There's more to mint than you think!

Ever wonder exactly why it is customary to receive a mint after eating a meal or why most toothpastes are mint-flavoured? There are actually a lot of benefits to be gained by eating mint, and the closest it is to its natural form the better. Just eating a peppermint-flavoured-sugar-loaded sweet is much less effective, if any (and less healthy) than this!

The two types of mint that we know is Peppermint and Spearmint. Both have exceptional qualities when it comes to fighting bacteria in the mouth. This is exactly why it works for halitosis aka bad breath as the bacteria is what creates that foul smell and taste in your mouth.

The Peppermint or Spearmint herb’s essential oil itself is what gives this benefit, not just flavoured sweets. Sweets unfortunately just mask the odour temporarily. This fact actually worsens the problem as it acidifies your mouth pH. Acidity in the mouth is one of the main causes of bad breath and dental cavities.

Another great attribute of Mint, whether from Peppermint or Spearmint, is that it helps with digestive upsets. Studies show that it has a calming and numbing effect on the muscles which line the stomach and intestines. It also assists with peristalsis and bloating making this your go-to essential oil when disaster strikes!

Most soothing muscle gels are loaded with Mint, because it is so soothing and calming. This also makes the essential oil form Mint a great choice for headaches and migraines. It also affects the emotions, giving you a sensation of upliftment and positivity.
