Benefits of Peppermint Oil
Happy Holidays, Essential Elite! This time of year brings its own version of scents, sights, and scenery. One of the prominent smells that abound during this time of year is peppermint. Candy canes, peppermint bark chocolate, peppermint candles…the list goes on and on. It’s one of the main scents that heralds the holiday season.
Peppermint oil not only smells good; it offers fantastic benefits for your hair and skin. Below are some advantages to using peppermint oil for your skin and hair:
Promotes Hair Growth: This oil has been suggested to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. Use the oil along with a carrier oil, like coconut oil or jojoba oil, as a moisturizer or scalp massage.
Controls Dandruff: Peppermint Oil has antimicrobial properties that can assist in controlling the growth of dandruff-causing bacteria on the scalp. Adding a few drops to your shampoo may contribute to a healthier scalp.
Soothes Irritation: The oil also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe an irritated scalp or skin. It may be helpful with skin ailments, like psoriasis or eczema.
Cooling Sensation: The menthol in Peppermint Oil has a cooling factor, which can refresh the skin. It can be particularly soothing in hot weather or after sun exposure.
Lip Balm Ingredient: You can even use Peppermint Oil as a great ingredient in lip balm. Using it helps keep lips moisturized and can soothe chapped lips.
It’s important to dilute the oil when using it, since Peppermint Oil is a strong essential oil by itself. Make sure you don’t have an adverse reaction to the oil by applying a tiny amount to a small area of your skin, if you haven’t used it before. And as always, if you have any specific hair or skin concerns, it’s always advisable to speak to a dermatologist or healthcare professional for personalized advice for your situation.
Remember that Peppermint Oil is a great essential oil, especially for this time of year. The scent is refreshing, and it brings out a holiday state of mind during this time. And from D’Scent Essentials, we wish you a very Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year!!! 🌿
