peppermint
The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in our Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral health, Peppermint also helps to alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function. Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among essential oils.

PEPPERMINT ✧ THE OIL OF BUOYANT HEART

Peppermint brings joy and buoyancy to the heart and soul. It invigorates body, mind, and spirit and reminds individuals that life can be happy and there is nothing to fear. It lifts an individual out of their emotional trials for a short reprieve. When an individual uses Peppermint, they feel as though they’re gliding through life. It assists in staying on the surface of emotional issues like a water skier on a lake.

The power of Peppermint can be felt most in times of discouragement or intense sadness. When the individual is disheartened, they may use Peppermint to re-discover the joy of being alive.

However, a person may also abuse the properties of Peppermint oil. If it is used as a permanent escape to avoid dealing with emotional pain, it can hinder growth and progress. Peppermint should not be used in this way. It aids individuals who need a short “breather.” At times, a reprieve is necessary before re-entering emotional waters, but we are not meant to wade into the shallow end forever. When it is accepted and embraced, emotional pain serves as a teacher. Peppermint can assist an individual in regaining the strength needed to face their emotional reality.

Negative Emotions: Unbearable pain, intense depression, heaviness, pessimistic, muddled

Positive Properties: Buoyant, optimistic, clear, relieved, renewed, strength to face emotional pain
