Peppermint essential oil is one of the most commonly used botanicals in traditional aromatherapy. It is highly versatile, and is used in a huge variety of consumer products, including gum, food, shampoo, and other products.

 

Ancient Romans and Greeks used peppermint in both their food and in various religious ceremonies, including worship, marriage, and passing celebrations.

 

Modern peppermint (Mentha x piperita cultivar ‘Willamette’) production began and continues in New York, USA around the late 1700s.

 

Peppermint boasts a wide range of benefits, including:

 

Muscle relaxant and pain relief

 

Peppermint’s dominant constituent (terpene) is Menthone, comprising between 17-25% of the total makeup of the processed essential oil. Used throughout history as an all-natural pain killer and muscle relaxant, this botanical is present in many over-the-counter medicines today in the form of liquid and rubs.

 

Clears Sinuses

Menthol is a natural sinus clearing agent that acts nearly immediately due to its expectorant and anti-inflammatory qualities.

 

Digestive Health

Peppermint has been found to be a safe and effective short term treatment for irritable bowel syndome.
