Other ingredients to blend with peppermint oil:


Peppermint oil is a popular essential oil that has a wide range of uses. Its refreshing scent and cooling sensation make it a popular choice for many people. However, peppermint oil can also be toxic if used in large amounts. Peppermint oil contains menthol, which can be poisonous if ingested in large quantities. You should not drink peppermint essential oil since it is only for external use. The peppermint oil is often confused with edible peppermint plant leaves. Make sure you understand the distinction.

Inhaling peppermint oil directly can also be harmful, as it can irritate the lungs and cause difficulty breathing. It has a much higher potency and concentration level than most other steam extracted essential oils. For these reasons, it is important to use dilute peppermint oil or use it in a diffuser. It's best to dilute it with a carrier oil like or sweet almond oil. 

How to dilute peppermint oil?

We recommend diluting peppermint oil in a 1:4 ratio with a carrier oil. If you want to dilute it in water for a diffuser or for cleaning the house, we recommend adding a few drops of peppermint oil into 500ml of water. This should be enough to give off a fresh aroma. 

Use peppermint oil with caution and only in small amounts. When used safely, peppermint oil can be a valuable addition to your health and beauty routine.

    I use this in clay face masks, cooling scalp treatments and on skin (both in carrier oils) and it is so refreshing and cooling. Really great quality oil.

    The best

    This peppermint oil is the best I've purchased so far. The smell provides a calming environment, helps me sleep better and it helps with itchy scalp.

    I bought this to add to my homemade toothpaste and now every time I open my 'potions' cupboard the aroma wafts out and makes me take a big deep delicious breath that enlivens my mind and brings me back to the moment.

    I bought a 250ml bottle of this oil which I use frequently when making body wash. It sure has a kick and the zing is just the thing wake you up in the morning. I’ve tried changing my body wash recipes but my husband always asks for peppermint..

    What a difference it makes to have REAL essential oil!!! Unbeknownst to me prior to discovering N-Essentials, I had been buying and using what is clearly fake essentials oils online. Be careful!! Many disreputable companies will just put a fragrance into a non-essential oil, but I now know there is a HUGE difference! The kicker? N-Essential is actually cheaper too. Wish I'd found them sooner!

    I purchased a 100ml bottle. The fragrance of this oil is so relaxing. I take this to work and use a diffuser at my desk, especially in summer time it helps me to cool down and clear my head. I also mix with other oils to make my own blend and share with my family. Love it.

    I purchased a 30ml bottle of peppermint amongst other things, absolutely gorgeous, and half the price of retail. I used the oils to make bath bomb and room spray! Very fresh. I highly recommend switching to bulk buying from N-essential. Staff were helpful and website was easy to use. Definitely a repeat customer when my supply finishes!
