    Purchase Peppermint essential oil (Yakima)

    Botanical Name: Mentha piperita

    Plant Part: Leaf

    Country of Origin: USA

    Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation

    This oil is distilled from peppermint grown in Yakima, Washington, one of the highest quality peppermint oils found in the marketplace.

    Its aroma is refreshing, minty and very herbaceous. Among its known properties are: Cooling, analgesic, antispasmodic, anesthetic, decongestant, emmenagogue, expectorant, febrifuge, insecticide and stimulant. Should be kept away from eyes, likely to irritate skin and mucous membranes. Best avoided by pregnant women and nursing mothers as it could discourage flow of milk. May antidote homeopathic remedies.

    Helps people become clear headed and refreshes the spirit. Helpful for people who are unable to concentrate or who have mental fatigue. Said to relieve states of anger, hysteria and nervous trembling, excellent for depression.

    On the body, it has a dual action....cooling when hot and warming when cold. As a remedy for colds, it halts mucous and fevers and encourages perspiration. Extremely important for its effect on the digestive system (some users recommend 1 drop on a sugar cube or on a teaspoon of honey).

    Has a slightly anesthetic effect on stomach muscles. Good for travel sickness, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, colic, nausea and to keep drivers alert while on the road. Its cooling and pain relieving action seems to ease headaches, migraines and toothaches. Used in liniments for the relief of muscle pain, lumbago, bruises, joint pain and insect bites. Can be used to relieve any kind of skin irritation or itching but should be used in a dilution of 1% or less or the irritation could be made worse. Not much liked by insects and vermin, great for getting rid of ants and rodents. Blends well with cedarwood, cypress, lavender, niaouli and pine. Flash point: 151 F. OK to ship via air or ocean.

    I am using this to make mouthwash and prefer the taste of this peppermint EO over others. It seems to be a little sweeter and smoother while still being very strong.
    I truly love this peppermint from Yakima. One its USA grown & two its that soft delicate mint scent that you taste in those old fashioned soft peppermint sticks you use to get in a box. This so reminds me of my grandfather when I was small & those treasured mint sticks he would give me to gobble up! Ive used it for sinus issues & headaches & it has worked wonderfully. Id love to also get a peppermint oil that has that knock you down mint scent & strong strong tingle effect for muscle rubs. However Im keeping this around always. Its a high quality oil that works wonderfully & gives me a little of my Grandpa back too. :0)
    Bought one pound and it was great! Very strong scent!
    Best scent ever. Not to mention I love it to soothe my achy muscles. I use this in everything and adore it!!!
    Back for more!
    I bought 1oz. of this and I'm back for more! This is the strongest peppermint EO I've found. Love it!
    More ways to use this oil than I knew of
    My plan was to make a hair treatment with this oil, but have yet to get to that (because I have cooked up a few recipes with other ingredients such as Rosemary). Meanwhile, I have found out that there are lots of good ways to use peppermint oil. I have made a super simple yet wonderful mouthwash with water, peppermint EO, and glycerin. After rinsing with it you'll feel like you have just stuffed a whole pack of doublemint gum in your mouth. The mouthwash is all natural, crisp, refreshing, and best of all, kills all the germs. Very little of the EO is needed to make the mouthwash, so it saves me quite a bit of money because now I won't be spending $7 a month on Listerin.
    Love this mint!
    This is a sweet, gentle mint. It's not harsh at all and even neat, there's no burning eye sensation from the fumes. Made a great shampoo bar with it, and a few drops on a cotton ball is great for keeping mice out of your supplies ;).
    Good Peppermint
    Its a little different than another peppermint I have on hand. It is about 3/4 as strong as another but yes, sweeter. I agree with the other reviewer. You might want to increase the amount of peppermint if a strong scent is desired but for a peppermint candy type, this is just right.
    Sweet and Minty!
    This is by far the sweetest smelling peppermint oil we've ever had! It has all the cool tingly minty properties you'd expect from an essential oil, but the sweetness is an unexpected bonus. Works perfectly for lip balm and one of our best-selling soaps.
    Recommend it!
    This is the sweetest peppermint oil I've ever come across in over 20 years of aromatherapy. It has no 'bite' or harsh undertone as so many peppermint oils do. This is the only oil I'll be getting from now on.
