– Peppermint or your favourite essential oil.
Your favourite essential oil can be placed into a diffuser or thrown into the shower for a fresh zip of aroma that can serve different purposes. Peppermint can perk you up while other aromas such as sandalwood can relax and calm. Eucalyptus can clear up respiratory issues and lavender can calm you, as well. Find one you like and use it for a little freshness in the middle of winter.
