Peppermint in a footbath or a foot massage cream is one of the best things for tired, achy feet. It is stimulating and tingly. It has the advantage of being antifungal, anti-inflammatory, stimulating to the circulatory system, and analgesic. What more could you want for tired feet? A strong cup of the Peppermint herb tea is a great remedy for an upset stomach. The essential oil can also be used to aid digestion: you can add 2 drops to an oz. of carrier and rub it on your belly for a similar effect. Try it in a bathroom spray. It leaves the room smelling fresh. It is great to diffuse in very small amounts during the day, bringing a stimulating aroma into any room. Great in cool compresses for nausea, headaches and travel sickness. Excellent in reducing acute, hot pain. Gets rid of ants!

The Indian distiller of this essential oil has been distilling essential oils for the past 20 years. His company uses their own essential oils to make a variety of aromatherapy products, and exports pure essential oils around the globe. Along with their own distilling they hire rural Indian farmers to grow aromatic plants and distill oil for them. These essential oils are distilled at the farmers’ fields in a portable distillery so that the flowers, roots, and leaves are fresh when distilled. The quality and vibrancy of their oils is unsurpassed.

May antidote homeopathic remedies. May cause skin irritation. Use in low dilution (1%) when applying to the skin. Avoid using Peppermint with children under 5 years; it's too strong. May be more therapeutically effective in small doses. I don't recommend adding it to a full body bath since it can easily be skin irritating, causing a burning sensation and reddening of your skin.
The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.
