This month we’re focusing on all things (re)fresh, so what better time to feature one of the freshest scents of all? You guessed it, mint!
Mint is a calming herb that has been used for thousands of years for its many soothing and energizing properties. It is used as a remedy for a range of conditions including gastrointestinal and inflammation. This ingredient works against harmful microbes and is rich in antioxidants and vitamins (A, C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus to name a few!) Notably in aromatherapy, mint is promoted to help reduce pain, improve focus and mental function, as well as reducing that stress that we’re all too familiar with.
Yes, mint has many medicinal functions and can seriously reduce pesky headaches, muscle and joint pain, and even soothe itching from mosquito bites and other irritations. Did we mention that it’s even great on our skin?! This ingredient is a very useful tool in keeping us healthy and hydrated.
With its refreshingly cooling effect on our skin, mint can brighten our complexion and allow our skin to relax while acting on any of those blemishes that might be present. Its hydrating properties lock in all that good moisture by tightening our pores, which can also prevent blackheads! While boosting blood circulation, this ingredient will ensure that your skin is stimulated, healthy and well nourished.
So, now you’re wondering how you can enjoy all of these amazing benefits that mint has to offer? Don’t worry, Lemongrass House has got you covered. All of these featured products come in various scents to choose from, and you guessed it, mint is one of them!
Drip a few drops into your diffuser to offer stress reduction, aid mental focus and even treat cough and cold symptoms. Apply in small amounts to the skin for problems like headache, muscle aches, joint pain and itching.
Soften those dry winter lips with our lavender & mint lip balm. Its key ingredients like pure essential oils and coconut and avocado oils are rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids that help nourish and condition lips. Shea butter and beeswax act as a barrier to shield moisture in from the effects of harsh weather, with the addition of Manuka honey to sooth and heal.
Spritz this invigorating spray on tired feet and experience its long lasting cooling effect. Wild mint acts as an anti-bacterial ingredient and with extracts of aloe vera and lemon, this spray will give you the boost that you need to bring your feet back to life.
