Common uses- THIS! Is a refreshing, not too sweet, crisp USA peppermint from Willamette County. We are bringing this old favorite back as our "stock" peppermint.
Peppermint is a staple to every oil lover. In Battaglia's book, references for peppermint include: topical uses for pain, one of the most effective oils for tension headaches, soothing to smooth muscle tissue and helpful for spasmodic digestive issues, nausea, flatulence, travel sickness.
Refreshing and helpful in lymphatic tissues, moves body fluids. Try a few sniffs for mental fatigue, and clear your nose too! To clear and freshen the mind, blend with chamomile and lavender for headaches. Add 1-2 drops to your favorite carrier oil for a refreshing and invigorating foot rub!
Aroma — This is my personal favorite for peppermint aroma. Smoother, with more depth, not a sweet, but still crisp, minty fresh and bright.
Energetic — Peppermint is both warming and cooling energetically. Emotionally it enhances concentration — and helpful when insight and inspiration are needed. (Mojay)
