“The peppermint personality is difficult to forget. Some may find them brash and overpowering. They have a fearless spirit and are swift and quick thinkers. They are friendly people who are concerned about the fate of others. Whatever work they take on, they are always dynamic and get totally involved.” (Worwood V. The fragrant mind. Doubleday, Great Britain, 1995.)
Mentha piperita is a perennial herbaceous plant reaching a height up to 3 ft. It has smooth, quadrangular upright stems that branch towards the top. The plant forms an abundant carpet of oval, serrated, deep-green colored leaves. The flowers are spike shaped and usually purple in color. Peppermint Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the plant. The color of the oil is pale yellow or pale olive. The Oil has a strong, penetrating, grassy, minty, camphor-like aroma.
The peppermint essential oil produced in England has traditionally been the very finest available and is derived from a variety known as Mitcham (Mentha piperta forma rubescens), having been named after the area in Surrey where it was originally produced, Mitcham.

Whenever you use Essential Oils or 100% pure Essential Oil Blends on the skin, they should be diluted in a vegetable oil. However, always check for skin sensitivity before applying the finished product to the body. See “Cautions” below.
Suggested Dilution Rates follow:
Please ensure that the total number of drops does not exceed the dilution ratio. For example: 2.5% dilution = 1 drip Geranium, 2 drops Palmarosa & 2 drops Mandarin diluted in 10ml Jojoba Oil. Total drops = 5
Peppermint is non-toxic. It is not a skin irritant. It may occasionally cause skin sensitization. It is not phototoxic. Peppermint Oil should not be used on the face, particularly the nose, of infants and small children. (Bataglia S. The complete guide to aromatherapy. The International Centre for Aromatherapy, Brisbane, Australia, 2nd Edition, 1997, AUS)
The Aromatherapy Place does not recommend ingesting essential oils unless a specific dosage instruction is given to a consumer by a qualified medical practitioner.
Do not apply directly to skin. May case skin sensitization in some individuals. Always dilute with a carrier oil. A skin test is recommended prior to use on the skin.
Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use. Keep away from eyes and mucous membranes.
Please check with a professional for safe essential oils to use with children or the elderly. Do not use essential oils on a child younger than two years without professional advice.
We recommended that Essential Oils or 100% pure and natural Blends be stored in amber or cobalt blue glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life. Keep away from excessive heat and light. A bathroom, bedroom or kitchen cabinet should be a good storage location.
