Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

The smell of the essential peppermint oil always makes me happy. I loved learning about this recipe from the book ' Spa - Glow Guide - Simple Steps For Health and Well Being' by Andrea Mc Cloud. This is a quick and easy way to invigorate the body and the soul. It increases blood flow to the brain, gives you an energy boost and leaves you feeling fresh and renewed. I hope you enjoy it too!

I enjoyed this cold compress after having "one of those days". The peppermint smelled wonderful and I did feel relaxed and a little energized. Be careful not to over do with the peppermint oil and have the compress smelling to strong.
