Organic peppermint oil is steam distilled from the aerial portions of Mentha piperita. This top note has a minty, hot, and herbaceous scent that is popular in soaps, room sprays, and cleaning recipes. Mild climate stress in the growing conditions of the plant increases the oil content and sesquiterpene levels in the oil. Peppermint essential oil blends well with grapefruit, marjoram, pine, eucalyptus, or rosemary.

This oil is potentially choleretic, neurotoxic, and can irritate mucous membranes. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.
Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
