Peppermint (Mentha Piperita) is a fast growing perennial herb with green stems and leaves and small white flowers. It has a fresh, minty scent which is long-lasting. Commonly used in cooking, and for toothpaste, it also has many skin and hair benefits.
Peppermint is great for cooling the skin, which is why we use it in our Sundown shower gel, designed to be used after a day in the sun. It is also naturally deodorising and antiseptic, the perfect ingredient for our Barefoot Rescue range. It leaves a lovely, tingly sensation on the lips in some of our lip balms. This tingly sensation is also stimulating for the scalp, helping your hair to grow thicker and fuller.
Ideal for fighting mental fatigue, it is highly stimulating and aids concentration. Use this oil for those last few hours of the working day to keep you focused!
