About the Oil: 100% pure certified organic peppermint essential oil. This is an excellent choice for all peppermint applications, including diffuser use. Peppermint is known for its wonderful effects on the digestive system, respiratory system, and nervous system, as well as for its distinctive aroma.
Pure peppermint essential oil is considered by aromatherapists to be one of the more indispensable essential oils. This oil should be in every traveler's first aid kit. It can work wonders for motion sickness and general nausea. The menthol in this oil is a potent compound that unto itself causes a quick physical response when inhaled or applied to the skin. It produces a sensation of coolness which the body counteracts by increasing blood flow to the area of application, producing a warming effect. Menthol is often found in sports creams, chest rubs, and cough drops.
Aroma: Crisp, classic peppermint. It presents with a bright, green floral top note followed by a zesty, citrus middle note, with undertones of sweet balsamic and a touch of menthol.
Chemistry: The main constituent of peppermint is menthol.
Suggestions: Direct inhalation, diffuser, oil vaporizer, steam inhalation. Peppermint oil is strengthening, soothing, and stimulating (it is noted that use during the day is better than just before bedtime).
