Fresh White Mint Body Scrub

This year the mint in our garden is growing exceptionally well. Although there are dozens of varieties of mint plants, I chose to plant only two: chocolate mint and spearmint.

The spearmint will be used exclusively for my culinary extracts. The chocolate mint will go right into a new line of bath products. I like a combination of sugar and dead sea salts in my scrubs.

I will extract the chocolate/mint fragrance oil from the leaves by making an infusion with hot oil and the mint leaves. Infusion typically takes weeks with oils. This way, we can make each mint body scrub without any artificial fragrance oil.
