PEPPERMINT OIL, USA

Latin Name:  Mentha piperita

Part of Plant:  Herb

Mentha x piperita, commonly known as Peppermint, is a flowering medicinal herb that is known for its use to make flavorings and teas.  A member of the Lamiaceae (formally Labiatae) botanical family, it is a cross between Watermint and Spearmint that is now cultivated worldwide and is even seen as an invasive plant in some areas.  

 

Peppermint essential oil with its fresh, sweet minty aroma, blends well with other mint and herbaceous oils.   It is commonly blended with Ginger and Lemon for an invigorating aroma for long car rides.  Consider blending with Grapefruit, Lemon, Rosemary, and Cardamom for a stimulating blend to start out your day.  Also, try making a blend with Lavender, Copaiba, and Roman Chamomile, and properly dilute in a lotion or carrier oil for a cooling and soothing massage after a long workout.  

 

 Usage ideas:

  • Add a few drops of essential oils to a diffuser, cotton round, or a tissue.

  • Add 5-15 drops to 1 oz. of your choice of carrier oils to make a massage oil.

For convenience on the go…

  • Properly dilute with your choice of carrier oils in a roller bottle.

  • Add up to a total of 15 drops of essential oils to a personal aromatic inhaler (aroma stick).

    Now younger than her years!

    Remy, my 9 year old black mouth cur and favorite walking buddy, highly recommends Dr. P's Doggie Drops! Since starting those she has a spring in her step and a smile on her face!

    Review of mobile website

    The website is pretty, visually, and it appears to be easy to navigate. My suggestion though, because it's infuriating to me, is that when I go to check out a specific oil, and read reviews on it, when I go back to shopping, it takes me back to the very first page of the essential oils. It is aggravating when I am down into the site by four or five pages and I get thrown back to the very beginning again. Anyway for you to fix this?

    I didn’t order online, but I did visit Crystal in the shop! Wow! What a wonderful experience!

    These are some of the oils that I purchased today from her, and I am absolutely pleased with their quality!

    I will definitely be returning to expand my collection from this amazing business!

    4 Back leg surgeries

    My 10 year old Australian Shepherd has had both back leg CCL's repaired and one leg had to have 3 surgeries. She still walks and functions, but she also askes for her CBD oil. She doesn't take it everyday, but a few times a week. I really don't know what we would do without it. Thank You so much!
