Peppermint essential oil comes from a hybrid of mint plants. This particular type of Peppermint oil has a very strong aroma, making it ideal for use in aromatherapy practice and fragrances.
The medicinal properties of Peppermint have been documented for many years, with emphasis as a reliever for the symptoms of coughs and colds and as a natural decongestant. It also has benefits when treating IBS and digestive complaints and can be massaged in to the stomach to sooth indigestion and bloating.
Peppermint's unique fragrance is also very clearing to the mind. Including a few drops in a vaporisation blend will help to sharpen concentration and focus a busy brain.
