7 Reasons to Love Peppermint

August 14th, 2014

Greek mythology claims the underworld god Pluto was in hot pursuit of the sexy nymph Mentha when his wife, Persephone, put an end to the affair by angrily stamping her into the ground. The same lore tells us that we have Pluto to thank for then turning Mentha into an herb.

 

Cultivated since ancient times, traces of Peppermint have been found in Egyptian tombs from as far back as 1000 B.C., while the Romans used the herb as a digestive aid, even wearing garlands of Peppermint to celebrate feasts. Our Peppermint oil is sourced from an organic farmer in India that steam distills the plant’s leaves in situ, ensuring their exceptional quality and vibrancy.

 

7 Reasons to Love Peppermint

 

Peppermint oil is well-known for relaxing the intestinal tract, making it highly effective in combating nausea, digestive problems and heartburn. Its cooling properties help ease headache and migraine, and its decongestant, expectorant and analgesic properties are well-documented. Emotionally, it awakes, refreshes and uplifts, stimulating and increasing focus.

 

In short: Peppermint is great for nausea, digestive problems, heartburn, headaches, congestion, pain relief and focus.
