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  Must have

I had the aura Cacia brand before... which was ok but I could never smell it when I put it in a diffuser. Peppermint is a must have for me... it’s refreshing and great when you are feeling sluggish and blends well with so many oils. I also have to have this for headaches. I bought the one ounce because I can’t be without it....

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Panacea

I use this in the massage and spa field for soft tissue damage, seasonal allergies or respiratory problems via aromatherapy, nerve issues, for my clients as well as myself. A drop or two in water shaken up also gives it a clear pepper taste and also provides stamina boosts and recovery for athletes. I pretty much have to buy 100ml bottles as I use them up so fast now. It is truly a panacea, in that it deals with so many issues that I commonly face.

5.0 5  Headache and nausea relief

Peppermint EO was the first EO I ever used (originally with another company) 5 years ago, and after switching to PT, I continue to love and use this oil so much!! PT's peppermint quality is great, and continues to help relieve my headaches and occasional nausea. I love PT peppermint!
