Added to a massage blend, peppermint is great for soothing. Peppermint also promotes clear breathing. Diffuse or apply topically in 2-10% dilution.
Peppermint essential oil has strong minty notes with herbaceous warm undertones.
Peppermint is one of the world's oldest medicinal herbs with documented use in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.
