Mentha x piperita
Peppermint essential oil’s refreshing, minty, strong aroma is unmistakable! It can bring a smile to your face and sharpen your senses, so 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.
