EcoOils PEPPERMINT OIL
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is one of the most useful and beloved essential oils. Refreshing, cooling, uplifting, and restoring, peppermint has a variety of therapeutic uses. It is known for its profound effect on digestive system and as a powerful antispasmodic. Steam Distilled Peppermint essential oil is far more concentrated than most steam distilled oils! (A little goes a long way!) Peppermint has endless physical and emotional benefits, and it is an extremely strong healer and stimulant! Peppermint essential oil contains a high amount of menthol, which produces a cooling sensation by which the body reacts by creating a warming effect when inhaled. When the oil is placed topically on the body, the menthol causes the body to increase blood flow for an even more powerful stimulating and warming effect.
