Peppermint Essential Oil

$13.00

Peppermint: the menthol it contains has an analgesic action (pain reliever) that acts on pain receptors. It thus causes immediate subcutaneous vasoconstriction, resulting in its refreshing effect. Peppermint is used externally to relieve joint and inflammatory pain. Rarely used pure, except for one to two drops for certain neuralgias, it is often part of multiple pain relief formulations for topical use.
