Posted by Zongle Therapeutics on

Whether one is familiar with essential oils or not, peppermint has been a part of their lives in some shape or form. There’s no question that the characteristic cooling sensation it produces is both appealing and therapeutic. Peppermint Oil is the most versatile essential oil out there. This oil can be used aromatically, topically as well as internally to provide an array of benefits from soothing muscles to boosting energy- This oil has it all!

Not only is peppermint oil one of the oldest European herbs, other historical accounts date its use to ancient Japanese and Chinese folklore.

Peppermint is a combination or cross of two plants watermint and spearmint. The essential oils are gathered through steam distillation of the fresh aerial parts of the flowering plant. The most active ingredient is menthol, that contributes to the overall energizing effect of Peppermint oil. 

Oil Profile

Peppermint oil has thin consistency and is mostly clear with a tinge of yellow. The steam-distilled version has an intense minty aroma, more than the spearmint variety. Soothing, cool, and refreshing, peppermint oil smells great and offers many health benefits.

 At low dilutions, it is fresh, minty and quite uplifting. It’s a favorite around Christmas and the holidays but is also popular the whole year round.
