Peppermint Essential Oil
Pure, Organic Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Essential Oil
Our Indian-sourced Peppermint e.o. is rich with the compounds menthol, menthone, 1,8-cineole, and limonene. Menthol is the cooling compound associated with Peppermint's familiar cooling tingle.
Peppermint is famous for it's energizing and cooling properties and it's minty fresh aroma. The herbal form of Peppermint makes a widely-popular tea and is surprisingly good in savory food too!
The stimulating effect of Peppermint e.o. is beneficial for mental or physical fatigue. Use Peppermint during the day, rather than at night. Traditional use favors Peppermint for head aches, digestive support, sinus congestion, joint or muscle aches and as an antiseptic.
Ideas for use:
- Try adding Peppermint essential oil to a massage blend for digestive problems and flatulence (plus the side benefit of muscle and joint support of course!)
- Make a soothing foot bath, especially nice after a long day on your feet
- Add one drop on a handkerchief during travel for a quick pick-me-up
- Use in a car diffuser for long trip
NOTE: Peppermint oil can cause skin irritation, best to diffuse or use diluted in a carrier oil. Do not use Peppermint oil when pregnant.
