Peppermint Essential Oil – 10 Benefits

Invigorate our organic Peppermint essential oil, which is the latest addition to our oil product range. Self-care of our physical and mental health now is paramount. When looking to expand our selection, we spoke to therapists about what support most people needed. The results were this beautiful organic essential oil of Peppermint named Invigorate, designed to give strength, instil excitement and aid with emotional fatigue. 

Peppermint was found in the Egyptian pyramids dating back to around 1000B.C. The oldest civilisations highly value it for its properties in soothing digestion; modern research has shown it improves tastes and smells when inhaled and is a powerful natural antibacterial.
