Botanical Name: Mentha Piperita
Plant Part: Herb
This essential oil has a strong, sharp scent due to its high menthol content. It is reminiscent of slightly sweet mint used in making mentholated candies.
Blends well with Bergamot, Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Rosemary, Lavender and Citronella and should be used sparingly else it will overpower the the other essential oils in the finished product.
Uses: Great addition in making massage oils, soaps, creams, balms, salves, and other bath and body products. It can also be used in scent diffusers.
Note: Due to the high menthol content of this essential oil, it may crystallize. Should this happen, place the bottle in a hot water bath and change water until it returns to its liquid state.

It can cause skin irritation to some individuals with sensitive skin therefore a patch test is recommended. This product is not edible and should not be ingested. Keep away from reach of children.
