Latest Obsession: Peppermint

Peppermint is a powerful plant.

Native to Europe, Peppermint holds the prestigious title of the world’s oldest medicine. It is one of the few herbs and essential oils to have been studied and scientifically proven to have numerous health benefits.

If I’m honest, our Peppermint products were not something I immediately gushed over, but when I started using them I was hooked!  Now I find myself turning to our peppermint products over any others lately.

Here are the peppermint products I have been using the most:

Peppermint Essential Oil

Pure Haven Peppermint Essential Oil is USDA certified organic.  Peppermint Essential Oil has the ability to aid in:

  • Stomach soothing
  • Digestion support
  • Cooling
  • Immune system support
  • Respiratory support
  • Focus, energy, and concentration
  • Muscle soothing

I have been putting a few drops in rollerballs for energy and focus.  It is also the main essential oil in our Energized rollerball in our Essential Oils Set.

Peppermint Dream Cream

Pure Haven Essentials announced Peppermint Dream Cream last month.  I’ll admit, I was a little hesitant to try it.  I guess I was just too attached to the Lavender Dream Cream.  I tried it for the first time after long afternoon coaching at a chilly and windy track meet.  I had terrible windburn!  I pulled out the Peppermint Dream Cream and put it on my face.  I instantly felt the cooling sensation working on my skin.  Overnight the redness had cleared and my skin was hydrated.  I consider this a summer essential!  Can you imagine how this will feel on a sunburn?

Peppermint Bar Soap

This is also coming up to the camp at the beach with us this summer!  This will be absolutely glorious to use in the shower after a beach day!
