Peppermint Certified Organic Essential Oil
Obtained from the flowering top and green leaves of the Mentha Piperita plant, Organic Peppermint India Essential Oil is a variety of the famous Peppermint plant found in India.
Mentha Piperita has slightly hairy serrated leaves with pinkish-mauve flowers, arranged in a long conical shape. According to Greek mythology the nymph Mentha was sexually pursued by Pluto, whose jealous wife Persephone, trod her ferociously into the ground. Pluto then turned her into a herb, knowing that people would appreciate her for years to come. That herb turned out to be Peppermint! There’s early evidence that cultivation of Peppermint started around 1000 B.C. Its strong mint scent, as well as its uses and benefits makes Peppermint Essential Oil a staple for many today!
Peppermint Essential Oil is one of the most versatile oils we know of. It's ability to address a wide range of ailments makes it a valuable addition to your natural medicine cabinet. Massage on sore, painful muscles. Apply to the temples or diffuse for headaches. Diffuse or add to a spray bottle of water to get rid of spiders, flying insects, and even, mice! My favorite concoction for Sore Muscles and Arthritis - gets rid of the pain within 5 minutes is: In a 15 ml Essential Oil bottle, add 5 ml Peppermint Essential Oil, 5 ml Fennel Essential Oil, and 2 ml Wintergreen. Apply directly to painful area. Sensitive persons may need to dilute with a carrier oil. Delete the Wintergreen if you are pregnant or nursing. I've massaged the Peppermint + Fennel onto my daughters back during child labor and she was very pleased with the effect! Peppermint should NOT be used if Pre-Labor Pregnant as it stimulates contractions and menstrual flow. DO NOT use Peppermint Essential Oil if you have Epilepsy. It is controversial if Peppermint Essential Oil is effective for indigestion or acid reflux as some individuals experience a worsening of symptoms. When I'm just spraying the outside of the house at doors and windows to eliminate the multitude of insects we have here in Tennessee, the cheaper, non-organic Mint Essential Oil works very effectively. When it's going in or on my body, or being diffused indoors, I use Certified Organic Peppermint Essential Oil.
