Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil

Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil

Mentha Piperita Oil, commonly known as Peppermint Oil, is an ingredient in natural skincare that is critical for wound

healing.  Extracted from the fresh leaves of the Peppermint plant, this oil is best known for its sharp, fresh minty

fragrance; menthol and menthone are the key chemical components, which lend to the cooling feeling often

accompanied by its use.  Peppermint Oil helps control oil production by gently drying the skin, helping prevent the development of issues such as acne.  Further, its cooling properties help soothe and cool dry, itchy skin.
