Peppermint oil is one of those universal essential oils good for a plethora of ailments.
But did you know it's also beneficial for your head?
Peppermint oil is a great natural stimulant for hair growth.
One study found that when used on mice, peppermint oil increased the number of hair follicles, the follicle depth and overall hair growth.
It can also calm inflammation and increase hair thickness.
And while anyone can use it, it's usually best for those who have oily scalps.
In fact, it's great for oily hair because it helps balance the pH of the scalp, which can regulate oil production.
How to use it:
The best way to use peppermint oil is to mix it with a carrier oil like jojoba or coconut oil - avoid applying it directly onto the skin without first diluting.
Peppermint oil is not ideal for dry or brittle hair or dry scalp.
EverEscents Organic Haircare's Peppermint and Spearmint Shampoo and Conditioner duo is designed with peppermint oil to stimulate the scalp for a refreshing and deep clean. A great option if you'd rather stay away from a more concentrated version of the essential oil.
