The aroma of Peppermint Essential Oil is familiar and pleasant to most. Peppermint Oil is very intense and is far more concentrated than most other steam distilled essential oils. At low dilutions, it is fresh, minty and quite uplifting. It s a favorite around Christmas and the holidays, but is also popular year round.

Peppermint Essential Oil contains menthol. Menthol induces a cooling sensation, and use of Peppermint Oil (at low dilution) in a body mist or even in the diffuser can help to cool you down. Menthol is also known to help ease tension headaches and muscular aches and pains.

If you find Peppermint Oil to be a bit too intense, you may enjoy working with Spearmint Oil. Often, I substitute Spearmint Essential Oil for some of the Peppermint Essential Oil in a blend. Emotionally, Peppermint Essential Oil is stimulating and is a good choice for inclusion in blends intended to help enhance alertness and stamina. It is considered an aphrodisiac. Peppermint should be avoided before bedtime.

Cornmint Essential Oil is sometimes passed off as Peppermint Oil, so it is important to be careful of where you procure your oil.
