Peppermint Organic Essential Oil 10ml by Star Child

PEPPERMINT
Mentha piperita

Planet: Mercury /Venus

History and Mythology:
Mints are sobering and clear headed herbs, aloof, even. In mythology they are descended from a nymph called Mentha, who had surrendered to Pluto's desires. His jealous wife Persephone (or according to some accounts, her mother Demeter), disgusted and enraged, stomped the poor nymph into the ground and punished her with infertility. Peppermint is a hybrid between common Garden Mint and Watermint and is indeed sterile. She reproduces by means of creeping rhizomes - and rather prolifically at that. Peppermint and has been used for food and medicine for millennia; from China to Egypt, evidence of its use goes back thousands of years. It is still a popular herbal home remedy and provides flavouring for dozens of products from chewing gum to chocolate and cigarettes, to name but a few. Peppermint oil is excellent for keeping creepy crawlies in check. Mice, rats, cockroaches and ants all detest the scent. A few drops on their pathways will surely deter them.

Magical use:
Peppermint can be used to help keep one's 'cool'. It clears the mind and aids concentration for study and helps focussing on one's intent. It can be used for protection and cleansing rituals. It clears the air of lingering emotions and cuts through irrational fears or attachments. It is a good oil for seeking direction and mental clarity.

Scent:
A fresh, green, sweet, camphor-like, 'minty' scent. Blends well with - Basil, Cedar, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Marjoram, Pine, Rosemary, Thyme, Black Pepper, Fennel, Ginger, Lemon and Lemongrass.

Aromatherapy:
In aromatherapy, Peppermint is mostly used as a digestive aid, to ally nausea and travel sickness, and to relieve cramps and colics. It aids PMT related symptoms, such as bloating or abdominal pains. It is also used to decongest the upper respiratory tract and to clear stuffiness, catarrh and sinus headaches, sinusitis and bronchitis. It can also be used as a cooling oil for sore muscles, rheumatism, arthritis or painful joints. The cooling property is also very pleasant as a treatment for sunburn. It refreshes the mind and combats exhaustion and lack of concentration. This oil needs to be very carefully dosed lest one ends up shivering with cold. Caution: Not recommended during first 4 months of pregnancy.

SAFETY **
** Pure essential oils are highly concentrated substances that should always be treated with due respect. Organic oils naturally are the purest oils available.

** Familiarize yourself thoroughly with the properties and uses of each individual oil you intend to use and take note of all cautions.

** Never take essential oils internally! *

** Do not apply essential oils neat (undiluted) to the skin. The recommended Aromatherapy standard dilution is 1 - 3%, though certain oils may be used in higher or lower dilutions. Consider each case individually.

** Always adhere to recommended safety standards and recommended dilution ratios.

** If you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies test oil blends on a small area of the inner arm prior to general use.

** Keep oils out of reach of children and pets.

** Never allow essential oils to enter the eyes.

** If you are pregnant, consult a qualified aromatherapist for suitability and safety of specific oils. Many oils should not be used during pregnancy, some only need to be avoided for the first 3 - 4 months, others may be helpful during labour, but may pose a risk during the months before.

** If you suffer from serious medical conditions such as (but not exclusively) high blood pressure, cancer, thrombosis, varicose veins or epilepsy, consult a qualified aromatherapist for professional advice on recommended oils and dosages.
** We support the notion of people taking responsibility for their own well being. However, if symptoms persist or re-occur or you are suffering from a serious medical condition, or if you are presently taking prescription drugs, we recommend that you consult a qualified doctor or practitioner before attempting to help yourself. Look for a practitioner/doctor who you can trust and who is prepared to work with you in exploring natural health alternatives.
*...unless you know better.


CARE FOR YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS:
Essential oils are highly volatile substances that easily deteriorate or simply "fly off" if not stored correctly. Keep essential oils tightly closed and store them away from any sources of heat, in a cool, dark place.
