Essential Oil Peppermint 20ml
Product Abstract: Mentha piperita is a perennial hybrid that proliferates by spreading its rhizomes underground that can grow anywhere. Peppermint's name has its roots in Greek mythology. Hades, god of the dead, pursued the beautiful nymph, Minthe. Hades' wife, Persephone, became jealous and turned Minthe into a small and insignificant plant on which to be trampled. Pluto could not undo the transformation, but ensured that Minthe would always be loved for her fragrant aroma. Peppermint is used as a fragrancing agent in soaps, candles and toiletries.
Scent: Cool, minty, and vibrant, Peppermint Oil is a wildly popular scent, as we can find it in herbal teas and other beverages, chewing gum, vapor rub, candies, muscle rub, medicines, and even cosmetics! This powerful fragrance is distinctive and comforting in a familiar way.
Uses: Traditionally used for rejuvenating and uplifting the body, Peppermint Oil awakens the senses when a couple drops are dabbed on the temples. It is a relaxing herb that is often used to calm muscles. Have you ever used a hot/cold muscle rub? If you have, it probably included peppermint for muscle soothing purposes.
Note: Because of the very high menthol content of this oil, it tends to crystalize. We would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to its liquid state, then gently agitate before use.
Cautions: Dilute very well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
