What Makes Peppermint Posh

essential-oil-knowledge.jpg

If you know Posh, you know we love peppermint and use it in a lot of our products. It smells amazing, grows pretty much everywhere, and feels super fresh. But it’s also great for your skin! It’s soothing, cooling, invigorating, and energizing, plus it helps cleanse skin for a more even looking complexion.

It’s Not Easy Being Essential

Grab your favorite peppermint Posh product and read the label. You’ll see that we use peppermint essential oil. But what exactly is an essential oil?

It has to do with how the ingredient is made. In the case of peppermint, the mint leaves are boiled in water and the steam that evaporates in the process is collected and cooled. As the steam cools, it returns to a liquid form comprised of water and oil. The water is separated from the oil, leaving peppermint essential oil.

As you can see, this isn’t really an easy process! This is what makes essential oils more expensive than other types of oil like coconut or olive oil.

Sip While You Soak

Peppermint is great inside and out. And a little mint is always a welcome addition for a refreshing beverage! Amp up the “ahh” and unwind after a long day with this simple cocktail/mocktail:

  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 ounces simple syrup (But wait! I don’t know what simple syrup is! Put equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan, then heat it until it dissolves. Chill, and voila! You have simple syrup.)
  • 3 cucumber wheels
  • 4 to 6 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces adult beverage of choice (gin, vodka, or whiskey all taste great with this recipe, or you can leave out the booze for a mocktail)

Shake all ingredients together and pour into a glass over ice. Top with a splash of soda water and enjoy while using your favorite peppermint products.

Whether you’re sipping it or using it in a pampering routine, peppermint is ESSENTIAL and totally Posh! Add your favorite peppermint products to your routine and tell us what your favorites are on our Facebook Page, Oh My Posh using #PeppermintPosh. Oh, and enjoy that drink! Cheers.
