Nature/Essence – Invigorating & Clearing
FOR 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.
FOR 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.
FOR 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.
FOR 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.

Lovely smell and great for hair
Used in most of my handmade stuffs such as cleaning spray, washing powder, hair serum and deodorant ( A drop is enough to cool the underarms. Great for summer version deodorant)
The dropper is extra slow. I don't want to shake the bottle in case it comes out too fast and my armpits will be on fire.
MY FAVOURITE EO FOR MY SOAPS!! LOOOVE IT :)
First time I have ordered this so I can use it to make my own toothpaste. It smells and tastes very nice and I will continue to order it.
Lovely products and great service. Parcel was well packaged and arrived quickly.
A very easy process to purchase on line.
