Keep Your Cool!

Yesterday we talked about some of the perks of summer, like barbecue, picnics, and iced tea. But how do you keep your cool when the temperature outside is rising? The Kansas City Etsy Street Team has a few suggestions for must-have summer coolers.

Peppermint essential oil is a great cooler and soother, and marigolds are a definite sign of summer. Soapmania has combined the two to create a fabulous cooling soap perfect for the summer months. This one is also a great morning wake up soap. If you are a peppermint purist, Soapmania has you covered too, with their straight peppermint soap. If you mention KCEtsy in the "comments to seller" section during purchase, you will even receive free shipping from Soapmania!

Bella Veda Soap has your summer hair care covered with their natural Peppermint Silk Shampoo and Conditioner. This sulfate and paraben-free shampoo is a pleasure to use. Bella Veda uses peppermint, lavender and clove essential oils to create an invigorating shower experience and lovely, lightly-scented locks.

You want to keep your summer lips soft and kissable, but the sun, wind, and chlorinated pool water have taken their tole. No problem! Bella Veda has a wide selection of amazing lip balms that are all natural. We think the Lime and the Chocolate Mint sound especially yummy!

So the next time you are looking for summer skincare solutions, skip the drugstore and head straight to the bath and body sellers of the Kansas City Etsy Street Team! Not only will you be supporting local handcrafters, but you will be keeping your family safe from the harsh chemicals that many of the store brands contain. Your skin and hair will thank you for it!
