The fresh, cool scent of Mentha piperita essential oil can be attributed to its menthol content.
Herbaceous and warm underneath it's bright coolness, peppermint essential oil is used in aromatherapy as an energizer and mental fatigue reliever, particularly when combined with eucalyptus, basil, lavender, lemon or rosemary.
Cautions: Highly concentrated essential oil. Dilute before using. As with all essential oils, keep out of reach of children. Peppermint oil may irritate sensitive skin.
