Description

As for the garden mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and refreshes the spirit.–The Roman naturalist. Peppermint oil is well-known for the dramatic effect it has on the body and mind. In the body, it is particularly well-suited for opening the breath, and relaxing an overworked body. Adding a few drops of peppermint to a massage oil or lotion and rubbed on after a yoga session or enthusiastic hike can do wonders for restoring feelings of comfort and ease. Peppermint is one of the first oils we reach for whenever we need to clear the air or restore balance to the family facing the challenges of winter.

Peppermint powerfully sharpens mental focus by removing dull and hazy feelings. As a cooling oil, peppermint is also extremely effective for taking the edge off of tension. Peppermint’s cool and clearing nature makes it ideal for stimulating mental agility and improving concentration for the tasks at hand. It is also effective against worry, grief and heaviness. This is a great oil to keep on hand next to your diffuser in your office or work studio.

Peppermint is used to relieve upset skin due to bug bites or after spending too much time in the sun. Peppermint is great to add to your hair care routine as it nourishes and balances a dull, oily scalp. It is commonly used in dental care due to its effective and refreshing properties.

Among the oldest and most continuously used of all therapeutic oils, the bright, mentholated fragrance of peppermint essential oil is instantly recognizable and powerfully effective at treating a remarkably wide variety of conditions. This particular Indian peppermint oil is softer and less intensely minty than many similar peppermint essential oils though no less stimulating to the mind and tonic to the digestion.

Mentha piperita is a hybrid of watermint (M. aquatica) and spearmint (M. spicata). Mints are mentioned in early medieval plants lists and were brought to Britain in Roman Times. Mentha piperita has been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 1000 BC, and there is evidence that peppermint has a long history in Europe, China, and Japan. It has been used extensively throughout history for problems such as nausea, headaches, toothaches, cramp, diarrhea, sore throats, and indigestion.

Though it is non-toxic and non-irritating, peppermint may be sensitizing because of its high menthol content, causing irritation to the skin and mucous membranes. Do not use on children younger than 7 years of age. Do not take internally.
