Peppermint oil promotes healthy and clear skin. The menthol in peppermint oil cools tired skin, brightens dull skin and helps to control excess oil production. When diluted with a carrier oil, like jojoba, and applied topically, peppermint oil refreshes skin and removes oil. By controlling and eliminating excess oil on the skin, peppermint oil can help offset acne and clogged pores. Thus, the complexion is clear and luminous.
Peppermint essential oil is widely used in folk medicine and finds wide applications in manufacture of soap, cosmetics, and perfume.
