Peppermint and how it benefits the skin

Peppermint and how it benefits the skin

The peppermint plant is a powerful plant with many benefits, one thing for sure it will have you feeling so fresh and so free! Here at Herb'N Eden, peppermint oil appears in several of our products such as: Activated Charcoal bar and face wash, Vanilla Mint coffee soap bar and scrub, Peppermint and Eucalyptus salve, and the Sore Muscle soak. Peppermint may possibly help with headaches and migraines, sinus congestion, fatigue, and muscle aches. Amongst its many uses and benefits it’s also helpful for the skin, here are 3 reasons why:

1) Cooling & Refreshing

Not only does peppermint smell refreshing it literally feels like it too. Products with peppermint are said to give a tingling sensation when in contact with skin. The fresh feeling of peppermint will have you feeling very clean like a fresh flowing stream. This comes in handy on a hot day when our bodies can use a cool down, especially after an intense workout. Peppermint also soothes inflamed skin with its cooling properties.

2) Astringent & Anti-Septic

Peppermint is a great toner for the skin. It can tighten pores, may combat acne with its antibacterial properties, and can help control oily skin.

3) Anti-Bacterial & Deodorizing

Peppermint regulates unwanted bacteria and neutralizes body odors. The best way to describe how it will have you feeling is fresh inside and out. 

 

Start your day with peppermint to stimulate your mind and prepare yourself to take on the day.
