All About Peppermint

The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in the dōTERRA Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral health, Peppermint also helps to alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among dōTERRA essential oils.

It invigorates body, mind and spirit and reminds individuals that life can be happy and there is nothing to fear”.
