PEPPERMINT OIL - 120ml
"Ahhhh…the refreshing and stimulating scent of peppermint! ArtNaturals’ Peppermint Essential Oil, used as directed, can calm indigestion, relieve sinus congestion and headaches, and rev up energy levels. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it excellent for use with a carrier oil to massage tired, achy muscles. And bugs and insects don’t like it, so it’s also a powerful, toxin-free deterrent. We bring the healing powers of peppermint to you in a 100-percent all-natural oil. Mixed with carrier oils and topically applied, peppermint oil aids in soothing headaches and migraines, sore muscles and indigestion. Used in a diffuser, vaporizer or humidifier, its aromatherapy benefits help relieve colds and congestion, along with calming stress and anxiety and supporting a healthy immune system. The fragrant aroma, so appealing to humans, naturally repels insect invaders. Peppermint's unique healing and soothing properties are due in part to its unique genetic makeup. A cross between watermint and spearmint, peppermint is historically native to Europe, but has been used all over the world for centuries as a popular treatment for a variety of ailments. This impressively long list of healing powers has given peppermint the title of “world's oldest medicine.” Mix with a carrier oil, such as coconut or jojoba, for application on your skin, or fill the air will a rejuvenating scent by adding a few drops into your diffuser."
