Peppermint, Menta Piperita, essential oil is steam distilled and also happens to be one of my favorite oils. It was the first essential oil that I ingested. A friend had me pour a drop onto my hand, touch my finger to it and put it on the top of my mouth. I had a sinus infection at the time, and I loved the immediate relief. Then she had rub it on my neck. Rub my hands together and inhale. By the time that I inhaled, my sinuses had opened up, and I was trying to buy the bottle. Peppermint really started me down the path of learning about essential oils again. Peppermint has a lot of healing properties and can be found in a lot of other blended oils as well. I always recommend diluting peppermint with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil because peppermint may cause a skin irritation. Make sure that there are no warnings on your essential oil label telling you not to put the oil on your skin or to ingest the oil. Research your oil company and know where your oil comes from.
