Product Overview

Our certified organic Peppermint essential oil from India has a wonderfully fresh, cool, candy-sweet, deep and strongly minty aroma with a powerful menthol and sweet balsamic undertone that can be used for both aromatherapy applications and natural perfumery. It is the sweetest and most minty of our Peppermint oils.

Since Peppermint’s aroma strength is quite pronounced due to its menthol content, the amount used in formulas should be carefully considered. Menthol is helpful in cooling muscle and joint massage blends. Menthone, a Peppermint ketone, is the power behind this oil’s incredible diffusiveness, but please note that some safety considerations (see above) must be kept in mind.

Peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from the partially dried herb, harvested in full early bloom, when menthol content is at its peak.[1] True Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) is thought to be a hybrid from three other species of Mentha – M. spicata, M. aquatic, M. longifolia and/or M. suaveolens – all native to southern Europe. The plant is cultivated in North and South America, Europe, Russia, northern Africa, India, Australia and other countries. Brought to the U.S. in the early 1800s, Oregon and Washington states are the main producers of American Peppermint oil.[2]

The uplifting aroma of Peppermint essential oil is refreshing in outdoor and body sprays, diffusers, holiday blends, and a lovely companion during long car rides. For a less intense yet equally refreshing mint, please see our organic Spearmint essential oil.

Perfect Aroma

Rating

The Indian Peppermint is much warmer and more earthy than the US peppermint. It doesn't have the sugar sweet candy/toothpaste scent. It's milder and very nice.

Relaxation

Rating

If the weather changes, I will get headache and muscle pain. I will use peppermint and ginger, diluted with coconut oil to massage my temple, neck and shoulders. The smell of the mix with peppermint and ginger is fantastic. I felt my real relaxation inside my mind.
