Steam distilled from certified organically grown peppermint in Hungary, this oil is fresh, minty, invigorating and cooling. It has been known to help with mental fatigue, depression and even to end a headache. It is one of the best things for tired, achy feet and is known for stimulating new ideas and creativity. Emotionally, it will help to clear the mind, refresh and uplift your spirits, energise you and cool down feelings of anger.
Peppermint Essential Oil blends well with: Cedarwood, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon and rosemary.
Tired, achy feet? Blend 3 to 4 drops of peppermint oil in one tablespoon (15ml) of aloe vera gel and apply to legs and feet.
Headache? Blend one drop peppermint and three drops lavender in one tablespoon (15ml) of carrier oil. Massage onto temples and back of the neck.
Add 1-2 drops to a tablespoon (15ml) of aloe vera gel to help cool a sunburn.
Ants really dislike the minty aroma of peppermint. Put a few drops in areas where you think they are sneaking into your home and they will run the other way.
May be a skin irritant. Use in low dilution (1-2% or 3-5 drops of peppermint oil to one tablespoon (15ml) carrier oil) for topical use. Avoid using on children under 5 years of age as it can be neurotoxic when applied near the face.
Consult your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medications, or being treated for other health challenges. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool place, tightly capped.
