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.

Product Abstract:  Also known as Corn Mint, 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 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.

NOTE: We have a ‘No Return’ policy on any unsealed organic products as per our compliance with the QAI Organic Certification Program.

Great! I've been using this for 8 months now for headaches and in my homemade toothpaste, bath bombs, lotions. It is such a sweet almost sugary mint smell I LOVE it. It also blends with other oils really well!

From my recent research, this is cornmint and not actually peppermint. I feel tricked.

Wow. This was more than expected. Such a fresh and sweet smell. I LOVE it! I was going to add vanilla to make a candy cane smell, but after using it in some soap I won't be adding the vanilla. It smells beautiful just the way it is. You won't regret this purchase.

This was a wonderful scent. I used it for a candy cane sugar scrub. I love the smell straight from the bottle. I found that I had to use more than I originally thought because combined with the coconut oil I couldn't get it minty enough. Overall, I love the smell, and my next step will be using it in making lip balms.

A strong, lovely peppermint scent. I brought a 15 mL bottle to sample and immediately regret not purchasing a larger size.

Very nice scent but stays at solid state and you have to put in hot water in order to use it. It is a little inconvenient to use. That is it's only downfall.

Wonderful therapeutic EO. I use it in almost every product I make. Blended with eucalyptus relieves everyday or PMS migraines... bye, bye Tylenol or Advil. Also good for motion sickness. Highly recommended!
