There are moments in life that take you back to the basics. That’s exactly how it is with dōTERRA Peppermint, a longtime best seller and staple for essential oil users everywhere. Sourced in the USA, it’s available in both the original 15 mL bottle and the conveniently diluted Peppermint Touch roll-on. Without further ado, let’s showcase everything this fan favorite has to offer!
A familiar name and scent, Peppermint has lesser known tricks up its sleeve. Invigorating and cooling, this minty aroma carries potential far beyond the typical toothpaste and mouthwash applications it automatically brings to mind. For example, did you know Peppermint can be used aromatically to help suppress appetite, assisting in the war on food cravings? Or have you considered keeping it on your bedside table so that when your morning alarm sounds, you’re energized for the day with one deep inhale?
Yes, Peppermint essential oil has a delightful cooling effect due to its high menthol concentration; but be forewarned that it quickly turns hot on sensitive skin! For topical application, make sure to DILUTE with Fractionated Coconut Oil before applying (you're welcome!).
