Peppermint Essential Oil 101
Peppermint Essential Oil has a long track record. It has been used around the world for its soothing and antimicrobial properties, dating as far back as Egyptian times. With its high menthol content, it gives a fresh, cooling sensation—that’s why you find it in so many toothpastes and gums.
We diffuse Peppermint often in the office to cue the brain to wake up naturally. We’re also big fans of adding it to existing products to stimulate the mind and body. Oh, and one last piece of advice: do not put Peppermint in the bath—your sensitive areas will thank you.
How we use it
- Vapour rub: mix 2 drops of Peppermint with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 2 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil for a vapour rub that will open up those airways.
- Diffuser blend: diffuse 8 drops of Peppermint with 8 drops of Sweet Orange for an unexpected, uplifting aroma.
- Shampoo boost: add 3 drops of Peppermint to your regular morning shampoo or conditioner to stimulate your scalp and energize your mind.
Blends well with
Eucalyptus, Sweet Orange, Lemon.
