Peppermint Oil

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) oil is steamed from the green leaves of this minty hybrid – the child of water mint and spearmint. Indigenous to Europe and the Middle East, the antiseptic, regenerative and stimulating qualities can treat dandruff and sooth irritated skin. The fresh, cool, distinctive aroma doesn’t just make great gum and toothpaste, but can boost mind and mood and even relieve tension and headaches.
