When we moved into our rental house a year ago we discovered a huge patch of wild mint in our backyard. I’ve been warned about mint, and it’s true, it does grow like a weed! Which is a good thing since the mint I planted (in a pot) earlier this year withered and died after a week in the scorching sun (oops).
So now I can have mojitos all summer long! In fact, I can drink mojitos while relaxing in a minty mojito bath all summer long! Because those totally go together, right?
Mint mojito DIY bath salts
I love making bath salts. It’s the perfect excuse for taking a realllly long bath to test things out.
- 2 cups Epsom salt, sea salt or kosher salt
- Fresh mint, finely diced
- Juice and zest of one lime
- Mint essential oil
- Green food coloring (optional)
In a small bowl, add salt, mint and lime juice and zest. Stir everything together. Then add 3-5 drops of mint essential oil. You can also add 1-2 drops of food coloring to give it a hint of green. Mix together until fragrance and color are well combined. Add 1/2 cup of salt to your bath. Enjoying while sipping a fresh mojito is highly recommended.

Then check out the cool new brand hello. The line of 99% natural toothpastes, mouthwashes and breath sprays come in delicious flavors like – mojito mint! I think these folks like mint as much as I do because they have spearmint, pink grapefruit mint and even supermint flavors.
Yummy minty breath aside, I love their beautiful packaging (which was designed by the folks at BMW). My test products have been getting lots of attention – everyone is drawn to the clean, simple design.
