Our pure, fresh peppermint oil is from one of the oldest family run peppermint farms in the US.
Enlivening to the senses and bracing to the muscles, peppermint can be added into our Sonoran Jojoba Oil or Argan Oil for a refreshing body and massage oil, a naturally muscle relaxing post workout rub, an erotic massage oil, or a cooling and refreshing after workout or after sun body oil that helps to repel mosquitos. A couple of drops in Prickly Pear Seed Oil can also be rubbed gently into the temples during episodes of headache or migraine.
Thought to have originated in Northern Africa and the Mediterranean, peppermint shows up throughout history with a variety of medicinal, practical, and even somewhat scandalous uses. Ancient Egyptians used peppermint to calm stomach pains and freshen breath. In ancient Greece the philosopher Aristotle thought mint a potent aphrodisiac and warned Alexander the Great not to let his soldiers partake of any mint while on crusade. Monks in the middle ages used mint as a tooth polisher and by the 1700s mint was being used in Europe for everything from sores and venereal disease to colds and headaches. Still as thoroughly multi-purpose and useful (though not recommended for quite the same pool of ailments) peppermint oil is a fantastic tool to battle all manner of indisposition.
