The presence of menthol in peppermint essential oil gives it a vibrant, refreshing and revitalizing aroma that is unmistakable! It is great for days when a boost of mental clarity, energy and sharp senses are needed. It is a perfect travel companion blended with citrus oils to calm discomfort from queasiness. It is interestingly cooling on skin but becomes warming in higher concentrations. A staple in most collections. A classic favorite.
