The weather is getting colder, the holidays are right around the corner, and there is no better way to soothe those cracked lips than with peppermint essential oil.
Seriously when my skin starts to get dry and cracked, the first essential oil I grab is peppermint.
This oil is derived from leaves of the Mentha Pipertita plant.
When mixed in lotions, scrubs, or lip balms it gives your skin a cooling sensation that makes you feel calm, soft, and serene. This is why you often see peppermint essential oil added to many lip balms out there.
Even better, they are great gifts to handmake and give out. Believe me, if you gift these to family and friends they will love you forever!
My husband still asks me to make peppermint lip balm for him whenever his lips are getting dry. We love them SO much that I scoured the internet for amazing recipes and decided to put it all in one place for you.
