Peppermint Essential Oil Peppermint Essential Oil

Meet Peppermint

Crisp and cooling, peppermint essential oil is steam-distilled from the leaves of the Metha piperita plant. It can be used as a mist or body oil to provide relief during the hot summer months, or diffused in the home to increase focus and alertness. Combine with frankincense to make a relaxing massage oil for tight muscles, or with lavender for skin that was kissed by too much sun.

Where does Aura Cacia Peppermint Come From?

Aura Cacia Peppermint Essential Oil is sourced in the United States from the prominent Yakima Valley in Washington state.


What is the Difference Between Peppermint and Sweet Peppermint?

Aura Cacia Peppermint has a fresh grassy aroma that stimulates the senses and clears the mind. Aura Cacia Sweet Peppermint also comes from the Mentha piperita plant, but the essential oil is sourced in India and is distilled twice to achieve a superbly sweet, minty aroma more reminiscent of a candy cane. Both peppermint and sweet peppermint provide a cooling, refreshing experience and an invigorating boost any time of day.


You Know, We Make a Great Pair

Peppermint essential oil blends well with floral, herbal, and citrus-y oils alike, including lavender, grapefruit, eucalyptus, and rosemary.
