Why is Peppermint in Foot Lotion?

Why is Peppermint in Foot Lotion?

Many of us have daily routines we like to follow. For instance, every night before my head hits the pillow, I wash and moisturize my face and brush my teeth. After changing into pajamas, I put lotion on my feet. The other night when I was doing this, the scent of peppermint filled the room and I started to wonder why all foot lotions seem to use peppermint. Was it one of those things where one company did it first and other companies followed suit or was there a specific reason? Usually when I think of peppermint, the first thing that comes to mind is not my feet! So I decided to dig a little deeper and find out why peppermint and foot lotion seem to go hand-in-hand....or should I say foot-in-foot!?
