There’s something about Christmastime that brings out my love for the smell (and taste!) of peppermint. I love peppermint tea, peppermint lattes, peppermint milkshakes (hello, yum!!) and now peppermint lotion. Peppermint oil is so refreshing and has such a clean scent. It’s relaxing and is meant to make you feel more focused (slap some on first thing in the morning before work!).
I’ve been using the new Aromatherapy Distillations by Crabtree & Evelyn body lotion before bedtime. Ahhhh….While the scent is a little strong (it’s a blend of eucalyptus, lime, peppermint, grapefruit, mandarin and rosemary), it’s so soothing (with cucumber and lemongrass extracts) and actually helped me zonk out after a long day pretty quickly. It made my skin feel nice and smooth and, most of all, refreshed. It feels cool at first (it is made of 100% pure essential oils, after all) and then works into the skin to produce a nice soothing feeling. It almost feels like you’ve just stepped out of the shower. Use after you actually do get out of the shower and let the refreshing extracts go to work!
