Botanical Name: Mentha arvensis

Main Constituents:
l-menthol: 74.51%

Plant Part: Herb

Origin: India

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colourless 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 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.
NOTICE: This product contains a component which is listed under California Proposition 65. California residents will receive this product labeled accordingly.

I prefer peppermint less sweet personally. This variety is stronger, fresher, more penetrating.

I purchased this EO for use in soap and lotion making, and it's okay. It is a peppermint smell, but not as sweet as the mentha piperita version of peppermint. I have used it in shampoo bars and body butters, and in both you can feel the peppermint tingle when you use it...it just smells a little different than the peppermint that I'm used to. I love the fact that it's organic, but I'm not quite sure I would order this particular version (mentha arvensis) of peppermint again.

This doesn't smell at all like peppermint to me. No candy cane feel at all. It smells dirty and musty. It doesn't have any of the sweetness that I love with peppermint. The Japanese one smells better, but I only have that one because of its higher menthol concentration. I was hoping for a true peppermint on this one. It did crystalize when I refridgerated it?? I have never had that before with peppermint. Will not buy again.

I love this peppermint oil, and it works very well. My only issue with the organic peppermint is it's tendency to become solid at 70 degrees (F). I still used it, but I had to warm the bottle each time. Maybe I'm the only one having this problem, and maybe it was just that particular bottle. I've never had this problem with the Peppermint Supreme. I'm still giving this oil 4 stars, because it drops fevers and soothes sore muscles, just like it should. Warming it before each use became quite an annoyance, though.

Great smell. Great therapeutic value. I like diffusing it in combination with Eucalyptus oil during cold and flu season.

Not overly sweet like some peppermints. Just pure peppermint power! Like a candy cane on steroids. My clients have notice a difference since I switch my soap oil from Supreme to the organic variety and love it! Great value for a great product! Keep up the good work ND. GO GREEN!
