When walking through the garden, we are acutely aware of the powerful aromas of plants. We love to stop and take in the lovely scent of the flowers, plants and trees. We see the birds, bees and butterflies doing the same. The impact of these scents can be powerful and each scent has a unique effect upon our bodies - relaxing, stimulating, easier breathing. Peppermint is known for its stimulating properties. Those with sensitive skin should exercise caution when using products containing peppermint oil.
