Bonus, this stuff smells amazing and gives you such an energizing feeling!
Fill your glass bottle with 3/4 cup of distilled water. Using a funnel, add 2 tablespoons of aloe oil, 2 teaspoons of witch hazel and 1 teaspoon of fractionated coconut oil. Make sure you are using fractionated coconut oil, since this type of oil stays in its liquid form instead of becoming a solid like other coconut oils. Top off your mist with 25 drops of pure peppermint essential oil and 10 drops of lavender essential oil. Voila!
I love that the aloe, witch hazel and lavender are super soothing and calming on the skin, especially great if you have a sunburn. The peppermint will leave your skin feeling nice and cool too. This will be your best friend during the hot months for sure! Put a bottle in your gym bag, pool bag and purse… you won’t be sorry. 😉 Lots of love, Sav.
Is there a child safe alternative? Since I believe peppermint is not recommended for kids?
Hi Jamie! Spearmint is a safe alternative 🙂
Another product I was looking to get into. Loving this and so easy to DIY. Thank you for posting this.
I can’t wait to try this. My climate in upstate NY is not nearly as hot as Georgia but it’s been a hot summer anyway. Especially since my four year old thinks we need to live outside! It looks so refreshing 🙂
In addition, I recommend researching the use of essential oils around pets (which is good practice with any new products). While they can have great affects on pets as well, it takes very little before some can overwhelm and even be toxic. Cats are unable to metabolize many of the oils. These are a handful of ones that are known to be toxic and should be used with caution in a home with cats – malaleuca, citrus, peppermint, and most of the “hot oils”.
Love this! Any way we can get a link to print out the label, too?
Unfortunately a reminder needs to be made for some people: do NOT spray this in enclosed areas (locker rooms, public vehicles, office cubicles, etc.) or while in close proximity to others. It’s rude, and could cause allergic/asthmatic reactions. We were at a public event seated on bleachers recently and a woman in the row in front of us repeatedly sprayed herself and her children, bathing not only them but us in whatever was in her spraybottle.
I love the idea; just don’t forget your manners.
This looks ace definitely going to try it X
Yes! I am trying this immediately, so perfect for summer!
We’ve been having a hot streak in CT so this sounds very inviting. Love that you threw in essential oils, especially lavender!
A little peppermint oil in cool water is my favourite in the summer. Will have to give your variation a try!
The doterra brand essential oils should not be stored in plastic as they can break it down. This would be nice in a diffuser or even stored in a ceramic pot. It’s nice to see such influential bloggers use essential oils, love it!!
That sounds divine!
I haven’t made any products yet but I think the Cooling Body Mist has just set the tingle for me to try it. Thanks ladies

That’s a wonderful idea for hot days! I made one with cucumber and green tea, and it’s so refreshing!
Sounds and looks so refreshing!
would love to try this idea, make your own minty body mist it’s sound very great idea to try, it worthy i bet.
Denver has given us some very hot days this summer…I love this idea!
Oh my word, yes! When I saw this post I first thought, “Yeah, Georgia has been a disaster this year…” and I’m glad someone else thought so, too! Can’t wait to try this spray in Statesboro!

Hi beauties! This mist looks wonderful. The thing is that I never find the occasion to use them…
Check out my latest post about why Prada suddenly jumped in the e-commerce world, launching in Net A Porter and My Theresa same day last week.
Have a wonderful evening! MG <3
This is such a refreshing idea, love it!
