AWO’s 100% pure Peppermint Essential Oil (Menthol Piperita) is known for its pleasantly refreshing, subtly crisp and overall balanced essence; in fact, many say that it is incredibly similar to the scent of candy-canes!

On top of its well-liked aroma, the benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil (Menthol Piperita) have been seen to be beneficial in all aspects of life, from therapeutic uses to household applications.

  • When diffused and inhaled Peppermint Oil has been seen to ease headaches, migraines, hay fever and sinus congestion as well as common cold and flu symptoms.
  • Peppermint Oil is also rich in antiseptic and clearing properties, making it a great essential oil for cuts, small wounds, abrasions and insect bites; in fact, when applied to mosquito bites it is known to stop the irritating ‘itch’.
  • In saying this, this oil is known to be one of the best essential oils for insects; the powerful menthol content within Peppermint Oil makes it an effective repellent for insects, spiders, wasps, bees, mosquitoes, mice and other household rodents.
  • In aromatherapy, Peppermint Essential Oil is highly valued for its soothing and calming abilities, particularly when it comes to soothing tempers. These benefits are also known to help combat mental exhaustion whilst promoting focus and attentiveness.

    Crystallised Essential oil

    Posted by shar on 19th Aug 2021

    Love the scent, great value BUT every bottle I've ordered is difficult to use (except in the heat of summer) as the essential oil crystallises around the lip of the bottle so nothing comes out.

    Bought this product to aid in my anxiety and depression recovery and love the smell in my house while doing my meditation and yoga. Delivery was also incredibly quick and price was the best I could find anywhere.
