Peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from the Peppermint plant. Aromatically, Peppermint has a minty, hot, herbaceous scent.
"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 dōTERRA Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally.* Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among dōTERRA essential oils."
This is considered a HOT oil. Do not apply without carrier oil. Always follow recommended dilution when applying. Use caution when taking internally. Use caution when breastfeeding.
Peppermint is regarded as the “Oil of a Buoyant Heart.” It may assist one in feeling buoyant, optimistic, relieved, and strength to face emotional pain. Peppermint may also assist one in releasing unbearable pain, intense despair, heavyhearted, and pessimistic.
