Peppermint Essential Oil
Due to its historical uses peppermint oil has often times been dubbed the world's oldest medicine. Peppermint oil is very useful for haircare and because of its cleansing action and its ability to promote normal flow of sebum, making it ideal for people with dry scalp. Other haircare benefits include:
- improves hair growth
- increases blood circulation to the scalp
- relieves dry scalp
- promotes shiny hair
- alleviates dandruff
- moisturizes scalp
- increases thickness of hair
- cools the scalp
- normalizes sebum creation
Peppermint oil has a sharp, sweet penetrating mint scent with a high menthol content and blends well with other aromas particularly basil, bergamot, cajeput, cedarwood, eucalyptus, lemon, lime, mandarin, marjoram, niaouli, pine, rosemary, spearmint and thyme.
Note: Do not use without diluting as indicated in the directions.
Because of the volatile nature of essential oils, they should always be mixed with a carrier oil such as jojoba, castor, olive, grapeseed, sesame, coconut, or sweet almond to name a few. They should be mixed at a ratio of approximately 1 - 2% dilution, which equates to 5-10 drops per 30 ml. Essential oils can be mixed with your favourite carrier oil, or conditioner, shampoo, or styling product to take advantage of their numerous benefits.
Caution: Do not apply directly to the skin. If pregnant, suffering from medical conditions or taking any medication, consult a Health Care Professional. Keep in a cool place away from light and heat. Keep out of reach of children. May irritate skin. Avoid contact with eyes.
