Some information about peppermint
Mint is a very common plant of which there are many varieties. Peppermint is one of the many hybrids (therefore sterile) that we find. It comes from a cross between spearmint and water mint. It is cultivated among others in Europe and the United States. France produces little of it, but it is of remarkable quality. Mint is used as a flavoring agent for drinks or teas, an ingredient in dishes and desserts and a raw material for perfumery and dentistry. Peppermint essential oil is nearly colorless and has a powerful, penetrating, fresh and spicy scent. The whole plant is distilled. Peppermint needs 16 hours of daylight to flower.
Its powerful fragrance with a strong camphor flavor goes well with eucalyptus, lavender, lemon and rosemary. Stimulating neurotonic thanks to the presence of menthol, it will awaken and clear the mind, relieve you of intellectual fatigue, stress and depression. In addition, the presence of menthol in this essential oil will bring a feeling of freshness, a pleasant smell and a recognized antibacterial action.
Note : Do not diffuse pure Peppermint essential oil. Prefer to dilute it between 10 and 15% with other essential oils. Pregnant women over 3 months can use it in diluted atmospheric diffusion.

100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
