  1. This sounds wonderful. Goodman and our youngest love a good peppermint flavor so I'll be trying your method for making the extract. The scent of the peppermint soap I made a few weeks ago greets us every time we step into the kitchen. oh. my. We love it. :)

  7. Thanks for sharing this great blog post about how to make peppermint extract. I hope I can get to that step. I do have peppermint growing in a pot in my garden. I bought a seedling, but it just isn't doing that well. Thought peppermint spreads very easily, but here in AZ maybe it's just too hot? Any tips?

    1. It will need lots of water in that AZ heat :) But I am sure you already knew that! :) Happy herb-growing Nancy!
