Botanical Name: Mentha arvensis

Main Constituents:
Total Menthone: 32.6%
l-Menthol: 41.0%

Plant Part: Herb

Origin: India

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colorless to pale yellow liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note with a strong aroma, Peppermint has a sharp, penetrating scent based on its high menthol content. The minty sweetness of the vapor makes it one of the most popular Essential Oils.

Blends With: Basil, Bergamot, Cajeput, Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Lime, Mandarin, Marjoram, Niaouli, Pine, Rosemary, Spearmint and Thyme.

Product Abstract: There are several species of the mentha arvensis, a perennial herb that can grow to 3 feet in height. It has hairy leaves with serrated edges and spiked purple flowers, and spreads by way of its underground runners. It is one of the oldest documented medicinal herbs. Peppermint Japanese is known for its high menthol content, and menthol crystals sometimes form right on the leaves. Peppermint's name has its roots in Greek mythology. Hades, god of the dead, pursued the beautiful nymphe, 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 flavouring agent in the food industry, and in soaps, candles and toiletries.

Note: Because of the very high menthol content of this oil, it may crystalize. If so, 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.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

I thought I have purchased the Japanese Organic Peppermint, and when I got the package I realized I must have made a mistake. I am not sorry, as the oil proves to have a great sparkling and bright characteristic to it. I will use it with my cleansing products instead and repurchase the organic version for therapeutic reasons. And I have a feeling I will be buying this again. Great value / product.

REALLY like this peppermint. I didn't think I was a huge peppermint fan, but I really like this in M&P soaps, and I ordered an inhaler as it is such an uplifting scent.It is great for anyone with breathing issues, in a diffuser or humidifier. A little goes a long way and freshens the room. I liked it so much I could not part with my own and ordered more for others!

For CP soap, I don't like this peppermint- it doesn't smell as bold as Peppermint Supreme or have the cooling tingy sensation I love in a mint soap. This one smells sweeter and mild, which is fine for body products or aroma, but Supreme is the one I will stick with- a much truer peppermint.

Looved this scent. I'm a huge peppermint fan. I've had my sugar scrub for two weeks and i haven't noticed any major things. A slight drop in scent but still leaves your skin feeling amazing! Definitely recommend it.

I purchased this and the Peppermint Supreme to compare, based on reviews. This Japanese version has a clean and minty scent that is slightly medicinal and herbaceous. It is not as sweet as the Supreme. The Supreme has a sweet, clean scent exactly like peppermint candies, which fades to a slight herbaceous smell. I greatly preferred the Supreme. Both versions I purchased were the non-organic.

The scent is strong and refreshing, with a bit of sweet scent (not sparkling). I just need to add one drop into my lip balm, toner, and cream and it already smells different. I add it into my soap and it creates a cooling effect. This EO can mix with any other EO to create a more interesting scent!

I love this EO! I bought the 500ml size, and I use it in everything. It's great for clearing up congestion and the scent is absolute amazing, so crisp, refreshing and yummy-smelling. I add it to a lot of different products but I especially enjoy its cooling effects in my shampoo. You can't go wrong with this price.

Very soothing and refreshing! A drop of this in my 15mL homemade facial oil has made a HUGE difference! It feels so relaxing, it makes me want to just sleep forever! Although it is cooling, it doesn't cause any irritation at all! It's really great in pampering the skin! Highly recommended!

I absolutely love this oil. It isn't the most "traditional" mint smell, almost a chocolate undertone to it. Absolutely wonderful - my favourite variety of mint, and the best to blend with lavender and diffuse

By far the BEST mint I have ever smelled! I scent reminiscent of candy canes that's just heavenly. Instantly uplifting! I use it in my decongestant blend, and it adds a nice sweetness to what could be a harsh medicinal blend.

I love this oil! The peppermint I had before was like a candy cane, very sweet, and at first I didn't appreciate that this peppermint didn't have the sweetness to it. But now I love the clarity and strength to the scent. Use it in CP soaps, lotion and perfume sprays. Will be purchasing more when I finish my bottle. Very popular amongst my clients.

Wow. This Japanese Peppermint EO is the ultimate decongestant. It really breaks up mucous & facilitates sinus draining within a couple of hours. Very high menthol content. Dilute accordingly. It work great in an electric diffuser (I used the plug-in that uses the pads - sold here). Whole house gets decongested. :)

What a great way to shop for essential Oils, I have been buying from ND for 6 months now, I have everything good to say for their products and when I have questions I always get my answers from friendly customer service. I have only have one problem when I shop, I can't seem to stop. My customers all like the essential oils, and the rosemary shampoo, it just seems to make their day. I am glad that I found this company.

This is exactly the peppermint scent I was looking for. I was a little surprised when I opened the cap and thought there was a dropper in it, like the other bottles, so I overused it, as it poured out instead of dropping out. However, I love the scent and will purchase more (clearly I have to because I wasn't paying attention to the bottle design.:)

I found the Japanese Peppermint's scent closer to a menthol or eucalyptus and a bit on the woodsy side: not quite what I was expecting. I ended up replacing it with Peppermint Supreme which is what I expect peppermint to smell like. If you're looking for peppermint to smell like peppermint in the traditional sense, buy Peppermint Supreme instead -- a fantastic value, too!
