I feel HOT during summers. LOL, well that's a given but the emphasis is on HOT. It has something to do with my internal body composition - I feel way too hotter than most people. I am the opposite of vampires ( sorry I just saw The New Moon trailer and I just had to say it). I am constantly washing my feet with cool water when at home so my body feels just a bit cooler.

That should tell you enough about why I am excited over a blue cooling spray for my feet. The moment I saw the Peppermint Cooling Spray from The Body Shop ($10) I knew it was made for me. The cooling menthol and peppermint oils provide much needed relief to my burning toes. It also has Castor Oil, the only other cooling oil I know of ! My mom always said that if I kept my head and feet cool, the rest of the body's temperature gets automatically readjusted. I don't know the science behind this but the refreshing effect of the menthol feels glorious during theses never ending hot summer months.

Do you know where they sell menthol / peppermint oils ? I am thinking of making this spray myself. But I need to find out the secret behind the instant drying and absence of grease despite the oils. Once I get my hands on that, I'm gonna start whipping up stuff in my kitchen. Who knows I might be the next Shehnaz Hussain or Lisa Price. Now tell me where can I find the oils ?

Oh how I love this song !

Your mom is right. Back when my chruch was meeting in a school building the AC broke. So my mom told me to take off my shoes. My bare feet on the floor (which was cooler than the building)made my whole body cool. Also in the winter they always tell people to wear a hat because that will make your whole body warmer.

Thanks for the review.

You can get peppermint oil from any health food store.

There are a few popular toiletry/soapmaking suppliers that I know about.

-Bramble Berry
-The Chemistry Store
-From Nature With Love( they have menthol crystals)
