With a high menthol content, peppermint oil is a treasured oil with many benefits.

Peppermint. Just the word itself can conjure up visions and sensations of a cooling, revitalizing experience. In fact, peppermint has been a favorite since ancient times due to its distinct effects on the senses and for its beneficial properties.

Peppermint belongs to the Lamiaceae family in the genus Mentha and botanically named Mentha piperita. Originally native to Europe, peppermint is now cultivated in nearly all regions globally, growing well in shady conditions and featuring lance-shaped, purple-veined and dark-green leaves with purple-colored flowers. There are more than 20 varieties of mint herbs that exhibit a wide range of color, fragrance and flavor.

Peppermint’s characteristic refreshingly cool-breeze mint quality is due to its content of menthol, the essential oil found in its fresh leaves and in its stem. Menthol, menthone and menthyl esters found in peppermint and peppermint oil are often used for overall health,† skin and beauty.

General Directions for Use:

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in a diffuser.

Internal use: Dilute one drop in at least 4 fluid ounces of liquid.

Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil of your choice to minimize any skin sensitivity.

Cautions: Possible skin sensitivity. Consult your physician before use, especially if pregnant, nursing, taking medication or if you have a medical condition. Avoid eyes, mucous membranes, and sensitive skin. Keep out of reach of children. For topical, aromatherapy or dietary purposes.
