Peppermint Essential OilThis Peppermint Essential Oil, of the Supreme variety, has strong minty notes with herbaceous warm undertones.
The history and uses of peppermint oil have been dated back to 1000 B.C in Egypt as well as ancient Asia. Early Egyptian, Chinese and Japanese cultures used peppermint plants and oils for their healing and restorative properties and in Greek mythology, it is said that the god Hades/Pluto transformed a nymph into the peppermint plant. Today the plant’s scientific name is still titled after the nymph, being called Mentha Piperita.
Although it has been used throughout the world, the peppermint plant is a native to the Mediterranean and can most prominently be found in gardens in North American and European Countries. Commonly referred to as the world’s oldest medicine, this cross between a spearmint and water mint plant is used in soaps, shampoos, ice cream and toothpaste as well as used for medical reasons.
Peppermint Essential Oil can be successfully blended best with Sandalwood, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Basil, Bergamot, Cajeput, Cedarwood, Lemon, Lime, Mandarin, Marjoram, Niaouli, Pine, Rosemary, Spearmint, and Thyme Essential Oils.
