Our organically grown peppermint essential oil distilled in Italy has such a soothing, quieting effect on the digestive system. Using 1-2 drops of peppermint EO in a carrier oil or lotion and rubbing it on your tummy is one of the best ways to help clear and cool an upset stomach.
You can also build on this simple idea and create a blend of peppermint, orange, bergamot mint, and ginger to really help ease a more acute upset stomach.
In addition to being a powerful support to the digestive system, peppermint EO is often used in recipes that are formulated with the intention of being antifungal, anti-inflammatory, stimulating to the circulatory system, and analgesic.
A drop or two of peppermint in a footbath or in a foot massage cream is one of the most rejuvenating oils for tired, achy feet as it is both stimulating and tingly!

May cause skin or mucous membrane irritation. From experience, we recommend using a maximum of 1-2% dilution for topical use. Robert Tisserand officially recommends a maximum of 5%. May antidote homeopathic remedies. Avoid using with children under five years—can be neurotoxic when applied near the face. Contraindicated in case of cardiac fibrillation and for G6PD deficiency. There is a perception that menthol-rich oils can potentially affect blood clotting, but according to Robert Tisserand, it is not sufficient to be cautioned against anticoagulant medication.
The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.
