Scientific Name: Mentha piperita
Peppermint oil is one of the most versatile and widely used essential oils. Peppermint essential oil was revered and used by the ancient Greeks and Roman for ceremonies for its health-promoting properties. Peppermint oil can display both relaxation and stimulation properties, depending on its use.
Therapeutic peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita) can be sourced from U.S. with organic certification.
When you smell pure peppermint oil, you will notice a very sweet, strong fragrance without a hint of chemical or alcohol adulterants so commonly found in this essential oil. The oil is very gently steam distilled to preserve the highest percentage oil constituents.
Do not used undiluted on sensitive skin areas. Always test a small amount of any essential oil first for sensitivity or allergic reaction.
