Minty 🌱 Summer Days! Staying cool with peppermint!

Cascadia Peppermint Rollon body perfume
A customer who bought 4 bulk bars of our peppermint and tea tree vegan soap inspired us to put out a little informative blog on the many benefits of peppermint. Plus, who wouldn't want something minty for these increasingly hot summer days? While we can't make you a refreshing cocktail (our products are alcohol free ;), there are definitely a few things in our collection that could help you stay cool in these hot days and harvest all the benefits of peppermint for our skin and mind. 
  1. Soothing and Cooling: Peppermint has a cooling effect on the skin, which can help soothe and calm irritated or inflamed skin. Applying peppermint-infused products or peppermint oil topically may provide relief from itchiness, redness, and minor skin irritations.

  2. Antimicrobial Properties: Peppermint contains compounds like menthol and limonene, which possess antimicrobial properties. These properties can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi on the skin, making it useful for addressing acne and certain skin infections.

  3. Acne Treatment: The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of peppermint can be helpful in treating acne. It may reduce redness and swelling associated with acne breakouts and prevent the proliferation of acne-causing bacteria.

  4. Oil Control: Peppermint can help regulate the production of sebum, the skin's natural oil. By controlling excess oil production, peppermint may assist in reducing the occurrence of clogged pores and breakouts.

  5. Exfoliation: The menthol in peppermint acts as a natural exfoliant, helping to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. This exfoliating effect can promote a smoother and more radiant complexion.

  6. Toning Properties: Peppermint has astringent properties that can help tone and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of enlarged pores and giving the skin a firmer look.

  7. Refreshing and Revitalizing: The invigorating scent of peppermint can provide a refreshing and revitalizing experience during skincare routines. It can uplift the senses and provide a sense of rejuvenation. (Our pure peppermint essential oil and peppermint roll on bottle could) 

  8. Anti-Itch Remedy: Peppermint's cooling sensation can be particularly beneficial for soothing itchy skin caused by insect bites, allergies, or dryness.

Aand many more benefits beyond skincare for you to discover!
