Spotlight: Spearmint Essential Oil

We include this amazing essential oil in our charcoal products for very good reasons!

Spearmint essential oil is invigorating, uplifting, and calming; it is frequently used for skin issues as well as helping headaches, digestion, and respiratory function. Spearmint is milder and gentler than peppermint, which explains its popularity with elderly consumers as well as children; it is also great for those with sensitive skin.

In the skincare world, this oil is known for its antibacterial properties and has historically been used to treat infections. (Fighting bacteria is important in warding off breakouts!) Spearmint also disinfects, which makes it a great natural cleanser around the house. Some people suggest that it even reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin discoloration.

Spearmint is also cooling, so grab our Activated Charcoal From Scratch Soap to not only absorb oil, but to also help cool your face in the summer or when you are overheated!

It can also help with inflammation, which is always good news for those who suffer from blemishes. Spearmint also has regenerative properties, which means it helps repair skin faster! It can even tighten your skin, which is great for minimizing the appearance of your pores.

If you have a cold or are feeling under the weather, grab our new Whipped Charcoal Sugar Scrub. It may help you feel more alert, in addition to relieving cold symptoms and providing a boost to your immune system. It can also help clear your airways and make breathing easier.

Additionally, spearmint essential oil can help soothe itchy skin, whether from bug bites or athlete’s foot. Keep both our soap and our scrub on hand all year long to help relieve red, itchy, inflamed skin.

There are so many reasons to give our soap or scrub a try; make sure you let us know which is your favorite!
