Peppermint leaves have been used widely since ages to treat oily and greasy skin. Menthol in peppermint reduces the secretion of oil from the sebaceous glands which help to get an oil-free skin naturally.
Peppermint water is helpful in moderation and harmful in excess like most other herbs. If you have hemochromatosis (iron overload disease), tannins in the tea interfere with absorption of iron from food and a bad thing if you suffer iron-deficiency anaemia. Men who are drinking very large amounts of peppermint tea (a gallon a day or so) can experience lowered testosterone levels. On the other hand, women who use peppermint tea as a douche can suffer contact dermatitis.
The peppermint water can be used for tea meant to be drunk; everyday is all your digestive needs. Benefits from peppermint herbal tea are also found in lemon balm, chamomile and star anise teas. You don’t have to boil the herb in the process of creating your tea since all of these herbs work through their essential water.
Peppermint Floral waters are an exceptional way to enjoy the benefits of essential oils in a water soluble product. Floral waters are versatile ingredients, excellent for body sprays, linen sprays, room sprays or added to any of your body care products, such as facial toners, masques, cleansers, lotions etc.
