Peppermint oil is a staple oil in my beauty regimen and, as you can see, used in pretty much all of the SoVAiN products due to its amazing benefits for the hair, scalp, and body. 

Scalp Health: Peppermint oil is antiseptic in nature, and when massaged on the scalp, it helps to remove dandruff and lice in addition to its usual cooling effect. Peppermint oil balances the pH levels in your scalp and can also normalize sebum production and protect against oily skin.

Hair Growth: Because of its ability to relax blood vessels and stimulate blood flow to hair follicles, peppermint oil has also been used to stimulate hair growth. 

Overall Health: Peppermint oil is also used for relief from headaches. Inhaling a few drops of peppermint oil will remove a nagging headache. I love that the peppermint oil scent provides a tingling sensation and lingers in your it can fight headaches all day. It also acts as a stressbuster.

Have you had success with peppermint oil? What do you think of its benefits?

Happy hair growing! Stay VAiN!

I love peppermint oil in shampoo. Gives you a clean feeling with the tingling!

Used peppermint oil for the first time today. It was a great combination with the prewash technique.
