Lemon Balm and Green Tea Cooling Mist


I found this refreshing cooling mist from Mountain Rose Herbs.  I fashioned this to sooth my best friend's sunburn.  You can find everything you need for this recipe from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Lemon Balm & Green Tea Cooling Mist
(from Mountain Rose Herbs)

Makes 8 ounces

6 ounces water
4 ounces Lemon Balm Hydrosol
2 tablespoons dried Peppermint Leaf
1 teaspoon Green Tea Leaves

Make an infusion by pouring boiling water over the Peppermint and Green tea leaves, cover, and allow to sit for 2 to 4 hours.  Once cool, strain the herbs and pour into a spray bottle, add lemon Balm Hydrosol, and spritz directly on the sunburn as often as desired.  Use within 1 to 2 days or store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
