If you don’t want to add the peppermint oil to your shampoo, you can mix a few drops in with a carrier oil such as Sweet Almond Oil. Don’t use too much, just a quarter size amount of oil and two to three drops of peppermint oil. Rub your hands together, and run them through your hair from roots to tips. Make sure to wash your hands with soap and water afterwards. You don’t want to accidentally touch your eye area with peppermint oil on your hands.


Peppermint oil can boost your energy levels, no matter how it is used. On your hair, in a diffuser, on diffuser jewelry, or even a DIY perfume.
