Description :

Peppermint oil is a must-have essential oil for your collection. This oil is refreshing, awakening, inspiring, and cooling. It is the perfect oil to keep with you when you need an energy boost, a fresh perspective, a positivity boost, or support for the digestive system. 

Peppermint oil supports healthy respiration and clear breathing and is great to freshen breath. With its cooling properties, it is wonderful to use whenever you are feeling overheated, or to provide a cooling sensation for tired muscles.  Use it in your hot chocolate or baked goods in the winter, on overheated skin in the summer, or for one of its many supportive properties all year round!

doTERRA Peppermint Oil can be used Aromatically, Topically, and Internally.  

Some ways to use doTERRA Peppermint Oil:

  • Diffuse for an energizing and awakening aroma.
  • Apply to the temples in morning when you wake up or in the afternoon when you need an energy boost. 
  • Add one or two drops to a favourite smoothie or hot chocolate recipe for a refreshing twist and to support digestive health.
  • Add 2-3 drops to recipes when baking - this is especially good in chocolate desserts, or other treats.
  • Use a drop of Peppermint oil with Lemon oil in water for a healthy, refreshing mouth rinse.
  • Take one to two drops of Peppermint essential oil in a Veggie Capsule to alleviate occasional stomach upset.
  • Add several drops to a spray bottle with water and spritz around windows and doors to keep pests away. 
  • Add a few drops to shampoo or conditioner for a stimulating head massage. 
  • Apply topically to the chest and pulse points to cool down when feeling overheated. Dilute with fractionated coconut oil as needed.
  • Dilute with fractionated coconut oil and apply topically to back of neck or muscles for relief of tension and occasional muscle aches and pains.

A few of my favourite Peppermint Oil combinations: 

  • Peppermint + Wild Orange diffused or diluted with fractionated coconut oil and applied to the temples and back of the neck for energy and focus. 
  • Peppermint + Lavender applied to the back of the neck and temples to ease feelings of tension and promote feelings of focused calm. 
  • Peppermint + Lavender + Frankincense applied topically for occasional head tension.
  • Peppermint + Lemon + Lavender are amazing together for seasonal and environmental threats. Diffuse, apply topically  to the chest, or take internally in a veggie cap (See also doTERRA TriEase Capsules). 
  • Peppermint + CHOCOLATE - Ok, chocolate is not an essential oil, but it is still considered essential to some people. Enough said.
