Peppermint is one of Aunt Hellen's favorite soaps. Peppermint essential oil added to skin soaps works as an antiseptic skin cleanser used to treat urticaria and pruritus. It also relives itchiness and irritation when used with moderation; otherwise it may cause skin irritation. Ruby also cautions the use on children under the age of 5 years old as their skin is more sensitive then an adults. Peppermint soap acts as a refreshing skin tonic and cools down inflammation caused by skin blemishes and acne.
