Having been coined “the world’s oldest medicine”, peppermint oil, has been known to treat indigestion, headaches, nausea and fever to name a few!
But to simplify these benefits to just grooming, let me show you why we find so many products on the market containing this magical ingredient.
Beyond “the cooling effect”…
- Hair: Peppermint oil is very useful in shampoos to help with the removal of dandruff and lice, and is also widely known as a hair growth stimulant.
- Skin: When applied to the skin, peppermint helps to increase blood flow, thereby improving the look of dull skin. It also helps to lessen red and blotchy skin, and rid the skin of acne.
- Dental: Thanks to peppermint oil’s powerful antiseptic properties, toothpastes and mouthwashes enjoy its help in fighting gum disease and bad breath.
- **De-stressor: Since we tend to stress more… peppermint is able to provide relief from stress, depression and mental exhaustion due to its refreshing nature.
