Used by the ancients to scent their bath water and as a restorative, spearmint has made its way up through the centuries as a useful culinary and medicinal herb. Its therapeutic properties resemble that of peppermint, it is a stimulant, however, spearmint’s effects are gentler and its taste is sweeter. Aromatherapists use spearmint to energize the mind and body. A few drops in bath water has a refreshing effect.

Best shaving oil there is. Softens and prepares even a heavy beard for shaving and makes the razor glide easily.

I am wondering how long a bottle last if used daily? Thanks
A shopper on Mar 7, 2013
Best Answer: Well, he's still using it so it must last a long time. (Last purchaed in 2011) He also likes it and that's even more important. Most important is that it doesn't leave an aroma since I'm allergic to perfumes.

does this product have a gender neutral smell in case a woman wants to use to shave her legs?
A shopper on Dec 20, 2012
Best Answer: I think it is mostly gender neutral as it does not add any extra fragrance to my face after shaving and rinsing off.. I cannot say enough about this product, after using it once, years ago, I see to it that I never run out (I always keep 2-3 extra around). It is that good. James, RVC, NY

Does this work for electric shavers?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2013
Best Answer: I am not sure. I use this with a power Gillette fusion razor, and most times I double up with the white eagle for a nice smooth shave.
