The unmistakeable scent of pure Peppermint, Peppermint Essential Oil has minty top notes, bright and fresh, with hints of camphor and grass. Refreshing, Cleansing and Cooling

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint is a fast growing perennial with herb with green stems and leaves and small white flowers. We stock two varieties of Peppermint Essential Oil, this one being the fresh scent normally associated with Peppermint, whilst the other type (Mitcham Peppermint) from a different variety of Peppermint is more reminiscent of the scent you will find in Mint Chocolates..

Peppermint derives its name from Latin and literally means "Peppery mint". Peppermint has long been associated with it's cooling effects and this is a result of the high menthone level which is found naturally within Peppermint Essential Oil. As a result Peppermint Essential Oil is an excellent choice for blends and skincare products which aim to cool the body and provide refreshment.


Minty top notes, which are bright and fresh. Hints of camphor and grass fill the undertones and the association with cool is evident in the scent. 

Peppermint was traditionally used as a digestive aid thousands of years away and was used around living environments to chase rats away.

Peppermint is comonly used as a stimulant, antiseptic, tonic, apasmolytic and carmantive. When combined in shampoos and conditioners it can have deodorant, purifying, refreshing and anti-itching properties.

Oils to Blend with

Peppermint can be used with many essential oil. Our favourite in a lot of blends is Lavender; two oils which would seem to contradict one another but instead work in absolutely synergy. As well as this Peppermint blends well with Benzoin, Cedarwood, Cypress, Mandarin, Marjoram, Niouli, Rosemary and Pine.
