Mentha piperita

Peppermint is a hybrid of water mint and spearmint and produces a very powerful smell so a little goes a long way. This versatile essential oil can be cooling when hot or warming when cold; depending on the dose. Peppermint stimulates the limbs and eases sore areas; bringing fresh blood and energy to the body. Soothes the gut; quells gas. Diffuse to aid breathing during the cold season; or as a tonic for the mind to improve focus and alertness. Deters rats and mice; ants and other insects. Tinderbox has sourced a genuine peppermint essential oil from the Mentha piperita plant. If creating blends for a young person or sensitive skin; consider using spearmint; a milder alternative.
