A Few of My Favorite *Minty* Things!

The Month of Mint continues!  


by Jaelyn Penner

Fun Fact:  Did you know that (according to the all-knowing online sage Wikipedia), peppermint has been found to enhance memory?  As a sleep-deprived mother of a toddler, I can definitely appreciate that!

Today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite (and easy-to-find) mint products.  These are really staples in my house.   I don't use them every day, but when I need them, I NEED them, you know?  Let me know what you think - I have a feeling you are going to love them as much as I do!
Beverage:  Minty Green Tea

 In addition to my Dark Chocolate Peppermint Mocha, my other favorite minty beverage is a mint green tea.  At any Starbucks, you can get the Tazo brand "Refresh" tea, that is nicely minty.  Even better, brew one bag of that with one bag of Tazo's "Zen" green tea, and you have a yummy, calorie-free, caffeinated beverage that will make you feel warm AND refreshed!

Pick-Me-Up:  Origins "Peace of Mind"

 This is the ultimate stocking stuffer for women - only $12, it can fit in your purse (or pocket, if your pants are roomy!) and provides instant relaxation and focus.  Nothing better to have at the office!  You just rub a bit on your fingers, inhale the aroma, then rub into your temples, behind your ears, and the back of your neck.  Tingly and cool - Instant rejuvenation!

Shower Indulgence:  Eucalytpus Spearmint Sugar Scrub

This shower must-have is great for waking up in the morning OR winding down after a hard day.  The Eucalytpus and Spearmint combination helps to calm and clear my mind, and the oil/sugar scrub is an  absolutely luxurious way to exfoliate and moisturize.  Bonus:  this product is widely available at nationwide Bath and Body Works stores.  Hint:  this line of products rarely goes on sale, so snatch it up when it does!  Current regular price is $16. 

What are your favorite mint products?  I would love to hear from you!
