The Many Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil

The Many Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil

One of the most beloved essential oils is Peppermint (Mentha Piperita). It has so many benefits to mind, body & soul that it's no wonder it is so revered in the aromatherapy community. It is especially popular as we head into the holiday season. Cafes offer peppermint coffee drinks, you'll find recipes for peppermint bark, and candy canes have long been associated with this glorious time of year.

 

Pure peppermint frost candy cane holiday body cream from Seed
We are pleased to announce two brand new limited edition Body Creams here at Seed, Luxe Lemon Ginger and Peppermint Frost. Today, we're sharing Peppermint Frost with you. With its 100% pure essential oil-derived aroma of invigorating good cheer, this will be a hit for everyone on your gift-giving list!

What are the benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil?

Distilled from peppermint leaves, flowers, and buds, 100% pure peppermint essential oil (Mentha Piperita) features a minty, refreshing aroma. 
  • Naturally refreshing, peppermint is one of the more uplifting essential oils.
  • There is natural menthol in peppermint to provide skin with cooling sensation.
  • Peppermint is noted for its ability to bring about clarity. In fact, there was a 2008 study in the International Journal of Neuroscience with some really impressing results concerning peppermint. The study showed that peppermint increases mental alertness and can enhance memory.
  • Do you have a headache? Researchers at Germany's University of Kiel studied a group of headache sufferers and determined that peppermint can help alleviate headache symptoms. Similar results were indicated in an article published in American Family Medicine.

Stock up and get ready to stuff stockings with Peppermint Lip Oil! Kids love mint, too, and can have a lip oil of their own with our Magical Mint Lip Oil.

Our new Soft Balm also comes in pure Peppermint. I especially recommend the peppermint balm used as a foot care moisturizer and skin softener!

How to protect your skin from the harsh winter elements
How to protect your skin from the harsh winter elements

Did you know that this cold, dry winter weather can have a major impact on your skin care routine? Our friends near the Great Lakes are seeing significant amounts of snowfall. My friend Lauren in West Seneca, New York has more than five FEET of snow. Let’s take a look at the low humidity and frigid temperatures affect your skin.

Itchiness and a tight feeling are common skin issues related to dry air, but there are some skin care tips you can use to help tackle the problem.

  • Be gentle on your skin. When you dry off after bathing, be sure to pat your skin dry. Don’t rub.
  • Always follow your shower or bath with a rich cream layered over body oil.
  • Look for cream formulations instead of lotions and fluids for facial hydration.
  • Avoid ingredients such as alcohol and sulfates, which will cause more dryness.
