Our organically grown peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from the crisp, fragrant leaves of the Mentha x piperita herb that is grown and cultivated in small, tucked away fields dotting parts of the Italian countryside.
These deliciously green mint leaves create a strong, herbaceous, minty essential oil that is such a perfect choice when formulating for a healthy digestive system and to help ease nausea. This essential oil is also respected for its many therapeutic properties and is helpful when looking to reduce unwanted bacteria and viruses as well as assisting to reduce pain and inflammation. Peppermint essential oil awakens and refreshes the senses, often helping to promote self-confidence and stimulate new ideas and creativity. One of our favorite to use this essential oil is in a blend for helping to bring relief to an upset stomach, as it also uplifts and refreshes the mind when one isn’t feeling very well.

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.
