Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is a powerful essential oil that is highly regarded to promote and enhance healthy intestinal function and support normal digestion. Peppermint is steam distilled form leaves, stems, and flower buds. It takes one pound of raw peppermint material to make one 15 ml bottle of peppermint. Fresh, nostalgic, and instantly recognizable, Peppermint essential oil’s scent invigorates the mind and senses, while inspiring a sense of peace. Used topically, Peppermint oil creates a cool, tingling sensation on the skin, making it a favorite for sports massage.

When your day is dragging—through a workout, class, or day at work—enjoy some Peppermint oil benefits by applying it to your head and neck. The refreshing aroma will give you a boost of positivity! Peppermint is also a great option for diffusing on its own or with compatible scents such as Lavender, Rosemary, Spearmint, or Sage.

This versatile essential oil has been widely studied for its potential health benefits and its ability to enhance mental acuity.
