What is it?


Peppermint oil is native to Japan: also known as ‘mentha arvensis’ and is found in countless U.S. household products. It has a high concentration of natural pesticides, one in particular is menthone. This yellow oil is steam distilled directly from the herb and although it is most commonly found in liquid form, it can also be seen in capsules or tablets in many health food stores. Peppermint oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A, C, minerals, manganese, iron, calcium, magnesium, folate, copper and potassium.


Peppermint Oil has been used for centuries in many ways that have benefitted mankind. Extensive research in recent years has only supported the time honored uses of peppermint and it is through its fantastic benefits that it has become an essential item for any health advocate. The historical uses and research done on the benefits of it all have come to the conclusion that peppermint is one of the most naturally beneficial plants in the world.

 

The History of Peppermint Oil

The history and uses of peppermint oil have been dated back to 1000 B.C in Egypt as well as ancient Asia. Early Egyptian, Chinese and Japanese cultures used peppermint plants and oils for their healing and restorative properties and in Greek mythology, it is said that the god Hades/Pluto transformed a nymph into the peppermint plant. Today the plant’s scientific name is still titled after the nymph, being called Mentha Piperita. 

Although it has been used throughout the world, the peppermint plant is a native to the Mediterranean and can most prominently be found in gardens in North American and European Countries. Commonly referred to as the world’s oldest medicine, this cross between a spearmint and water mint plant is used in soaps, shampoos, ice cream and toothpaste as well as used for medical reasons.

 

 

The Benefits and Uses

Peppermint oil has been used for medical purposes as well as in different industries for centuries but until recently, the positive qualities hadn’t been measured. Once scientists took the initiative to research the properties of it, they found conclusive evidence that matched with the wise instruction of the medicine men of the past. Today, health care physicians recommend peppermint oil to patients suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS,) indigestion, heart burn and nausea amongst other physical ailments.

 

As a Natural Health Supplement

This yellow and potent oil is made up of strong A and C vitamins as well as healthy mineral supplements of iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, omega 3 fatty acids, calcium and copper. This makes it a natural health supplement that combats symptoms of illness such as an upset stomach, a blocked respiratory tract, headaches, stress and pain. 

For those suffering from an upset stomach, it relieves gas and spasms for the stomach and can be easily incorporated into a diet by adding a few drops of the oil into a glass of water. The strong menthol found in peppermint oil also instantly clears a respiratory tract of back up and blockage. Many people use it to combat colds, asthma and more serious illnesses such as bronchitis. 
To relieve headaches and pain, it also acts to revitalize the body and block stress and headaches from occurring.

 

For Health Vitality

The vitality of spirit and health that is rejuvenated through peppermint oil is astounding. Peppermint baths and scents are said to relax the user and lower their stress levels while the health benefits include opening air passages and headache relief. Energy and alertness can be achieved by a simple drop of oil under the tongue. Also, it is said to boost concentration and clarity for those looking to feel better naturally.

Natural peppermint sprays provide the alert and medical benefits while leaving a home clean, bug free and smelling wonderful. Check out our blog for creative uses for peppermint essential oil. 

 

For Hair and Skin Care

Peppermint deters lice and dandruff while providing a tingling and cooling sensation to the hair follicle on the head. This promotes hair growth as well as balances the PH levels on the head for healthy and shiny hair. Not to mention the invigorating sensation that this all natural oil will bring to your daily routine. 

or skin care, it tends to decrease the production of oil, resulting in less oily and clearer skin for the user. Working with its added health benefits, peppermint oil is ideal for those seeking to look and feel their best naturally.

 

Recent Research 

Italian researchers in 2007 found conclusive evidence that peppermint oil, when given in the form of capsules to IBS patients, is a natural cure for stomach health problems. 78% percent of the study’s patients who were given the capsules reported health increase and a large decrease in the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome over a four week period. Iranian studies in 2011 found evidence that concurred with the 2007 Italian research and in 2011, it was found that peppermint oil flows through an anti-pain channel called TRPM8, which assists in the relaxation and pain relief that peppermint oil provides. 

Thousands of people throughout the world have seen and felt the firsthand effects of using peppermint oil and through continued research and use, it may become even further embedded into our society as a naturally healing medicine.

    Excellent product! I use this product for keeping bugs, ants and other crawling and flying creatures away... cleaning office, kitchen, bathrooms. The fresh, clean smell is antiseptic and good for respiration.

  5. Supreme peppermint EO

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Jun 2015

    I really enjoy the smell and sensation of this essential oil. It has a bit of a sweeter smell to it, which makes it more inviting instead of penetrating.


  6. Great Product Lousy Packaging

    Posted by Marie Domina on 20th Jun 2015

    Have been buying from this site for a couple years now. Love the peppermint oil. I buy Japanese because I prefer a very strong scent. I use it for mice,skin, hair, air freshener, fabric freshener, in hair products, practically everything.

    My problem is the packaging. I cant see the content of the oil in the bottle. I'd like to actually see the quantity. The large round bottle actually holds less than 16 ounces due to the girth of the bottle. Wish they change packaging and add a dropper top.

    I want to buy in bulk but now am leery of doing so due to packaging.

    It's very good oil and I use a lot so I will be a steady customer regardless.


  7. Peppermint Oil

    Posted by Shirley on 9th Jun 2015

    Very nice product. I have purchased from you before and will again. I use the peppermint oil to repel insects instead of exterminating. It works very well. I put a cotton ball in a shot glass and soak up the cotton ball with the oil. Place the glasses in each room in the corners and insects and mice won't come in. The smell is to strong for them. Refresh approx. every 6 months. You can tell when it is time as you will start to see little spiders etc. coming in. It doesn't work for mosquitoes.
