Long used as a food flavoring and an aromatherapy essential oil, our peppermint oil (mentha arvensis) is steam distilled from the leaves of Japanese peppermint. It is effective in calming indigestion or stomachache by simply inhaling the scent, and can also help with headaches and migraines. Used topically, peppermint oil can be diluted and used on sore muscles. Be careful. Peppermint oil is extremely potent and should not be used undiluted on the skin, especially sensitive areas of the body.
