Peppermint Premium essential oil, an artisan oil from upper Midwest USA, grown without use of pesticides, containing an above average menthol content of 46% and smells sweet as candy. We currently offer two other Peppermint essential oils, an organic and an ethical farmed, both from India. The difference between this Peppermint and the Peppermint oils we offer from India is this one has a higher than average menthol content and thus a bold and fresh green minty note. Peppermint Premium is a very stimulating essential oil and glorious in a foot bath for tired aching feet.
If looking for a silky sweet Peppermint essential oil with average menthol content (33%) see Peppermint Organic from India and our standard Peppermint also from India.
