Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint Essential oil
Peppermint is a fast growing perennial with herb with green stems and leaves and small white flowers. Peppermint is the big cooler that is refreshing, cleansing and cooling with hints of camphor and grass. Peppermint essential oil is an ideal remedy to stimulate the mind, aiding concentration and memory. The herby and fragrant aroma of peppermint essential oil is said help provide excellent relief to mental fatigue.
A good way of using essential oils is to vaporise them. The water and the essential oils evaporate as steam, allowing the aroma from the oil to fill the room. By adding a few drops of oil to your burner or humidifier electric diffuser or in hot water is brilliant for the respiratory system, to ease nasal and chest congestion or to cleanse the air environment around you, allowing you to de-stress, relax and un-wind.
Blends well with
Peppermint can be used with many essential oils. Our favourite in a lot of blends is Lavender; two oils which would seem to contradict one another but instead work in absolutely synergy. As well as this Peppermint blends well with Benzoin, Cedarwood, Cypress, Mandarin, Marjoram, Niouli, Rosemary and Pine.
As with all essential oils we do not recommend using Peppermint pure essential oil during pregnancy.
Never pour essential oils directly onto the skin or undiluted in water: mix a few drops of essential oil in a base oil, whole milk or cream, and add it to bath water. 3- 5 drops of essential oil are sufficient per 10ml of base oil.
Store at room temperature in a cool dry place and do not store in direct sunlight or expose to sources of heat. Keep away from children and animals, for external use only, do not apply undiluted to the skin and do not ingest. If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show the container label.
