A friend had severe bronchitis and was running out of Peppermint Latte. She's a fellow nurse and requested it ASAP because it was helping her breathe. I knew she wasn't overeacting and got them to her immediately, along with a small musline bag of rice infused with peppermint oil to keep at hand.
According to Medical News Today inhaling peppermint creates a cooling senstation that soothes and relaxes bronchial muscles. Perhaps this is why it's so popular, it naturally relaxes. (NOTE: peppermint is not recommended for children under eight years old or pregnant women.)
Before I began making soap I bought a peppermint bar from Barnes and Noble and loved it. When it dwindled to a sliver I went back for more all to discover they were out and only sold them at Christmas. I was hooked and couldn't get my fix.
When I began making soap I decided to offer this year-round. Now, I have many customers who are just as hooked and I serve them happily year-round. When it's time to restock I make a helfty 10lb batch.
Our Peppermint Latte bars moisturize, feed and revitalize skin with olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, rice bran oil and Shea butter. Now I can say it helps us breathe when we're under the weather.
These bars make particularly nice gifts because they are unique and hard to find outside the holiday season.
