Peppermint is one of the oldest documented medicinal herbs. Japanese peppermint is known for its high menthol content, and menthol crystals sometimes form right on the leaves. Peppermint’s name has its roots in Greek mythology. Hades, god of the dead, pursued the beautiful nymphe, Minthe. Hades’ wife, Persephone, became jealous and turned Minthe into a small and insignificant plant on which to be trampled. Pluto could not undo the transformation, but ensured that Minthe would always be loved for her fragrant aroma.

Peppermint is excellent for relieving headaches, as well as aches and pains caused by arthritis, overuse, fatigue, or exercise.

Note: Because of the very high menthol content of this oil, it may crystalize. If so, we would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to its liquid state, then gently agitate before use.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
