Peppermint oil is steam distilled from the fresh leaves of Mentha piperita. Discoveries prove that peppermint has been used since ancient times in Egypt, Greece and Rome, to crown the Greeks and Romans, and has been used medicinally in England for centuries. The minty-fresh fragrance of Peppermint essential oil is universally recognised and appreciated. Inhaling a few drops on a tissue is reviving, and is an aid to concentration. This is also useful for clearing sinuses, travel sickness and jet lag. Peppermint offers cooling and relaxing properties, with a familiar, sweet, cool aroma that seems to penetrate airways, helping to clear and soothe. In aromatherapy it is used to help focus, and increase concentration, relaxing and calming a busy, stressed mind. It is a useful muscle relaxant that can be used to relieve stiff and aching muscles and joints and is often used in sports therapy. Aromatic Description: Sweet, citrus Plant Part: Flowering herb Source: China Extraction method: Steam distillation How to use essential oils Massage – Both body and facial massage can benefit from the intoxicating aroma of essential oils. Always ensure that you add the essential oil to a carrier oil first, and never apply directly to your skin. A carrier oil, also known as base oil, is used to dilute essential oils before they applied to the skin. Bathing – There is no better way to unwind than in an essential oil bath, calming oils like Lavender and Clary Sage are especially relaxing. Add 5-10 drops in a bath and disperse vigorously before entering the bath. Steam inhalation – This is a really good way of helping to relieve blocked sinuses or congestion. Eucalyptus is one of the most popular oils for this. Fill a large bowl with hot (not boiling water), add 3-4 drops of your chosen oil then lean over the bowl plac
