Peppermint is well-known for its antiseptic and analgesic properties. It is stimulating and soothing while also being refreshing on the skin and scalp.
Peppermint is an aromatic perennial herb from the Labiatae family, bearing serrated, dentate leaves and purple flowers. There are two varieties available: black or white peppermint and depending on these, the leaf colour can vary from green to purple-green. The infusion is simply made by adding the fresh herb to boiled water.
