The botanical name of peppermint is mentha piperita. Extracted from the herb by steam distillation, the oil of peppermint is clear with a slight tinge of yellow. Its main constituent is menthol, which imparts the famous heady, minty aroma and the remarkable “cooling sensation,” when tasted or touched.

Peppermint oil is said to cure indigestion. Use peppermint oil as a flavoring agent in food or add a few drops in a glass of warm water and drink it after your meal. Being carminative in nature, peppermint oil helps to dispel gas. It also eases stomach and bowel spasms and is the best antidote for an upset stomach.

Peppermint oil benefits the respiratory system. The menthol in peppermint oil helps to clear the respiratory tract. The oil of peppermint acts as an expectorant and provides relief during a regular bout of cold and cough, and the more serious sinusitis, asthma, and bronchitis. Use peppermint oil as a cold rub on the chest or inhale it through a vaporizer and you will find that your nasal congestion has disappeared.

Peppermint oil is also used for relief from headaches. Inhaling a few drops of peppermint oil sprinkled on a handkerchief or dabbed on your wrist will remove a nagging headache. It also acts as a stress buster.

Peppermint oil is used to treat stress and pain. After a long tiring day, soak yourself in a bath or shower after applying some drops of peppermint oil to your body. The refreshing properties of the oil will make you feel energized again. The cooling properties of peppermint oil benefit by removing pain. It can be applied topically.

Peppermint oil is used in hair and skin care. Peppermint blends well with other essential oils and is used in massages, steam bath, and mud packs.

What are essential oils?

Essential Oils are the naturally occurring volatile oils obtained by steam distillation or cold pressing (expression), having the characteristic aroma of the plant part from which it was derived. These 100% pure oils are "neat", meaning they have not been processed, diluted or manipulated in any way with solvents or other additives. Although a particular species of plant harvested and distilled for its essential oil during a particular growing season in a specific region may produce a fragrance that differs from the same species grown in a different region, many of the main chemical markers and physical specifications may be very similar.


Do essential oils have a grading system to tell me which is better?

There is no official grading system that grades essential oils as A, B, C or Therapeutic grade. All LifeSource Essential Oils are 100% pure essential oils are accurately labeled as such and are the highest purity and quality available.

Nearly all essential oils are obtained by physical means, with most essential oils obtained by the process of steam distillation of plant materials, and Citrus Oils by the process of “cold pressing” of the fruit. There are a few essential oils obtained using chemical solvent extractions. These products are termed “concretes” and “absolutes”, and are identified as such on the label. This discussion will center on the physical processes of steam distillation and cold pressing.

Steam distillation is a three-step process comprised of the following:

  • The plant material is placed on a screen in a steam still. Steam from a boiler is introduced under the screen where the plant material is held. The steam vaporizes the essential oil in the plant material. Both steam and oil vapor rise to a condenser.
  • The steam and oil are condensed to a liquid, and fed to a receiving vessel.
  • The essential oil rises to the top of the liquid in the receiving vessel. It is separated from the condensed steam liquid (water or hydrosols). The water may be returned to the boiler and re-boiled into steam.

Cold Pressing is a four-step process comprised of the following:

  • The whole fruit is scarified, which means the peel or rind is mechanically pierced to open the sacs containing the essential oil.
  • The whole fruit is then pressed which squeezes out the juice and oil.
  • The oil and juice, which contains the peel and other fruit solids, are centrifuged to separate the liquids and solids.
  • The oil liquid layer is then separated from the juice liquid layer.

Further physical processing of either the steam distilled or cold pressed essential oils, such as filtering, winterizing, or distillation, may follow to clarify or rectify them by removing any debris, waxes, etc. In no instance is the use of chemical solvents permitted for products labeled as 100% pure essential oils, nor are any chemical additives permitted to enhance (adulterate) the oils. All LifeSource Essential Oils are produced utilizing only steam distillation or cold pressing with no additional ingredients.
