These two Essential oils work so beautifully with each other we’ve struggled to add one without the other within our skin and haircare products. They are both highly versatile, and have been a part of both ancient and modern medicinal practices, culinary art, as well as cosmetic industry since time began.
Tea Tree is renowned for it’s antibacterial and antifungal properties whilst Peppermint is better known for it’s calming, soothing effects, courtesy of it’s menthol properties. Between them they can boast of containing, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, magnesium, calcium, Vitamins A and C, minerals, potassium, manganese and copper!
Whether you have oily or dry skin/scalp, both oils are going to work for you! Both have astringent properties to help to normalize the sebum secretion and cool the skin. Therefore your scalp and hair won’t feel greasy with regular application of these oils. Plus, conversely, the PH balance formula in both oils is beneficial for the opposite kind of skin, hair and scalp problems too! Their moisturising properties help in treating dry skin, scalp and dandruff so that you get beautiful hair and problem-free skin and scalp. They heal the skin and prevent itching too.
Tea tree oil can be used on the face to treat skin conditions such as spots, pimples, blemishes, dryness, infections and other medical conditions such as dandruff and dry scalp. Whilst the peppermint swoops in and calms, soothes and helps heal and then refresh the skin.
Using both oils on your hair will help it to stay healthy and moisturised, promoting optimal growth. The anti-inflammatory effect they offer helps to soothe and relieve painful and irritated skin, and are both capable of reducing redness and swelling. Hence why we use them both in our Natural Clear Skin Mask and our Natural Deodorant. Their anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial combination help to prevent and reduce acne scars, prevent clogging of pores and outbreak of acne itself thus leaving you with smooth, clear refreshed skin.
Find them both also in our Detangling Gloss, our Body Butter, Soothing Salve, Shikakai and Rich Black Pod Shampoo, Raw Honey,Mango & Amla Conditioner and many many more!
What a lovely couple!
Go Well & Enjoy x
