DIY Recipe of the Month
If you are like me masks have made it all too apparent when you had your last cup of coffee. When you desire to freshen yourself up between brushes, there's nothing better than a homemade breath tonic made with Organic ingredients. This month's focus is on Personal Care Products, and one I have regularly used is this DIY breath freshener. Although many breath sprays can be made without alcohol, I find the addition makes for a cleaner result. As with anything containing alcohol, use sparingly and with caution. It's fun finding your favorite blend of oils. I tend to add a bit more cinnamon with the addition of clove oil for a spicer blend. Using Organic, ingestible, and high-quality essential oils makes all the difference. Make sure to use oils with caution and know the effects of what oils you are putting into your spray.
You can also add in a homemade Peppermint extract for an added punch. I started by adding approx. 2 ounces of peppermint tea to my alcohol the day before I made my breath freshener, letting it sit for 24 hours, then strained out. This gives you a quick extract of peppermint alcohol to use as the base.
