Aura Cacia Organic Pure Aromatherapy Oil Peppermint Description
"Peppermint (Mentha piperita) oil is the second most popular essential oil in the United States, following lavender. It is cooling to the skin and gives off a fresh, grassy aroma. Aura Cacia Peppermint Essential Oil comes from the prominent Yakima valley in Washington state.
Peppermint is believed to be native to the Mediterranean region, although the actual origin is uncertain. The crossing of its two, parent species — mentha and peperita — occurred in the wild.
Quick use: Add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to aloe vera gel for a post-sun cooling skin care oil.
