The benefits of essential oils in cocktails

The mojito is an iconic cocktail appreciated for its freshness and intense flavors. By adding lime and peppermint essential oils to this drink, you can not only enhance the flavors, but also enjoy the benefits that these essential oils provide.

Lime essential oil brings a crisp and refreshing citrus flavor to the mojito, while providing uplifting and revitalizing properties. Rich in antioxidants, it also helps to strengthen the immune system and promote better digestion.

Spearmint essential oil intensifies the freshness already present in the mojito thanks to the mint leaves. Its digestive and soothing properties make it an excellent choice for relieving mild digestive upset and bloating. It also has a cooling effect on the mind, helping to reduce mental fatigue.
