-Epsom salt helps to disperse to oils in water and prevent from sticking to bottle and spray tube. It can be omitted if needed.
-You can use any of the three cooling essential oils, peppermint, eucalyptus or basil. Or you may want to use a blend for oils. I think peppermint and eucalyptus make a nice combo.
