Why You’ll Love Organic Peppermint Essential Oil

The invigoratingly fresh scent of peppermint essential oil is familiar to many. Often selected as a scent for soaps, lotions, and as a flavoring for mints, gum, and oral hygiene products, it is instantly recognized by its mentholated, sweet aroma and taste. Peppermint has been cultivated for use in herbal medicine for over 3,000 years, and today it is still widely used for homeopathic remedies as well as aromatherapy.

Thrive Market’s essential oils are crafted from the highest quality ingredients to produce top of the line oils. Our specially selected botanicals are harvested, sorted, and then gently extracted using either steam distillation or cold expression to reduce deterioration of the aromatic compounds. The result is a premium essential oil with the truest expression of the plant that can be used in a multitude of ways.

Thrive Market prides itself on offering a thoughtfully curated selection of wholesome products, from our top-tier health food items to our bath and beauty goods. Our certified organic, non-GMO essential oils fit right into our mission to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone.

How it’s made

Thrive Market’s Organic Peppermint Oil is created using steam distillation, a process that uses vapor to extract aromatic compounds. The lush green leaves of the peppermint plant are harvested and put into a large vessel that is filled with steam. The water vapor then carries small amounts of the vaporized compounds into another vessel where it cools, causing the water and essential oils to separate, and allows them to be collected. This gentle process avoids using high heat, which means that the oils made this way have better-preserved aromas and are of the highest caliber.

A little about peppermint

Peppermint (also known as brandy mint or balm mint) is a hybrid plant—a cross between watermint and spearmint. The plant, thought to be indigenous to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, is now widespread in cultivation in many regions of the world. Fun fact: Menthol, one of the main compounds found in the peppermint plant, activates the same receptor on nerve endings that helps in sensing cold. This is why mint gives us that tingly, cooling sensation and can also act as a mild anesthetic.

A history of herbal healthcare

Peppermint has historically been used as medicine—most notably for digestion, as noted in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian medical text dating to 1550 BC. Peppermint eventually made its way to Europe, where it grew in popularity for medicinal and culinary purposes, finding its place in the London Pharmacopoeia in the 1700’s as a treatment for sores, venereal disease, colds and headaches. To this day, peppermint still has a well-established reputation as a folk remedy and is used to help treat a multitude of issues.

Using peppermint around the home

Outside of medicinal use, peppermint is often used for aromatherapy and as a cleaning and housekeeping agent. The simplest use is to take a drop of oil and rub it between the palms of the hands and inhaling the fragrance—it is said to provide an instant boost of energy. For other ways to use it, see the following below:

  • Aromatherapy: Use 5-10 drops of oil per one cup of water either in a spray bottle, or in a diffuser. Peppermint is wonderful as a solo scent, but you can also experiment with blending this extremely versatile oil.

  • Surface cleaner: Mixing vinegar and water with peppermint and tea tree oils can yield an environmentally friendly, aromatic all-purpose cleaning spray.

  • Pest repellent: A stronger ration of peppermint to water can yield a non-toxic spray that will deter mice, spiders, and ants.

  • Laundry freshener: Add a few drops of peppermint onto a clean rag and use it as your own DIY laundry sheet—just toss it into the dryer and dry as normal!

Caring for your essential oil

Make sure to store your essential oils in a cool, dark place and avoid extreme changes in temperature to ensure the longest life for your collection. Essential oils do not turn rancid like vegetable oil, but they will degrade gradually into a state where the therapeutic properties become diminished. If you have a particularly large bottle of oil, you may want to decant it into smaller bottles to protect one bottle from oxidization for longer periods. You can expect this oil to remain in good condition for four years and even longer when cared for properly!
