PEPPERMINT OIL FOR A SUMMER STATE OF MIND • Ahhhh, summer. What’s not to love about an entire season that evokes the carefree style and spirit of vacation? Maybe the heat? Well we have a solution! PEPPERMINT OIL: for a topical chill ✨
When you start to feel overheated - dabbing peppermint oil on your inner wrists, earlobes and back of my neck will keep you cool.
As it turns out, the physical sensation of cooling is a neurological trick. The menthol in peppermint doesn’t actually lower your body temperature; instead, it blocks a current along the nerves that detect temperature and triggers cold-sensitive receptors in the skin. As for the peppermint aroma effect on the mind - research suggests the aroma does, in fact, enhance alertness and memory.
Common-sense rules apply: Avoid the eyes and face, don’t put it on broken skin, and dilute with a carrier oil like jojoba if you’re particularly sensitive. Enjoy the chill 🌤
