Background

Mentha piperita or Peppermint is a perennial plant that can grow up to 30-90 cm in height. It bears beautiful purple coloured four-lobed corolla flower, framed in dark green leaves with red veins. The Peppermint plant is native to some European, Middle East, and Asian Countries, but due to its wide popularity and demand, it is grown in almost every part of the world.

Since ancient times, Peppermint has been a cherished plant among Chinese and Japanese people because of its uses in their traditional medicine practices. Its dried leaves were found in pyramids of Egypt. These leaves were believed to make afterlife pleasant. The impact of Peppermint’s fragrance has been mentioned in Greek mythology as the story of a nymph named Mentha. Even at present, Peppermint oil is one of the most used essential oils in the world, second only to Lavender.

General Information

Ecodrop’s Organic Peppermint essential oil is extracted from the leaves of Mentha piperita, grown organically in the temperate regions of India, certified under UK Soil Association Organic Standards. For obtaining the optimal quality of oil, plants are grown in partial sunlight or half-shade environment. The leaves of Peppermint contain the highest concentration of the oil at a time when flowers had just bloomed, and cover not more than 10% of the plantations. During this time, fresh leaves are handpicked and sent for extraction of oil by the steam distillation process.

BENEFITS AND USES

Uses

Aromatherapy: This piercing fragrance stimulates the brain, increases focus, and enhances mental function.

Skincare: Peppermint oil’s astringent property works wonders for the skin by repairing damaged cells, opening pores, improving skin tone, and making you look younger.

Haircare: Peppermint oil stimulates the scalp, thus greatly promoting hair growth. It treats scalp inflammation and dryness and presents a natural way to kill lice.

Disinfectant: As a natural sanitiser, this antimicrobial oil not only cleans but also leaves a pleasant fragrance afterwards. It’s a great house cleaner that discourages insects and mites from entering your place.

Pain management: A few drops on wounds can greatly reduce the burning sensation from cuts or burns. It not only numbs the pain receptors but also promotes faster healing.

Directions

Beauty products: Add 3-4 drops to creams, lotions, hair oils, shampoo, conditioners, hand creams, and other beauty products.

Diffusion:Add 4-5 drops to your diffuser. Optionally, combine with an equal amount of Eucalyptus oil.

Scalp massage: Blend 3 drops of Peppermint and 3 drops of Rosemary oil in coconut or olive oil. Massage your scalp and hair twice a week for healthy long, lustrous hair.

DIY lip balm: Make a refreshing lip balm with beeswax, jojoba oil, and 7-8 drops of Peppermint oil. Refer to our ebook for the complete recipe. This lip balm will also leave a cooling sensation on the lips.

Pain relief massage: For migraine headaches, massage 2-3 drops directly on the forehead. For menstrual and muscle pain, add 5-6 drops to 10 ml of sesame oil and massage the affected area.

    Rats and Other Uses – Dare I say I initially used it for keeping rats at bay. I read that rats hate peppermint. Putting a few drops on cotton wool balls and place them is strategic points should do the trick. I have tried it and to date there is no trace of ratty in the garden. The strength is very powerful and only a few drops are needed. I am sure I will also use the oil for headaches and general stress. Today I out a few drops in the solar water fountain. This was lovely and refreshing when sat close by.

    Organic Peppermint – I am no essential oil expert but the smell is amazing. I have actually bought this to humanely repel spiders, as around this time of the year I get big monster ones (known to most people as large house spiders!). I am hoping this does the trick, so for anyone using this for insect purposes, rather than holistic/wellbeing, I will give an update in around a months time!

    Delivery was great, this actually arrived 2 days ahead of predicted delivery date.

  • Emma Buffett

    Smells lovely, undetermined effect on spiders – I bought this to try and dissuade spiders from coming into my flat. I combined it with water and sprayed it around the doors and windows. So far I haven’t had any new spiders in the flat but that might just be because I haven’t had the windows/doors open. It does smell amazing though, whatever you want to use it for.

  • Beaconshill

    Great value – Arrived quickly; product as described. This oil is ethically-sourced and fully certified; gives confidence in product. I use with Rosemary oil in a Jojoba oil base as a hair revitaliser. You also get a free 73-page book detailing the benefits of Aromatherapy, info on the various essential oils available, and instructions on how to use them. Great value and would definitely recommend.
