Peppermint 100% Essential Oil – 1/3 fl oz., Aromatherapy Grade
Peppermint Essential Oil has a cooling and revitalizing effect on the skin. When diluted in a carrier oil it can be applied to the temples or back of the neck to ease headaches and muscle tension or for an uplifting massage. When used as an aromatic, it can ease a queasy stomach. It also makes a refreshing foot-soak when a few drops are added to warm water. As with other aromatherapy grade oils, peppermint oil should not be taken orally. Combined with a carrier oil it is great in massages or worn itself in aroma jewelry associated with the following stones: Blue Lace Agate (cooling and soothing), Chrysoprase (calms over-excitement and cools the situation), Fluorite (cooling, calming energy).
The herb peppermint is a natural cross between water mint and spearmint. Mint has been used for health purposes for several thousand years. It is mentioned in records from ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Peppermint essential oil is a concentrated oil that is extracted from the peppermint plant by steam distillation. Peppermint Essential Oil is strongly aromatic with a fresh grassy-mint scent. It is soothing as well as invigorating and helps promote energy and alertness.
