Peppermint is a top-selling favorite. Peppermint provides a myriad of health benefits.

Topical: Can be applied neat (with no dilution) or dilute 1:1 (1 drop essential oil to 1 drop carrier oil) for children and for those with sensitive skin when used topically. Apply directly on area of concern or to reflex points.
Aromatic: Diffuse, or inhale the aroma directly.
Internal: Place 1-2 drops under the tongue or in a beverage. Take in capsules. Use as a flavoring in cooking.

I purchased this peppermint oil as an attempt to alleviate my constant migraines. I was so desperate for relief that I purchased a cheaper peppermint essential oil at Whole Foods while the DoTerra oil was in the process of being shipped. The DoTerra oil has a cleaner, purer scent than the cheaper brand. And it is VERY potent. I apply to my temples and it takes a few seconds to feel the full impact, so apply sparingly. One or two drops is more than enough. Once it starts working, it feels like a cooling sensation, similar to Icy Hot or Bengay, but this is better for you. Definitely helps to relieve some of the discomfort but my migraines have not gone away completely.

My daughter suffers from headaches, the oil is for her. She has tried it before, but never had any of her own.

I use this in my classes...refreshing and motivating. They say it keeps outdoor bugs away. I'll give it a try.

Using Peppermint doterra oil in beverages created a sensational elevation of my mood, along with Lemon doterra. Will continue to cleanse with these two products!

This is one of the most valuable and versatile oils ever. I love using it, I've just made my own deodorant using a coconut oil base and I put just a couple of drops of peppermint oil into the mix and it's wonderful. I feel fresh all day, no dangerous additives and even my husband has started using a few drops of this oil in water to calm his "troubled waters". Very happy indeed! thank you

I use peppermint oil for headaches and they are gone in just a few minutes. I plan to use it for cooking.

Peppermint is my foundation, "go to EO". I gargle with a few drops in water every morning. I have Rosacea, a few drops of peppermint on my face relieves my itchy, burning skin. I mix peppermint, melaleuca, and lavender using coconut oil as a carrier oil to relieve sunburn. I ingest lemon, peppermint, and oregano in a capsule daily as a daily detox, cleanse.
