How to make your own peppermint yoni/shower gel

This is a very simple DIY project that anyone can create. Before I get into this recipe let me tell you a little about myself and how I started formulating cosmetics. I am a mother of 7 daughters so as you can imagine we use a lot of body cosmetics. So I started years ago making simple projects such as the traditional body butters and body scrubs. I began it get intrigued with making natural skincare products. I have worked with many cosmetic scientists and a few mentors and then went on to study study cosmetic science. Fast forwarding to today. I have my own skincare business named after my seven daughters Pleiades Pure & Natural Skincare (after greek mythology 'Pleiades' meaning 7 sisters) as well as The Formulating Mentor. I love what I do and now I run a business doing what I love. My absolute passion is showing people how to make their own cosmetics!
