Summer is on and I know you feel the heat.  There is nothing better than mint, which could lighten your skin, give you good breath and make you feel refreshed. Mint, which is also scientifically known as Mentha, has great medicinal properties.

DIGESTION

The strong smell of mint activates your saliva flow, which in turn activates the digestive enzymes, hence promoting good digestion.  It is also known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

SKIN

When applied to the skin as a mint oil, it acts as anti-bacterial, which reduces acne and scars.  Making a mint juice or smoothie is great to promote more elasticity to the skin and acts a great detoxifier.

RESPIRATORY 

The healing aroma of mint de-congests clogged nostrils, lungs, and throat.  It is also used in the form of balm, which is more effective and eco-friendly compared to other products.

ORAL CARE

It is well known to be used in tooth paste, chewing gums, floss and other breath freshening products.  Its germicidal property helps to maintain a fresh breath and healthy gums.
