Notes
I prefer using do terra peppermint essential oil because of it's health properties and potency but if you only have extract from the market that will work. Remember not all essential oil brands are safe to ingest. If you do not like stevia you could add 1 extra tablespoon of coconut sugar but you will need to add a tad more coconut milk. Please use organic ingredients when you can.
