Simple Essential Oil Mints
¼ Gum Paste (premixed)
5-10 drops Essential Oils of choice
Knead gum paste with fingers until softened and more pliable. Roll gum paste into a ball and poke a hole in center of paste to add your essential oils. Add your preferred oil drop blends into the center and knead UNTIL THOROUGHLY MIXED IN.
Roll flat with rolling pin. (your helper can do the next several steps for you ;)
Use a straw to punch out small circles or slice lengthwise about ½ inch strips. Then cut the opposite way creating little squares. Or cut any shapes out desired with tiny pattern cutters. I prefer rounder patterns to avoid some of the sharp edges.
You can sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top if preferred. I usually choose not to add it to mine. Allow to sit out for several days to harden.
They will have a chewier consistency at first, but the longer they sit they harden more.
Eat, Share, Enjoy!
