Thought I would follow-up yesterday’s post on inositol by talking about spearmint tea. It’s another hot topic in the PCOS community. Not just the PCOS community. As an anti-androgen, it helps the symptoms of PCOS by reducing the amount of testosterone in your body. In one long & enthusiastic thread on the topic, I read about men who used it to slow down beard growth so they didn’t get five o’clock shadow, it also made shaving easier, & a trans woman who used it to help with her hormones & facial hair.
This is for spearmint tea, not peppermint tea. Some people do report using peppermint oil externally to slow body/facial hair growth & improve the hair on your head. Always, always, dilute your peppermint. Never use straight peppermint oil. For the hair, some people put it right in their conditioner or shampoo. I haven’t tried this yet, but I have the peppermint oil for it.
