While Winter months roar in opportunities to relax, hibernate in our bubbles, and ease the mind, cold weather can be frivolous on the body, wreak havoc to the soul, and be downright unfavorable to good living. Tis’ the season for slush-puddles, wet-toes, and dry skin. Betting on your location, chances are you’ll have a solid two more months of this climate, with no telling how your day-to-day essentials will hold up to the season’s madness.
Relevant enough, I’ve come across a fascinating bucket of Winter products that’ve truffled me through the first two weeks of January with ease. A mix of footwear, grooming products and stylishly warm essentials that’ll certainly revive, promote you to thrive, and help us all survive the remainder of this season.

3.) Cayenne & Thyme, Peppermint Tea Tree Soap
Cayenne & Thyme came to life after Founder Ciara Alphonse’s rare skin diagnosis in the Fall of 2016. Unimpressed by the negative effects of many store bought products on her skin, she immersed herself in the world of natural skin care and became committed to developing her own natural options. As she credits her grandmother's ole English proverbs, "cleanliness is next to godliness.” She’s entrusted simple kitchen cabinet ingredients as the base for her soothing, naturally healing bath and body products. “Cayenne & Thyme has not only become a daily reminder of my grandmother's wisdom, it has transformed how I incorporate everyday natural elements into self care.” A Cayenne & Thyme favorite is the Peppermint Tea Tree, which is like Winter’s spa day in a bar of soap.
