Be kind to body and mind with fresh and cooling Peppermint oil.
With its invigorating aroma, therapeutic Peppermint oil uplifts both body and mind. While the Ancient Greeks and Romans used peppermint to flavour their food and wines, it wasn’t until the mid-18th century that the herb was cultivated for its versatile therapeutic properties. Traditionally used in aromatherapy to relieve symptoms of mild tension headaches as well as to support mental function, we like to think of Peppermint oil as nature’s leveller – the perfect counterbalance to today’s busy world.
The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753.
A high menthol content—like that found in the doTERRA® Peppermint essential oil— distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products.
Peppermint oil has been traditionally used in Aromatherapy to relieve cough, support mental function and help relieve the symptoms of mild tension headache.
In traditional Western herbal medicine, Peppermint oil has been taken orally to relieve abdominal discomfort, relieve nausea, relieve vomiting, relieve symptoms of sore throat, relieve mild throat inflammation and applied orally (directly to the mouth cavity) to relieve toothache.
