Invigorate your senses with Peppermint’s aroma or enjoy its cooling sensation on your skin. A key ingredient in PanAway®, AromaEase®, Deep Relief™ Roll-On, and other blends, Peppermint combines beautifully with other aromas.

Peppermint Vitality tastes delicious and supports healthy habits. It can support gastrointestinal system comfort, healthy bowel function, normal digestion, enhance healthy gut function, and maintain the digestive tract’s efficiency.* Plus, it may support performance during exercise!*

Use Peppermint essential oil:

  • For post-workout massage. Dilute a few drops of Peppermint in V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for a refreshing massage.
  • To diffuse. Blend with Lavender and Rosemary for an uplifting aroma.
  • In your bath or shower. Blend Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata in hot bath water and breathe in the aromatic steam. You can also add Peppermint to shampoo for a scalp-stimulating wash!
  • In your cleaning routine. Add to DIY cleaners or add a few drops to a sponge for a refreshing, clean scent.

To eliminate odor. Add a few drops of Thieves essential oil blend to your dishwasher before running.

To create an environment of peace and security. Diffuse wherever you need its comforting aroma.
