Our organic French Peppermint Essential Oil is minty fresh and uplifting, ideal for aromatherapy and natural perfumery alike. The oil is steam distilled from fresh organic peppermint leaves by an artisan farm, yielding a pure peppermint cool as ice, strong and sweet. Peppermint is a highly recommended essential oil for traveling as it effectively relieves many travel complaints including settling an upset stomach, relieving nausea, headache and respiratory distress. Breathe in directly from the bottle to feel the immediate benefits or add a few drops to boiling water and inhale at a safe distance. Or even better, add to a diffuser, nebulizer or personal salt pipe inhaler.
Peppermint Oil has a special affinity for the mind and inhaling it is said to increase focus and sharpen memory. It is also an impecable all natural way to keep the breath super fresh! Peppermint is a popular cooling agent for topical muscle and joint preparations. Peppermint is also indicated as an insect repellent. Be sure to dilute properly into one of our pure plant carrier oils. We would recommend Jojoba or Coconut MCT Oil depending upon the application, however any oil would work. Peppermint Oil has a very powerful aroma due to its menthol content.
