Get To Know Our Peppermint Products
Breathe in our energizing Peppermint products, an electrifyingly crisp aroma created from organic peppermint to offer you so many more whole body benefits than scent alone.
Peppermint, also known as Mentha piperita, is a well known plant and essential oil that has been used in herbal medicine and native traditions since as far back as ancient Egyptian times and is still very popular today. It arrives at your senses bold, confident and ready to refresh – offering icy cool notes complimented with a subtly sweet base. Our Peppermint products’ tingly fresh and peppy personality will awaken your body and balance your mind, making you feel alive, revived and ready to take on the day with a smile. Peppermint is a versatile perennial herb that is cherished as a multi-purpose plant whose extracts are used across many different industries from food to health care. The name “mint” originally comes from a nymph named Minthe in Greek mythology. According to legend, the mischievous Minthe was turned into a mint plant by Persephone after having an affair with her husband, Hades. Peppermint is a naturally occurring hybrid of Watermint and Spearmint, one of hundreds of species of mint around the world. We might know Peppermint for the flavor of toothpaste or the taste of those addictive striped candies, but Peppermint also boasts a full resume of healing benefits too.
Our reviving Peppermint products keep you feeling fantastically fresh with the pure plant extracts of this minty classic.

Why We Use Essential Oils To Create Our Peppermint Products
We utilize nature’s apothecary to create our aromas, choosing only organic and pure essential oils and botanicals over synthetic fragrances. Synthetic fragrances are one of the top toxic body care ingredients to avoid. Ambiguous terms, such as perfume, fragrance or parfum, are allowed to contain up to 200 undisclosed sub-ingredients, potentially hiding dangerous and harsh chemicals that can cause negative side effects and long term health issues. On top of this, essential oils allow you to meet your own unique body care goals by offering so many acute holistic benefits.
Our Peppermint products contain a winning combination of natural, plant-powered benefits. The importance of the connection between plants and their whole body benefits is simple. Plant-based body care is rich in antioxidants which work to recover and strengthen your skin cells by combating free radicals (unstable atoms that can negatively impact cells, causing disease and progressing aging). The vitamins, nutrients, essential fats and acids also play an important role by encouraging cell repair, a neutral PH balance and skin elasticity.
