Japanese peppermint is a softer mint that is fractionated (some of the menthol content is often removed to stabilize the oil in liquid form at room temperature). It should never be used neat (without dilution) due to the menthol content that can cause irritations.  

Botanical Name: Mentha arvensis


Total Menthone: 32.6%
l-Menthol: 41.0%

Origin: India

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colorless to pale yellow liquid.

A better-priced mint than mentha piperta (peppermint supreme)  

Whenever high­ly concentrated menthol is used, one must consider that menthol is toxic to infants; there are rumors that it can induce apnoea

The oil of this so-called Japanese pepper­mint is often attri­buted with an in­credible wealth of useful medical properties; it is even more in­credible, though, that it never failed to help a number of dif­ferent in­conve­nient con­ditions like nausea, mild stomach upset or cold.

Cautions - May interfere with iron absorption. Oil is toxic if taken internally in large doses and we strongly discourage internal use may cause dermatitis. Menthol, the major chemical component of peppermint oil, may cause allergic reactions. Avoid prolonged use of the essential oil as an inhalant. Mint should not be given to children for more than a week at a time without a break. Do not give any form of mint directly to young babies. Peppermint can reduce milk flow; take internally with caution if breastfeeding. Check with the pediatrician before giving peppermint to a child.

Essential oils, including peppermint, are powerful natural insecticides, killing and repelling fleas, mosquitoes, ants and other bugs in your home and garden without toxic chemicals. Insect Repellent Recipe: Fill a 4-ounce spray bottle with 1/2 water and witch hazel. To this add 120 drops Rose Geranium, 80 drops Lemongrass and 20 drops Peppermint. Shake well and apply. You can spray this on the outside of your clothing if you like, and of course, directly on your skin. For children under 12, be sure to substitute Spearmint for Peppermint, as the Peppermint can be too intense for the young ones. You can make precisely the same recipe in a lotion too: we like to use our unscented lotion base with SPF.
