The refreshing scent of peppermint oil is exhilarating and cleansing at the same time. Peppermint is actually a blend of watermint and spearmint, which grows in Europe and North America. Its scent is wonderfully strong, which you would know from rubbing or using fresh mint in your cooking.
Its antimicrobial properties and exceptionally fresh and strong scent are the reasons why you’ll find it in many toothpaste varieties and mints designed to freshen your breath. If you fancy creating a 100% natural toothpaste, take a look at our very own Primal Cure toothpaste recipe: https://primalcure.com/blogs/body-care/homemade-mint-toothpasteThe antimicrobial properties may also benefit those who suffer from dandruff or a dry scalp, by adding a couple of drops to your shampoo or conditioner.
Many aromatherapists and masseuses use peppermint in a blend with other essential oils to help relieve and revive tired or sore muscles. Just make sure you dilute the peppermint oil to 2% strength, as it’s of strong essential oil quality, and make sure you only use a couple of times a day, as it can irritate the skin.
Peppermint oil is often vaporised so its energising scent can fill the room and create a atmosphere of clarity.
