When I was a teenager, I waitressed to earn money for college.  I waitressed when I got to college so I could afford to eat.  Every time I sit down to eat at a restaurant, my feet ache just thinking about those days.  I wish I had had this cooling peppermint lotion recipes back then!

You'll make this recipes completely from scratch, so there are some ingredients that are a little harder to find.  Try your local health food store or follow the links to buy from Amazon.  The rosemary needles can be found in bulk food stores and most grocery stores with the spices.  Just be sure not to get ground rosemary because it is too small to strain out of  the milk.  This recipe is worth it.  I promise.

Before we get to the recipe, I have some exciting news!  I'm having my first giveaway next week.  I've had my blog almost a year, and I just got it redesigned a few months ago.  After weeks of tweaking it, I'm ready to show it off.  I put together some popular ingredients and 10 of my most popular recipes.  Keep checking back for details or follow me on Facebook or Twitter to be the first to know.
