Peppermint Essential Oil
You asked for it on our Facebook page!
Latin name = Mentha peperita
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.
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.

For children, you need to dilute your blend to a MAXIMUM of 0.5% only.
DO NOT use near your eyes!
Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing.
