Emotional & spiritual benefits
Peppermint has a bright and lively scent that refreshes and energises the mind. It is stimulating and uplifting and aids concentration, bringing clarity and focus. Its sharp aroma is great for waking up the brain, clearing the head and making space for a productive day.

Cosmetic benefits
With its unique cooling benefits, Peppermint helps to relieve irritation and calm inflamed skin. It is indicated for all skin types, but more frequently used in body products than facial ones. It can be used to cleanse the hair, deodorise feet and provide a cooling action in after-sun formulations. It provides a mild tingle to the skin which is awakening and revitalising.

Formulation types
Peppermint is used in a wide range of skincare products including antibacterial foot care products, after-sun preparations, body creams and washes, haircare products, soaps, lip balms, toners, functional essential oil blends and more.

% Use in formulation
See our Essential Oil Safety Guide for more information.

Peppermint can be sensitising to some, so should be used in low percentages.
