Organic peppermint essential oil is a top note steam distilled from Mentha piperita. It’s characteristic scent is fresh and minty with, warm, deep, and herbaceous notes. Peppermint is cultivated all over the world and is a popular and well-known oil. It blends well with most oils from citrus, forest oils like cypress or pine, and herbal oils such as rosemary, lavender, sage, or basil.
This specific lot of peppermint oil has a different balance of constituents from what we typically carry, making it ideal for candlemaking, homemade cleaning products, body or room sprays, and diffusing. We do not recommend it for aromatherapy use.
Packaging The 1 oz. size is packaged in an amber glass bottle with a drop reducer. The 4 oz. size is packaged in an amber glass bottle and does not come with a reducer or dropper.
