One of Skinny & Co.’s favorite things about our products is that so many have alternate uses! While all were specifically designed with a purpose (or purposes in mind), there are some additional benefits each offers. Today, we’ll explain how to make the most out of Skinny & Co.’s Peppermint Oil Pulling Coconut Oil.
Bug repellent and relief
As Skinny & Co.’s Peppermint Oil Pulling Coconut Oil is made from the purest coconut oil and therapeutic-grade peppermint essential oil, it offers the benefits of each wonderful ingredient.
Research shows that peppermint essential oil offers repellent power when applied to exposed body parts and is capable of killing mosquitoes, ants, fleas, beedles, spiders, flies, and even mice. The reason it works as a repellent? While humans find the smell of peppermint pleasant, many insects and mice find it offensive.
In addition to the peppermint essential oil power packed into Peppermint Oil Pulling Coconut Oil are the benefits coconut offers when it comes to bug bites. When applied to bug bites, it forms a thin protective layer to the skin that helps prevent bacteria and germs from entering into the body at the site of the bug bite. At the same time, the anti-inflammatory properties of coconut oil help provide relief from itchiness.
Simply apply a thin layer of Peppermint Oil Pulling Coconut Oil to exposed skin to receive the but repellent and relief benefits.
Hair conditioner for thicker hair
According to a study done on mice, peppermint essential oils hold a lot of promise when it comes to hair growth. Researchers in the study noticed that the mice’s hair grew faster and thicker and that blood flow to undernourished hair follicles increased. It’s possible (and believed) that the same results are likely to occur with human hair.
That being said, coconut oil also offers benefits to hair. Lauric acid found in coconut oil can actually counteract the protein (your hair’s main component) loss that results from chemical processes such as dyeing and highlighting. In fact, one study done on hair using plant-derived oils found that coconut oil was the only oil capable of reducing protein loss for both damaged and healthy hair when used before and after washing.
One way to achieve the benefits of peppermint essential oil and coconut oil by using Skinny & Co.’s Peppermint Oil Pulling Coconut Oil is to use it as a conditioner. Use it just as you would any other conditioner you keep in the shower or mix a small amount in with your usual conditioner.
Healing cuts and scrapes
If you find yourself with cuts and scrapes from time to time, you could benefit from Skinny & Co.’s Peppermint Oil Pulling Coconut Oil. The reason? Peppermint essential oil found in it has analgesic properties that alleviate pain and a high menthol content that numbs pain and provides cooling relief to cuts and scrapes. Additionally, peppermint essential oil has antimicrobial properties that help protect cuts and scrapes from infection causing germs.
Not to be outdone by peppermint essential oil, coconut oil also has the ability to help with cuts and scrapes. It’s antibacterial properties make it ideal for preventing infection in small cuts and scrapes while it also promotes collagen production for the repair of skin cells.
