The creators of skin mints have designed a new one to add to their product line. It is called, “Skin Mints: Solid Foundation Patchouli Mint.” This product contains shea butter, olive oil, beeswax, peppermint and patchouli.
Patchouli has a strong earthy scent that is sensual and musky with a lingering spicy scent that improves with age. The patchouli plant is a member of the lavender family and is native to Bengal, India.
Traditionally, patchouli has been used as an aphrodisiac, an insect repellant and to sooth dry skin. It is a multi-tasker in that it does more than just stated above for it is sometimes used as an aid to weight loss. It helps to tight up loose skin after weight loss and to clear the body of cellulite.
