Peppermint oil can hydrate burnt skin and relieve the pain from sunburns. It can also be used to help prevent sunburn. Research has found that peppermint oil has a very high SPF (sun protection factor) value, and so it is perfect for protecting your lips and skin.
Our peppermint lip balm also has the added benefit of helping to unclog your sinuses if you suffer from allergies.
Not only is peppermint oil one of the oldest European herbs used for medicinal purposes, other historical accounts date its use to ancient Japanese and Chinese folk medicine.
It’s also mentioned in Greek mythology when the nymph Mentha (or Minthe) was transformed into a sweet-smelling herb by Pluto, who had fallen in love with her and wanted people to appreciate her for years to come.
