Essential Oil

Peppermint Oil

Mentha x piperita

Our organically grown peppermint oil is steam distilled from crisp, fragrant peppermint leaves that are grown and cultivated in small, tucked away fields dotting the Italian countryside. One of our favorite ways to use peppermint essential oil is in a blend for helping to bring relief to an upset stomach. It can also uplift and refresh, which is helpful when one isn’t feeling very well.

Benefits and uses

The deliciously green Mentha x piperita 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 reduce pain and inflammation. It is also a popular choice for clearing the respiratory system and can even help with allergy relief.

Emotionally and energetically, peppermint essential oil awakens and refreshes the senses, often helping to promote self-confidence and stimulate new ideas and creativity. It is great for encouraging focus and sharpening the mind.

Safety & Warnings

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.
