Growing a thicker beard with Peppermint Essential Oil

While an individual's genetic limitations are the determining factor in overall beard thickness, it can be difficult to know if our beards have reached their full genetic potential. Factors such as lifestyle choices and medical conditions can impact blood flow, and hormone levels potentially restricting beard growth below what our genetics allow for. This means that someone may have the genetic potential for a thicker beard, but external factors could be hindering its full growth.

 Enter Peppermint essential oil

Peppermint essential oil has been shown to be a potent natural remedy for promoting hair growth and thickness. Studies have shown that when used at certain percentages, peppermint essential oil outperforms minoxidil, a common hair growth treatment. This is believed to be due to peppermint oil's ability to stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles, which in turn promotes hair growth. By increasing blood circulation, peppermint oil helps to nourish and strengthen the hair follicles, leading to thicker and healthier hair. Additionally, peppermint oil is a natural alternative to minoxidil, which can have side effects for some individuals.

Peppermint essential oil is also known for its antimicrobial properties, which can help promote a healthy environment for beards to flourish. By keeping the beard free of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms, peppermint oil encourages hair growth by reducing the risk of infections that can inhibit follicle health. Additionally, peppermint oil has a soothing and cooling effect, which can help alleviate irritation and inflammation. This can create a more optimal environment for hair growth to occur.

So if you're wondering how to grow a thicker beard, incorporating peppermint essential oil into your grooming routine may be a simple and effective solution. Hairy Highlander's best-selling peppermint range of organic beard oils (Cairn Gorm and Macdui) both contain the right percentage of peppermint essential oil thought to stimulate hair growth.
