Mentha piperita

Peppermint is a hybrid of water mint and spearmint and produces a very powerful smell so a little goes a long way. This versatile essential oil can be cooling when hot or warming when cold, depending on the dose. Peppermint stimulates the limbs and eases sore areas, bringing fresh blood and energy to the body. Soothes the gut, quells gas. Diffuse to aid breathing during the cold season, or as a tonic for the mind to improve focus and alertness. Deters rats and mice, ants and other insects. Tinderbox has sourced a genuine peppermint essential oil from the Mentha piperita plant. If creating blends for a young person or sensitive skin, consider using spearmint, a milder alternative.
