No summer herb garden is complete without fresh mint. This brightly colored leafy plant grows in over thirty different varieties. Each offers an array of skincare benefits. Mint oil is a good antiseptic, which is thought to help calm itchiness and reduce pimples. The fragrant properties of mint make it a popular choice for natural bug repellents. It is often a major ingredient in your favorite bug spray. When it’s not preventing itchy bug bites, the cooling and calming properties of mint may be used to help soothe them. Green garden mint is a popular scent in skin care, hair care and even lip care. Seasonal recipes to incorporate mint may include natural bug spray, body lotion and bar soap. Consider creating basic recipes using green garden mint that you can feature in your product line for summer or even keep all year round.
