Peppermint Essential Oil

 

Why do I love it!

Peppermint is a wonderful uplifting essential oil.  I always seem to find a reason to grab my bottle at least once a day, even if its just a quick sniff!

It is another of my top five favorites!!!

So bright, refreshing and sweet.

There is no mistake in recognizing its aroma, this EO instantly makes me take a long deep breath!  That’s one of the reasons I like to use it in my morning meditation blend.

 

Peppermint Plant

You can find Peppermint most everywhere in Europe and in North America and that includes my garden! 

 

It is steam distilled from the leaves, stems and flower buds.
