P eppermint is not just for candy canes anymore. When tasked with helping us overcome things like the winter blues (Yes, the winter blues are, scientifically, a thing), peppermint essential oil, one of the most recognizable and versatile oils, provides amazing support and feelings of renewed energy.
Varieties of mint have been used in Asian culture since time untold. Traces of the herbal plant Mentha piperita have been found in Egyptian tombs dating to 1000 B.C. Mint extracts have been relied upon for centuries as a cooling antiseptic treatment to aid in skincare, haircare, clearer breathing, and support of relief for muscles and joints, as well as a promoter of improved feelings of concentration and memory. Because of its analgesic properties, the scent is believed to help relieve feelings of tension from headaches, and its stomachic properties have been researched for their ability to promote the feeling of being full. With peppermint essential oil diffuser benefits, feelings of nausea may be reduced.
Sourced in the United States, TLEO Peppermint has a highly penetrating, sharp, cool scent that ignites the senses. The oil is derived from the flowering herb via steam distillation.
Peppermint essential oil is a devoted friend for sore muscles and joints – when diluted with TLEO Fractionated Coconut Oil, it can be massaged onto the skin’s surface to support feelings of revived muscles after activity and exercise. It can also help relieve the appearance of skin redness and irritation. It’s abundant in bath and body products, such as peppermint foot scrub, because of its fantastic cooling sensation – from its primary component menthol – and its support of feelings of a recharged, reawakened body and spirit. The internet has an endless offering of recipes for DIY foot lotions, sugar scrubs, even sunburn soothing sprays, all with peppermint essential oil as the star ingredient.
Enjoy the cooling, soothing properties of peppermint throughout your day:
- Diffuse at home, in the office, or on the drive to school to promote feelings of mental clarity and focus.

- Add 1-2 drops to shampoo to promote feelings of the stimulated, refreshed scalp.
- Add a few drops to your favorite homemade cleaner and spray in bathrooms and kitchens for an antibacterial, disinfecting effect. In this method, it can also serve as an effective natural deterrent for house pests and insects.

TOTAL LIFE ESSENTIAL OILS FEATURES
- PEAK QUALITY: Sourced globally from across five continents
- PRECISE HARVEST: Assures each essential oil’s composition and potency remain intact
- SUPERIOR EXTRACTION: At first cut, by cold press or steam distillation for purity; reduces the breakdown of compounds
Cold press: Whole fruit or peel is pressed to derive essential oil, with solids from the plant included. The integral liquid is then filtered to separate oils from the juice.
Steam distillation: Delicate herb and leaf material is placed in a central unit, traditionally a stainless steel still. Steam is then sent into the container to release the aromatic molecules, creating a vapor. Compounds are then delivered to a condenser. Water is introduced to return the vapor to a liquid, then extracted. The liquid is carried to a separator, where the now-perfumed water and essential oils are separated.
