Aromatic Description

  • Minty, fresh, herbaceous


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. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally.* Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among doTERRA essential oils.


  • Use a drop of Peppermint with Lemon in water* (adults only): for a refreshing flavour or refreshing mouth rinse.
  • Place one drop in palm of hand with one drop Wild Orange and one drop Frankincense (optional) and inhale for a midday pick-me-up.
  • Add a drop to your favourite smoothie recipe for a refreshing twist*.
  • When dealing with seasonal allergies blend 2 drops each of lavender, lemon and peppermint oil in 1 tsp. (5 ml) fractionated coconut oil, and apply a small amount on the temples, under the nose, and on the bottoms of the feet morning.
