Description: Peppermint essential oil is obtained from the flowering plant of Peppermint (Mentha spicata) through steam distillation. The yield of essential oil from the plant material is about 0.7%.

Special Characteristics: Peppermint essential oil is a colorless to yellowish liquid. It has a fresh-cool aroma accompanied by hints of cumin. It easily dissolves in alcohol (1:1.5, ethanol 80%), vegetable oils, and other essential oils, while it is almost insoluble in water. The main component is (R)-carvone, with smaller concentrations of limonene and linalool.

Applications: The components of peppermint essential oil also possess medicinal characteristics. As a non-cooling essential oil, peppermint is suitable for treating colds. It works against acute and chronic bronchitis and acts as an expectorant when applied through inhalation or as a bath oil. Peppermint essential oil also facilitates digestion and bile flow, making it useful for gastritis, nausea, abdominal massage in the bladder area, circulatory issues, localized application, or in bath oil. For wounds and injuries, peppermint essential oil can promote wound healing through its epithelial properties when used as massage oil or bath oil. In case of itching, peppermint essential oil can be used as a balm or oil to prevent inflammation of the affected areas.

In aromatherapy, peppermint essential oil is used for its balancing and soothing effects. For mental and physical exhaustion, symptoms related to stress and general tension, peppermint essential oil can be used as a room fragrance, massage oil, bath oil, or in an aromatherapy bottle. Even in cases of memory loss and lack of concentration, peppermint essential oil is the ideal solution.

CAUTION: ALWAYS use diluted in a base oil or other solvent.
