The Benefits of Peppermint in Organic Skin Care Products

In 2022 I experienced a set back with my hair following a change in medication.  I immediately addressed my concern with my physician and recommitted to a routine hair care regimen which includes the application of the Ca’Mora Organic Nurturing Hair Growth Oil.  This hair growth oil contains peppermint oil which offers amazing skin and hair benefits.

Peppermint oil has often been referred to as “the world’s oldest medicine.”  The scientific name for peppermint oil is Mentha piperita and is a cross between watermint and spearmint and is native to Europe and North America.  This wonderful oil contains multiple minerals and nutrients including manganese, iron, magnesium, calcium, folate, potassium, and copper.  The oil is also a great source of vitamins A and C as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.  The following discusses the skin and hair benefits of peppermint oil.

Skin and Hair Benefits

Reducing Pain

One benefit of peppermint oi is the presence of calcium antagonism.  This feature helps remove or reduce pain to the area applied.  When the body sustains a wound, the natural immune response is to send cells and tissue to the site for repair.  This process results in swelling and inflammation.  Applying peppermint oil to a wound will aide in the reduction of swelling and inflammation.


Peppermint oil is the host of many anti-inflammatory components.  The anti-inflammatory nature of peppermint oil will help relieve topical inflammation such as a rash.  While improving the rash, there could be additional opportunities to reduce pain by addressing the affected rash area.  Your skin will love the cooling sensation!


Peppermint oil has antimicrobial features.  The antimicrobial impact is a reduction in bacteria on the surface of the skin interrupting their ability to settle and replicate.  This aides in naturally treating the skin from pimple causing bacteria.


Many people are searching for products which help stimulate hair growth.  Products made with peppermint oil offer antiseptic and regenerative properties which stimulate hair growth in the follicle.  Peppermint oil also stimulates blood circulation which can help induce hair growth and nail growth via the cuticle.

In addition to these wonderful skin and hair benefits, peppermint oil is reported to be used for a variety of other health promoting ways.  Although the focus of this article is to explore the benefits of peppermint oil for the skin other examples include:

  • Treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Reducing stress
  • Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections
  • Boots immunity
  • PCOS
  • Colic
  • Headaches
  • Appetite suppressant
  • Energy boost


You can find peppermint oil in shampoo, bug repellant, nail care, teething, sunburn, and hair care products such as the Ca'Mora Nurturing Hair Growth Oil.  In the Ca'Mora lineup, mint leaves are also infused into both the hair growth oil and the organic Eucalyptus and Mint body oil Ca'Mora Eucalyptus Mint Body Oil .  Each of these products offer amazing skin and hair health benefits.  Shop the Ca’Mora line of organic and all natural products anytime at Ca'Mora Personal Care Products or in-person at HER Company on 153rd and Weir.
