Frozen Eucalyptus Mint Towels

Need something that will leave you feeling refreshed even after being outside in the hot summer sun? These Frozen Eucalyptus Mint Towels could be just the thing you need. Not only are they cool to the touch, but the essential oils will help the cooling sensation last even longer on your skin and may help you feel energized as you breathe in the pleasant aroma. You could even try using them after a good workout!


These frozen towels are simple to make, and you may want to double or triple the recipe below so you can always have one in the freezer whenever you need one!

Step 1: Mix epsom salts and essential oils together. The epsom salts help the essential oils mix with the water so the oils will be distributed throughout all the washcloths you use rather than only being absorbed into the first towel.


Step 2: Add warm water, and stir until the salts are dissolved.


Step 3: Soak the washcloths in the water, and wring out the excess liquid.

Step 4: Fold each washcloth in half and roll it up.

Step 5: Place the washcloths in the freezer until frozen (about 2 hours).

Step 6: Enjoy the cooling sensation as you place the frozen washcloth anywhere on your skin! It will stay cool longer if you leave it rolled up and slowly unroll the towel as it thaws.
