For the Love of Mint

Mint is one of, if not my favorite, scents. I love mint for lots of reasons; it's cooling, refreshing, calming & soothing. So I figured I would clue everyone in on a few of my must-have mint products that I try to always keep in my cabinets.

Mint also has some great health benefits on top of it's great aromatherapy properties, so I'm going to give you a few examples to play around with.

• It soothes the digestive tract, eliminates toxins from the body & helps to fight nausea.
• Reduces growth of bacteria & fungus, whitens teeth & combats bad breath.
• Can help to heal insect stings & bites, as well as relieve aches & pains.
• May prevent colon, skin & lung cancers. May also reverse asthma.

One last thing I must mention; mint is an excellent mosquito repellent!! How handy is that? You can stay cool & refreshed, smell good AND keep the bugs away while doing it! Living in the Deep South (Southern Mississippi!), this is great news for me!!
