  • About The Oil

  • Safety/Caution
  • Mentha piperita, also known as 'candy mint', was once thought to be a species, but has been found to be a perennial hybrid that only proliferates by spreading its rhizomes underground. A very hearty fast-growing herb, it can grow anywhere. It has reddish veins and lightly fuzzy leaves, and its interesting chromosome count can vary between 66 and 120 chromosomes. Peppermint's name has its roots in Greek mythology. Hades, god of the dead, pursued the beautiful nymph, Minthe. Hades' wife, Persephone, became jealous and turned Minthe into a small and insignificant plant on which to be trampled. Pluto could not undo the transformation, but ensured that Minthe would always be loved for her fragrant aroma. Peppermint is used as a flavouring agent in the food industry, and in soaps, candles and toiletries.
  • Botanical Name: Mentha Piperita

    Main Constituents:
    L-Menthol: 28 - 40%
    L-Menthone: 18 - 25%

    Plant Part: Herb

    Origin: India

    Processing Method: Steam Distilled

    Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colorless to pale yellow liquid.

    Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note with a strong aroma, Peppermint has a sharp, penetrating scent based on its high menthol content. The minty sweetness of the vapor makes it one of the most popular Essential Oils.

    Note: Because of the very high menthol content of this oil, it may crystalize. If so, we would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to its liquid state, then gently agitate before use.

  • Cautions: Dilute very well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Happy with Jojoba

very happy with the purchase, arrived as indicated,

Excellent quality

Lovely scent of lavender and beautiful colour. Will order again.

Very smooth

Very nice size and quality; I liked that there were some pebble sized pieces along with the larger chunks. Although it didn’t have that deep cocoa smell I expected, it melts nicely, and sets up and stays that way.
