With the aroma of fresh mint tea, Peppermint Essential Oil is a delightful household must-have. Cooling, minty, and invigorating, it’s a versatile oil with a lot to offer your self-care routine.
What is Peppermint Oil?
Peppermint is an herbal oil steam-distilled from peppermint leaves. Its high menthol content gives it that distinct cooling effect, which might explain why it has been a wellness staple for centuries.
How to use Peppermint Oil
Peppermint can be used in diffuser blends and in self-care products. One thing to note, though: don’t put Peppermint in the bath, as it can irritate your sensitive areas.
