Product Description

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) may be well-known for its refreshing minty flavor and scent, but it is also an invaluable botanical recognized for supporting various areas throughout the body including: digestive systems, respiratory systems and even the brain's satiety center. Although it is most popular during the winter season, peppermint’s therapeutic benefits make it useful all year around.


Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil is four times as strong as peppermint extract*. While peppermint extract is diluted with alcohol, this oil is made solely the peppermint botanical. In fact, to make one 0.5 oz (15 ml) bottle of pure Peppermint Essential Oil it takes one pound or approximately 256 leaves of peppermint†.
Scientific Research:

There is research that indicates that Peppermint scent alone could be an effective appetite suppressant, in a 2007 study by Wheeling Jesuit University showed that people exposed to the scent of peppermint ate significantly less than those that did‡. Dr. Alan Hirsch also studied peppermint's ability to help curb appetite. According to a study conducted by Dr. Joel S. Warm, Dr. William N. Dember, and Dr. Raja Parasuraman of the University of Cincinnati, those who inhaled the fragrance of peppermint reported to be more alert. The study theorizes that peppermint is a natural fragrance that could enhance concentration in detailed-oriented tasks**. Other doctors, such as Dr. Jean Valnet MD, have examined peppermint's supportive impact on the liver and respiratory systems. Furthermore, according to the National Institute of Health peppermint not only supports those systems but it could also support many others††.

Some Product Uses:

  • Add a drop into your tea or directly to your tongue, in order to ease an upset stomach, support the digestive system, and help boost your focus.

  • Inhale directly or use a diffuser to help reduce your sense of hunger to help fight those cravings for those mid-afternoon and midnight snacks. The fragrance also promotes alertness.

  • To reduce tension and boost your energy apply directly onto various areas. To help ease upset stomach, apply to the abdomen. To help ease pressure in the head, apply to the temples, forehead, back of your neck and sinuses while being careful to avoid your eyes.

  • For a stimulating and cooling massage, dilute this powerful essential oil with V-6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex for the perfect consistency.

  • In order to substitute Young Living’s Peppermint Essential Oil into your favorite peppermint recipes, use ⅛ teaspoon per teaspoon of peppermint extract and then add more drops until you get your desired level of flavor.
