, and a container to store the product. Now, it's best to harvest the peppermint in the morning, because this is when the oils are at their peak.
And just fill the glass jar with them. Then start to crush the peppermint, to help release the oils, and pour the olive oil onto the peppermint. Shut the jar, and shake it.
And the next step is actually going to depend on the time of year, because if it's summer, and hot sun, you can leave the glass jar outside for two days, shaking every twelve hours, but for other times of the year, leave it for a month and shake it once a day. And then after this period, all you need to do is strain your oil off. Just put it through a tea strainer, into the glass jar.
And there you have your peppermint oil, and peppermint's really lovely; it's really soothing and cooling, and you can use it in the bath or directly onto the body. .
