Contrary to popular belief, having a beard isn’t a non-stop battery of dates, makeout sessions, craft beers, woodcutting, and weightlifting. There are very real, and annoying issues that come with having the facial hair of a Greek god. Not the least among the issues that present themselves are dandruff, itching, and irritation. However, your best tool for fighting these annoyances has been right here in front of you this whole time. That’s right, it’s Peppermint Beard Oil.
Why Peppermint Beard Oil Should Be Your Go-To
Aside from the delightful scent & pleasant cooling effect– which is most welcome in the summer months – peppermint essential oil soothes an itchy beard, moisturizes the underlying skin, and keeps dandruff in check. If that wasn’t enough, peppermint oil also helps to absorb excess oils in the beard. Essentially, it will make you immune to the trials and tribulations of beardom.
So why not just bathe in the stuff?
Too Much of A Good Thing
Like everything else that you have ever loved, too much peppermint essential oil can be a bad thing. Above all, your skin type matters when treating it with peppermint, people with sensitive skin types should be cautious when choosing peppermint essential oils. You should always also perform spot testing on their skin to make sure they don’t suffer from a peppermint allergy.
The real key to harnessing the power of the peppermint is simple; find the right dilution. That’s why peppermint beard oil usually features what’s referred to as a carrier oil base as the lion’s share of the formulation. For example, The Alchemist Tea Tree & Peppermint Beard Oil is made up of a blend of vitamin E-rich Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond oil. Likewise, its complimenting peppermint beard shampoo is made of coconut and other oils as a base. How important is dilution? We can’t exactly tell you how much of the stuff goes in our products, but you’d be shocked to find just how small of an amount is necessary to get the desired the effects in a beard oil & shampoo formulation.
