The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753.
A high menthol content—like that found in the doTERRA® Peppermint essential oil— distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products.
Peppermint oil has been traditionally used in Aromatherapy to relieve cough, support mental function and help relieve the symptoms of mild tension headache.
In traditional Western herbal medicine, Peppermint oil has been taken orally to relieve abdominal discomfort, relieve nausea, relieve vomiting, relieve symptoms of sore throat, relieve mild throat inflammation and applied orally (directly to the mouth cavity) to relieve toothache.

Everyone is different and reactions to fragrances such as essential oils are no different. For some people (neurodiverse and neurotypical) using essential oils is highly supportive, however it is good to be aware that around 30% of the neurotypical population are sensory sensitive (but not necessarily to smell) and a higher rate (but not all) neurodiverse individuals have sensory sensitivities (again this is general sensory sensitivities, not necessarily to smell). So when planning to use any fragrance, including essential oils, particularly when diffused into a shared environment, we would encourage you to consider the potential for sensory and/or allergy sensitivities of those that will be using the space.
