Peppermint is one of the most useful and beloved essential oils - refreshing, cooling, uplifting, and restoring. Used extensively in both Eastern and Western medicine for everything from indigestion to diarrhea, headaches to tired feet, and toothaches to cramps. Peppermint is also a big favorite among both professional and home cooks and can be found as a flavoring agent in a large variety of foods. However, peppermint really shines in aromatherapy, as its fresh, comforting scent soothes and relieves the symptoms of all sorts of ailments, both mental and physical.

Perk Up Your Mind
Cool and invigorating health for your mind, skin, tummy, and lungs. A plant once native only to the Mediterranean, peppermint is now cultivated all over the world. The oil, distilled from the whole peppermint plant just before flowering, contains many therapeutic chemical components, most notably menthol which contributes to its tingling fragrance and distinctive taste.
The restorative powers of Peppermint Essential Oil have been appreciated for centuries. It has even been discovered in an Egyptian tomb dating from 1000 BC. This minty marvel contributes to complete health in a remarkable variety of ways.
Certain components of Peppermint, when introduced to your body through scent, trigger your brain's limbic function to "wake up" your mind. The limbic system (often called the "emotional brain") regulates emotion, behavior, and long-term memory and is closely connected with the olfactory structures in your nose.
Peppermint Essential Oil blends well with basil, black pepper, cypress, eucalyptus, geranium, grapefruit, juniper, lavender, lemon, marjoram, pine, rosemary, and tea tree. To use topically, mix Peppermint Essential Oil with a carrier oil for a concentration of 5% (to achieve, mix 5 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil with 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil). Always test prior to use for sensitivity.
Topically: Add Peppermint to a carrier oil or your favorite lotion for a massage oil. This can be used to massage into tired muscles or cool down screaming skin. Rub on the neck and back to help enhance mental agility and improve focus.
Diffusing: Peppermint can be diffused either alone or in combination with other oils, and it's a great tool to help calm a stuffy and unhappy nose.
Notes: Persons with medical diagnosis or on medications should not use Peppermint Essential Oil without first checking with their healthcare practitioner. Peppermint should NEVER be used on or near a child under the age of 10. Check for skin sensitivity prior to use on any individual over the age of ten years old.
