- Essential oil of Peppermint generally comes in one of three forms: natural, redistilled, triple distilled. There are other variations, but these are the three basic categories. The term “natural” is a bit confusing, because it seems to suggest that the redistilled and triple distilled are unnatural, which is incorrect. They have simply been steam distilled a second and third time respectively.
It would be better to describe these as: first distillation, second distillation and third distillation. The natural, or single distilled, peppermint is characterized by a rather green, herby aroma- much like you would expect a freshly crushed peppermint leaf to possess. With each progressive distillation the oil becomes less herbaceous and more intense, sweet and candy-like. It is redistilled and triple distilled peppermint oil that is going to be found in more personal care and cosmetic applications, as it has a much crisper, cleaner aroma that the first distillation.

Please note: Peppermint is considered a dermal irritant - avoid application of known dermal irritant essential oils on any inflammatory or allergic skin condition; avoid undiluted application; avoid application on open or damaged skin; and dilute known dermal irritants with appropriate vegetable oil or other carrier. When using an essential oil you have never used before, perform a skin patch test. For external use only.
These are basic guidelines for scenting bulk bases with Essential Wholesale & Labs Essential Oil Blends. It is best to begin by scenting a small portion of the base with a low percentage of Essential Oil Blend and to increase until you reach your desired intensity of aroma.
Proper scenting requires some skill and discretion and over-scenting can ruin a base. Shampoos and Gels in particular will liquefy if over-scented and are very challenging to fix. Remember you can always add more but you can't remove the excess.
Not for internal consumption. For external use only.
Pregnant or lactating people or those with known medical conditions should consult with a physician prior to using product.
