Description
Peppermint essential oil’s refreshing, minty, strong aroma is unmistakable! It can bring a smile and sharpen your senses, making you feel more alert and energized. Use it to feel creative and positive. Peppermint is also a classic belly oil, able to calm many kinds of discomfort. In low dilutions, peppermint oil is cooling, but too many drops of this oil become warming. (Always protect your skin!) Our organically grown peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from crisp, green peppermint leaves cultivated in small, tucked-away fields dotting the Italian countryside.

Traveling? Add a few drops of peppermint oil to an inhaler to calm a queasy belly on the plane (or boat).

Digest - Bloating

Loosening your belt a few notches after a big meal? Make a belly oil with peppermint essential oil!

Energy - Energizing

Diffuse peppermint essential oil in the morning to get your energy going and experience an alert, positive mental state.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
