Let me know if you have any other creative ideas for mint
- I just harvested a gigantic bunch of it and have it drying at present.


Hi, Cori--if you like the smell of it enough to steep yourself in it, try wrapping it in cheese cloth or something similar and adding it to a bath. You could hang it from the faucet so the water runs over it while the tub is filling. If you are crafty, you could sew up little muslin bags filled with it & decorated for the same purpose or make little sachets for your drawers. It is also refreshing as a hair rinse...just make a tea, then let it cool & strain. You could also mix it with other herbs like chammomile or rosemary. Also, make potpourri with it.
