As a topical ingredient, peppermint is a plant that has been used for health purposes throughout human history. And peppermint still has its uses today as the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health outlines some of the benefits.
- Battling aches and inflammation: Peppermint essential oil is used to soothe inflammation, irritation and itchiness of skin and scalp. It may also help promote wound-healing and can potentially act as a natural remedy to soothe bug bites and hives.
- Reducing odour + aroma therapy: The antibacterial properties in peppermint oil can keep skin clear and smelling fresh by overpowering bacteria and odor.
- Keeping you cool: Skincare containing peppermint essential oil can be used to provide a cooling sensation on the skin to reduce the effects of sun burn or prolonged sun exposure. As well, this cooling effect often leaves skin feeling both fresh and rejuvenated.
