Peppermint Essential Oil
What is the Genus Species? Mentha piperita
Why is this information important? The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint first noted in 1753. CPTG peppermint oil has a high menthol content.
What part of the plant is used? the whole plant is used in stem distillation.
What are the Plant Properties? Uplifting, energizing yet soothing.
What is the Aromatic Affect on the Mind? Aromatic scent is fresh and cool.
What is the Spiritual Influence? Small amounts of peppermint essential oils can cleanse the spiritual bodies and increase attunement with the soul so that intuitive awareness increases. Fears may also be minimized, especially those having to do with motion (riding, skiing, and flying).
This is particularly good oil when there is resistance to learn a new subject or to move in a new direction. It cools and calms the mind and eliminates the fear of the unknown.
How do I use it?
Dilute 50:50 or more (one part essential oil: one part of fractionated coconut oil), and then,
- Apply several drops (2-4) on location, abdomen and temples
- Take internally in water, food (like brownies, hello?!), or in a veggie cap (only use CPTG essential oils when taking internally)
- Directly inhale
What are the Safety Precautions? First, only use therapeutic grade essential oils! Peppermint essential oil is Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS). It is approved by the FDA for use as a Food Additive (FA).
Do not put peppermint oil in your eyes! I learned this lesson the hard way! If you do get it in your eyes, use fractionated coconut oil to get it out. Trying to wash it out with water will only make it worse.
Could cause possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children and do not use on children under the age of 6. . If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
