This essential oil encourages one to avoid extremes and in doing so opens the door to achieving the impossible. This oil makes this possible by teaching at an energetic level, the art of staying in flow/motion when an outcome is impossible to predict, keeping a cool head and observing events unfold with detachment; until seeing the most auspicious path and then jumping in with both feet! Peppermint reminds you life is always in flux and energy can be re-channeled at any given time towards the desired outcome, as long one remains: poised, present, and cool-minded.

Peppermint Oil is an adaptogenic Essential Oil. It can either sedate or stimulate depending on the action needed. Applied externally, peppermint initially constricts capillaries, causing cooling of the skin. After some minutes, it has a rubefacient effect of dilating capillaries, bringing blood and warmth to surface of the skin.
Not for use in first trimester of pregnancy or while breast feeding (it may reduce milk production), not for use for children under 2 years old. Avoid with epilepsy and homeopathics. A 2% dilution rate and skin patch test is recommended. *
