I was working on my July newsletter, and decided to take a little break and make myself a cup of tea. One of the things that I love most about summer is my herb garden… including a big pot of mint. spearmint, peppermint, pineapple mint & Chocolate mint!! Oh, so yummy! Thought that i would take a minute and share this minty little blog with you as i sip my tea…
LEMON-MINT FACE TONER
Oh my goodness… It’s SO HOT outside!! This face toner will instantly refresh and revitalize your summer scorched skin.
1 peppermint tea bag – I love the Trader Joe Organic Mint Melange Tea (1 c. hot water-for steeping)
T. fresh lemon juice,
1/2 c. witch hazel.
Steep the peppermint tea in water for a few minutes. Allow the water to cool down and add the lemon juice and witch hazel to the mix. Store it in a glass jar or spray bottle and keep refrigerated. Just spritz your face whenever you need a cool,refreshing pick‐me-up.
Hmmm… OK, you have probably heard of, and/or tasted, the yummy, muddled, minty drink called a Mojito. Question is – Have you ever had a Mojito Cupcake??? I am guessing not; and neither have I. I’m just thinking that they sound mighty refreshing for a fun little summertime dessert. (Simply scrumptous with a cup of tea…?) Please note that I would certainly not turn down the opportunity to be on the “sampling committee”, if you are so inclined to give this recipe a whirl! I’m standing by…
live happy… laugh, love, dream, create
