Usages of Peppermint Essential Oil

First you need to know how pure your oil is and how it was extracted. Some essential oils are extracted by the use of chemicals and others are by steam distillation. The oils which are extracted with chemicals are what are called absolutes. We at do not use absolutes because there's always a trace element of the chemical left in the oil that was used to extract it. Another item to look out for when purchasing essential oils are what part of the World where they grow. We strictly use Peppermint Oil which was grown in India. Reason is that this oil has more of a candy cane fragrance and Works better in our bath & body products. I will give you some wonderful characteristics about Peppermint Oil and also some cautions about when and when not to use it.
Our Peppermint Essential Oil is extracted by steam distillation, not by chemicals. This is a 100% pure therapeutic quality essential oil and is from India.
Characteristics: Its fragrance is like a stick of peppermint candy and is a strongly piercing, refreshing, and minty and has a very herbaceous aroma. It is said to help people become clear headed and refreshes the spirits. Stated to be helpful for people who are unable to concentrate or who have mental fatigue.
We have found this oil good for clearing sinuses and as an energizer in one of our inhalers. During cold season we place a few drops in a vaporizer at night when plagued with a stuffy head.
We personally use this oil for one of those aggravating headaches. We are not suggesting this openly for you to try, it is just what works for us. If I have a headache across the top of my forehead, temple area or at the back of my neck, I take a little oil on my finger tip and rub a small amount in the painful area and in seconds I can feel the pain leave. Again we make no medical claims here about this oil, this has not been proven with the FDA and if tried in this manner one should contact their doctor first.
Best avoided by pregnant women and nursing mothers as it may discourage flow of milk.
Look for this cooling and uplifting oil in our bath & body products, such as our Sulfate free shampoo, hair conditioner, shower gel, whipped shea butter, goat's milk soap, candles and room spray.
You can find this oil at
Choosing one of our essential oils or blends in a 5 ml amber glass bottle and one of our either sleek plastic or elegant aluminum pocket refillable inhalers will make that perfect unique gift!
If you have any other knowledge about this oil and uses please comment about it, we would love to know and would even post on our site for others to read and learn.
Thanks and hope to chat soon, Barry...
