Please Note:

The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

Peppermint Western U.S. is regarded as higher quality than non-U.S. Peppermints because it has a smoother, more refined odor. This is due to several minor constituents being at slightly different levels. Peppermint Western U.S. has a higher menthol content (desirable, as this is the main therapeutic constituent) and a lower pulegone content (also desirable, as this is a less pleasant constituent).

Peppermint is stimulating, and when diffused can help uplift the spirit and enhance alertness. I t can also relieve the discomfort of an upset tummy, and support healthy digestive and respiratory systems.

Because of its higher menthol content, Peppermint has a cooling effect which can help when you are feeling under the weather and is also great for discomfort.

Add well-diluted to a carrier oil for an uplifting massage. Add a couple of drops of peppermint to some distilled water or witch hazel and shake well for a cooling spray during menopausal “power surges” (please avoid spraying around the eyes).

5.0 5  My favorite oil

This is 100% my favorite oil. The fresh, cool, minty scent is indeed cleaner, smoother, and more refined than Indian Peppermint, and it is the best remedy ever to put 4-6 drops on a cool washcloth, wrap it up, and lay over your forehead when you have a migraine!
