Benefits of use: Peppermint has a distinct fresh and cool aroma. It is used to refresh, focus, invigorate, help with fatigue, stress, or headache. It works great in massage oils to help relieve the muscles. It makes the skin fresh and is used in aftershaves or bath products. It can also help oily or impure skin by controlling excess oil and give a youthful glow. In hair care products it helps to maintain a healthy scalp and stimulate natural hair growth.
Interesting facts: Peppermint is a hybrid species of mint, a cross between water mint and spearmint. It is a 50 to 90 cm tall perennial plant found in many different types. Peppermint interbreeds easily, so it exists in many varieties. Next to Chamomile, it is the most popular and well-known medicinal plant. In history, already in the 9th century, a monk declared that he would rather count the sparks in the fire than its varieties. It has been known as a spice and medicine for centuries.
