the magic of mint

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…


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.

Mojito Cupcakes

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
