Pleasant Peppermint Essential Oil is distilled by one of our favorite, fourth generation family distillers. They create a magic mint that is the only Peppermint we can find that is distilled from fresh (instead of dried) leaves. This ancient elixir was a main ingredient in the famous Egyptian perfume preparation, Kyphi. Early Greeks used mighty mint in their bath water and as a restorative herb. All the rage in Europe by the end of the 19th century, peppermint was and is much more than a mere breath freshener. It feels nice like ice on the skin.
Mint derives from the Latin mente, which means "thought", as our antiquity ancestors considered it a boost for the brain. This energizing essence may also enhance mental clarity, improve focus, and cultivate a razor sharp memory. Apathy cannot hold a candle to Peppermint, which is inhaled to revive and come alive.
