The Summerdown collection harnesses the power of peppermint for body, bath and home

 

Winter blues. Post-Christmas Seasonal slump. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). It’s very normal to feel like you’ve lost your mojo at this time of year. Though there are many contributing factors, there’s a clear link between our mood, and the fact that January is the month with the least amount of natural light available to us.

Miserable weather and lack of sunlight doesn’t help lift our mood

 

There are lots of things we can do to pick ourselves up; from light therapy, to taking more exercise, detoxing, reducing alcohol intake and dietary changes, but one simple and natural one is to embrace the restorative powers of peppermint, the key ingredient at the heart of all our products.

Peppermint has actually been used for medicinal purposes since Egyptian times and some say it’s the oldest medicine in the world. Here are some of its healing properties;

 

Mood-enhancing and energy boosting.

 

In April 2016, researchers from the University of Northumbria’s Department of psychology published their findings that peppermint enhanced and aroused both mood and cognition, helping to improve long term memory, working memory and alertness. Whilst Studies at the Sense of Smell Institute confirm that peppermint oil has mood-elevating properties that make it useful for alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression

Research shows that peppermint can enhance mood, energy and alertness

 

Stimulating

Peppermint oil is a natural stimulant that can increase your ability to concentrate. Inhaling the aroma of peppermint oil will also trigger your senses and wake you up. Janice Cox, leading US Natural beauty and natural home expert, says in her book “Natural Beauty at Home” that peppermint oil can give you extra energy in the morning so suggests showering with it to give yourself a great start to the day

Stress-relieving

 

Peppermint not only stimulates but can also help us to relax. So you can dab a few drops of the oil (mixed with a carrier) on your temples when you have a tension headache, or lie back and relax in the bath with a cup of our peppermint tea
