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.

High quality, subtle peppermint.

This peppermint piperita EO is rather subtle in scent; still minty and fresh, but I would liken it more to the mintiness of hard-boiled peppermint candies or candy canes (without the sweetness, of course).

Strength: 3/5

Colour: Clear.

Fresh scent

Love this to add into my toothpaste recipe. Strong and fresh to counteract the taste of the other ingredients. I'm also going to add it to my mosquito repellant.
