Vitacost Essential Oils 100% Pure Peppermint Description
High-quality, 100% natural, pure essential oil for aromatherapy use. Peppermint oil is invigorating, energizing and stimulating.
What is Vitacost Peppermint Oil?
Vitacost Peppermint oil is a 100% pure, highly concentrated undiluted extract that’s steam-distilled from leaves of the Mentha piperita (peppermint) plant.
The main volatile components of peppermint oil are menthol and menthone. Its leaves also contain phenolic constituents including rosmarinic acid and flavonoids such as hesperidin and luteolin.
Peppermint oil is a favorite for aromatherapists due to its strong medicinal aroma. Essential oils may also be used for household purposes such as room fragrance (using a diffuser or humidifier), laundry, cleaning, dish washing and more.
Note, this product does not have a dropper insert. If the plastic seal has adhered to the bottle opening, remove it and place it back in the cap.
How does Vitacost Peppermint Oil support health?
Aromatherapy practices may include massage, inhalation, full-body bath, hand/foot bath, facial steaming, facial masks, compresses, spritzers and perfume.

1/3 cup coconut oil
1-1/2 Tbsp. beeswax beads (or pastilles)
½ Tbsp. shea butter

- Place a glass bowl on top of saucepan. Add coconut oil, beeswax beads and shea butter to bowl, stirring together.
- Keep mixture over heat, stirring occasionally, until beeswax beads are completely dissolved (about 5-7 minutes).
- Remove from heat, stir one more and let cool until mixture begins to re-solidify. Color will be slightly opaque.
