Peppermint doesn’t mix with Sauna

Erin ordered some peppermint extract for use in foot baths.  We often put eucalyptus in the water we have on the sauna stove, and thought that we’d give the peppermint a try.  Its effervescent qualities are quite effective.  It really clears out your sinuses, but it does a number on your eyes.  Not painful, but not comfortable either.  We didn’t have to abandon the sauna, but I don’t think we’ll be adding this to our sauna routine anytime soon.  I think its back to the eucalyptus for now.
