 Peppermint Oil Benefits

What is peppermint oil? Peppermint oil is a hybrid species of spearmint and water mint. This oil is gathered by CO2 or extraction of the fresh aerial parts of the flowering plant. This oil is made up of menthol and menthone, providing many different benefits to humans. Peppermint oil is very versatile in the way that it can be used aromatically, topically, and internally.

  • Precautions, Side Effects, and Interactions:

When using peppermint oil directly on sensitive skin, make sure you are diluting it with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) first to prevent skin irritation. When adding peppermint oil to drinks, only use 1-2 drops or the oil may become toxic and do more harm than good. Keep in mind these precautions so that peppermint oil only provides you with benefits and doesn't cause any abnormal interactions.
