Peppermint Arvensis Essential Oil
100% PURE, THERAPEUTIC GRADE ESSENTIAL OIL
COMMON NAME Peppermint oil, arvensis
BOTANICAL NAME Mentha arvensis
PLANT PARTS USED Leaves
EXTRACTION METHOD Distillation
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN India
 

Because of its high content of l-menthol Mentha arvensis is widely used as a source material for the production of l-menthol and other derivatives.

Please note, during colder months menthol will crystalise causing the oil to solidify, stand the bottle in hot water to liquefy before use.

The essential oil is effectively a by-product of that process, and therefore conventional, such as this, Mentha arvensis oil is delivered in rectified (partially de-mentholated) form. Its actions are similar to Peppermint, invigorating and clearing to the body and mind. Nature/Essence – Invigorating & Clearing

SKIN ICON 72pxFOR THE SKIN
Peppermint oil helps clear congestion and heat, and has local anaesthetic and antiseptic properties – great for itching, redness and irritation of the skin or scalp. Use sparingly and well diluted as it can be a skin irritant itself, and has a profound cooling effect.
 
BODY ICON 72pxFOR THE BODY
Peppermint’s cooling and relieving action is the best where heat and congestion are predominant. Great in foot rubs or foot baths, and massage blends for sore muscles and joints after sports, exertion or from standing all day. Also helpful for neuralgia and bruising.
Its clearing aroma is great as an inhalation for nasal, sinus or chest congestion to open up the airways. Apply to temples or use as an inhalation for headaches and toxic congestion from overindulgence or digestive problems. The fresh aroma of Peppermint is ideal to help ease travel sickness and nausea. A few drops on a tissue can be discreetly inhaled for quick relief during times of need. Applied to the abdomen it is wonderful to soothe an upset digestive system including bloating, spasms, flatulence, colic, and to stimulate liver and gallbladder function.
 
MIND ICON 72pxFOR THE MIND
Peppermint clears the head, refreshing during times of mental fatigue and encouraging concentration and clear thinking. Great in study or work blends, and instils a cool, calm and collected atmosphere in times of anger, nervous tension and heated emotions.
 
HOME ICON 72pxFOR THE HOME
Peppermint oil is a favourite in household cleaning blends for its antiseptic qualities and fresh clean scent. Also a great oil to diffuse to clear and refresh the energy in a room.
