I really enjoy making my own quick and simple bath and body products from all natural ingredients. When the summer heat strikes, this body spray is a wonderful non-toxic alternative to the chemical-laden body sprays from the store. You can make your very own bottle of this refreshing spray and save money, reduce waste, and take control of what you put on your body.
You’ll need a re-usable misting bottle for spritzing this cooling concoction on your skin. I have a handy little spray bottle that is small enough to stick in my purse. Now that the summer is heating up, I’m carrying that baby with me everywhere!
Not only does this body spray feel refreshing on a hot day, but it helps keep mosquitoes and other insects away while I’m working outside. I find that I need to reapply if I am working up a sweat, but it’s much better for my health than using toxic bug sprays.
You may find that this spray tingles a bit and it can irritate sensitive skin. If you are concerned about this, start with fewer drops of mint and eucalyptus oil and add more if you wish. Do not use the essential oils without diluting them, especially before going out in the sun.
Cooling Eucalyptus Mint Body Spray Recipe
This is so easy to make that I’m almost embarrassed to call this a ‘recipe’…but I’m sharing this as a recipe that you can print out if you wish. (It’s easy enough to jot down on some scratch paper or on a recipe card.)
If you don’t care for the scent of eucalyptus, you may use just mint essential oil. I like the combination and eucalyptus has a nice cooling effect, but you may customize to your liking. You may also add other essential oils to create a refreshing blend. Try lime, lemon, rosemary, or bergamot essential oil for a new twist! Want more ideas? Check out some other suggestions. 🙂
Cooling Eucalyptus Mint Body Spray
- 1/4 cup witch hazel or rubbing alcohol
- 25 drops peppermint essential oil
- 10 drops eucalyptus oil
- Mix all ingredients together in a small spray bottle.
- Shake well before using. Do not spray in eyes or on sensitive areas of the body.
Making Your Own Bath and Body Products is a Great Way to Increase Sustainability
I used to order more bath and body products through a buying club. They carry all natural products that I liked. However, those products are still packaged in a lot of plastic and I’m on a mission to reduce my plastic ‘consumption.’ Now I order the essential oils through my buying club for a better price and make my own bath and body products from scratch. I buy less packaging, customize my body care products to my liking, and I spend less on them.
If you’re like me, saving money and taking care of the environment are important goals. This cooling Eucalyptus Mint Body Spray does both! I hope you enjoy the fresh scent and cooling effect of this all natural, homemade product.
