📕 BACK STORY

Historically, peppermint has been used for its medicinal properties since ancient times, with evidence of its use dating back to Egyptian, Greek, and Roman civilizations. Peppermint was valued for its digestive and calming benefits, often used in teas and remedies to soothe stomach ailments and headaches.

In the 18th century, peppermint oil began to be commercially produced in England, marking its importance in the herbal medicine market. Its cooling, refreshing properties made it popular in aromatherapy and personal care products.

This essential oil is a product of meticulous steam distillation of 1 pound of peppermint leaves and stems, emphasizing Young Living's commitment to quality and purity. The plant is grown and distilled in North America, the Mediterranean area, and Great Britain.

The oil is celebrated for its cooling effect on fatigued muscles after physical activity and its ability to create a focused environment when diffused. It's also appreciated for the refreshing experience it provides when mixed with shampoo or applied to the skin after being in the sun. Moreover, inhaling peppermint essential oil or applying it topically can produce an invigorating sensation, making it a versatile addition to wellness routines.

Young Living's peppermint oil is included in several of their proprietary blends, including PanAway®, Cool Azul® Pain Relief Cream, and Deep Relief™ Roll-On, showcasing its broad utility in enhancing physical and mental well-being.

Peppermint is a key ingredient in PanAway®, AromaEase®, Aroma Siez™, Relieve It™, and Deep Relief™ Roll-On essential oil blends.
