Using your Peppermint Essential Oil:
  • Aromatically Inhale Peppermint Essential Oil to increase alertness or boost your energy levels naturally. This oil supports clear breathing and respiratory function so is a great oil to diffuse or apply topically.
  • Topically If you have a headache, apply to temples or back of the neck for relief. If you are experiencing asthma or sinusitis you can apply to the chest (dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil) or the soles of your feet. Got hives or allergies? Apply under nose or take in some water. You can also use Peppermint Essential Oil diluted to relieve sunburn or fevers due to its cooling properties.

  • Internally Bad breath? No fear, Peppermint is here! Gargle in some water to help with bad breath and support your oral health. You can take in a capsule if you are experiencing digestive discomfort or to supress cravings. Speaking of cravings next time you are whipping up a choclate dessert why not add some peppermint?!

 

Sourcing Peppermint Essential Oil

The Pacific Northwest of the USA is ideal for growing peppermint due to the high amount of annual rainfall, this contributes to the high menthol content.
