Why Your Skin Needs Peppermint This Winter

air-purifying essential oils

Winter isn’t just for peppermint mochas and candy canes. During the winter there are so many wonderful uses for peppermint, especially for your skin. Your skin needs them to combat the negative effects of winter on your skin. As winter drags out your skin gets drier and moisturizing becomes a high priority. 

But why peppermint? The use of peppermint oils and extract dates back to the Egyptians. This aromatic herb was used in a variety of ways as it is today, from candles to teas. The soothing effects of peppermint on the digestive system can have the same effect on the skin.
