Organic Peppermint Essential Oil: Uses, Benefits, and Blends

If you’ve never experienced the tingling sensation of organic peppermint essential oil, get ready to be invigorated. The menthol in peppermint offers a unique cooling sensation that will leave your senses feeling alive. This same cooling sensation can also work as an analgesic, helping to combat pain from sore muscles and headaches. Try adding a burst of peppermint oil to your daily routine to start the day refreshed and energized.

Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Product Details

You are likely very familiar with the herb peppermint, but did you know it was a hybrid? Yep! Peppermint is a cross between two other plants in the Lamiaceae family (the mint family): spearmint and water mint! As a hybrid, peppermint is considered to be a sterile plant, which means it does not spread seeds. Instead, it grows new plants off of different parts of the old plant. This organic peppermint essential oil is made up of 35.5% menthol, which offers a pain-numbing, cooling effect. In traditional medicine, peppermint oil is often in use to help with pain relief from headaches, sore muscles, and other minor ailments. It is also popular with organic gardeners, as the menthol can help to repel rodents, wasps, and other uninvited guests. 

Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Benefits: Component Breakdown

  • L-Menthol (35.5%): Menthol occurs naturally in plants of the mint family, or it can also be produced synthetically. In medicine, it is considered to be a local anesthetic, as well as an anti-irritant. It also is what gives peppermint its traditional peppermint taste and aroma, which is why you will also see menthol in use as a flavoring agent in many different foods, products, and beverages.
  • Menthofuran (3.6%): Menthofuran is an organic plant compound, classified as a monoterpenoid.

Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Uses: For Wholesale Purposes

Headaches

If you suffer from regular migraines or headaches, organic peppermint essential oil can be a great alternative to your usual painkillers. The menthol in peppermint acts as an analgesic, helping to numb pain. The easiest way to apply it is through an ointment or roller bottle. Keep reading for an easy DIY rollerball blend to get quick relief from head pain!

Peppermint Essential Oil for Scalp & Hair 

Organic peppermint essential oil acts as a vasodilator, due to the presence of menthol. This means it helps to promote blood flow, increasing circulation. Using diluted peppermint oil on your scalp can help get blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the hair follicles, making them bigger and stronger. This leads to faster-growing, thicker, longer hair. As peppermint is also an antifungal, it can also help to prevent issues such as dandruff and itching on your scalp. 

Soap Making 

Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Soap Making

Adding organic peppermint essential oil to your soap or shower gels can offer a delicious kick to start your morning. The cooling, tingling sensation of menthol will awake all your senses, and the antibacterial properties of peppermint will leave you feeling fresh and clean. The aroma is minty and bright, creating soaps that are great for both men and women.

DIY Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Headache Relief Rollerball

For this easy to make blend you will need the following materials:

Add the essential oils to the rollerball, and then top up with the carrier oil of your choice. Tip it back and forth and shake a few times to thoroughly combine, then roll onto temples, back of the neck, or wherever you need relief. As the menthol offers a cooling sensation be careful not to apply to near the eyes, as it can cause burning.

Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Blends: Best Suitable Oils

Peppermint blends well with lavender, rosemary, thyme, and citrus oils such as lemon, lime, and grapefruit. You can also pair it with more woodsy essential oils, such as balsam fir or cedarwood, for a more masculine effect. 

Precautions

Though there are specific peppermint capsules that are intended to take orally, organic peppermint essential oil should not be ingested. This is because of its high concentration. Certain ingredients in peppermint oil are highly toxic to pets and should be kept out of the way of them as well as small children. If you wish to use peppermint oil topically, ensure that you follow correct dilution guidelines to ensure no skin irritation or reaction. 

Conclusion

With its fresh, invigorating aroma, organic peppermint essential oil is great for DIY hygiene products like soaps and shower gels. Furthermore, its analgesic properties make it great for fast relief of headache and muscle pain when diluted and applied topically. As with any essential oil, always take care to never ingest or get it near your eyes, and keep away from small children and pets.

Delightfully strong peppermint oil

I ordered this not for hair growth, but for pest control - stink bugs love my house, but don't like the scent of peppermint. As I prefer to let them go elsewhere rather than **** them, I really like this option. As expected with essential oils, especially a mint variety, it's delightfully potent in a tiny bottle. A few drops will go a long way in a dish or with reeds to dissuade the otherwise adorable armored insects.

Strong peppermint oil.

This peppermint oil seems to be of great quality. The scent is very strong and intense. I use peppermint oil for so many things, from making mouthwashes, to adding it to my baths, to freshening up my garbage disposal with it. This oil does not disappoint!

Good For Allergy Relief...

I used this in my air purifier as well as my house filter. I have bad allergies and peppermint helps me find relief. I also add it to my coconut shampoo It helps my itchy scalp with its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It has a nice clean peppermint scent that is not overwhelming. I recommend this brand.

I'm using this is my diffuser

It's not overly strong, it smells very strong during the unboxing, but mixing it with water for my diffuser diluted it a lot, I tested it directly in my wax warmer and it's very strong, but it burns too fast with the 25W bulbs that my warmer carries so I'll buy 5W bulbs for this oil. I love the scent and I'm currently using it at nights while I sleep, I added a small amount in my concoction for my natural hair, and it feels great on the scalp
