Botanical Name: Mentha Piperita
This variant of Peppermint Essential Oil is Steam Distilled from Peppermint herb plants in India. It has a strong, sharp scent due to its high menthol content. It is reminiscent of slightly sweet mint used in making mentholated candies. It blends well with a lot of EOs and FOs (popular combinations are with Basil, Bergamot, Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Pine, Rosemary, Spearmint, Thyme, Lavender, Citronella, among others), and should be used sparingly else it will overpower the finished product.
Peppermint Supreme EO is a great addition in making massage oils, soaps, creams, balms, salves, and other bath & body products. It can also be used in scent diffusers.
Note: Due to the high menthol content of this EO, it may crystalize. Should this happen, place the bottle in a hot water bath and change water until it returns to its liquid state.
Cautions: This product should be diluted prior to use (can be diluted with a carrier or base oil). It can cause skin irritation to some individuals with sensitive skin therefore a patch test is recommended.
Storage & Shelf Life: Keep sealed always in dark glass containers and store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. For best results, consume or mix into finished product within 6 months of purchase.
This product is NOT EDIBLE and should not be ingested. Keep away from reach of children. If product gets in contact with eyes, wash off thoroughly with water and seek medical attention.
