 What Is Peppermint Essential Oil?

Peppermint essential oil has been used for centuries in folk medicine and ancient rituals. It’s made by steam distilling the leaves and buds of the peppermint plant, which is a hybrid between spearmint and watermint. It contains high amounts of menthol — a chemical compound that gives it a minty scent and cooling sensation. Today you’ll find peppermint essential oil in everything from food products to cosmetics and candles, however, one of the most popular ways to use it is through aromatherapy.

Precautions When Diffusing Peppermint Essential Oil

Because peppermint essential oil has a strong aroma, it can be irritating to some and should be used sparingly (2-3 drops max) when diffusing. In addition, you should also ensure your space is well-ventilated, that the diffuser is pointing away from your eyes or mouth, and is not on for prolonged periods of time. You should also avoid diffusing peppermint essential oil around pregnant women, people with respiratory conditions like asthma, and children as it contains menthol which can cause an allergic reaction in some people.

"I recently researched the best treatment for dry skin and scalp...I then came across some helpful info on the benefits of Jojoba oil and decided to look for an organic brand. Your oil is truly wonderful. I now use it exclusively for skin and scalp, only adding frankincense essential oil for its calming effects. This combo is exceptional. I'm very glad I found Cliganic."
