Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is the second most popular essential oil in the United States. It is cooling to the skin and gives off a fresh, grassy aroma. This U.S.-sourced essential oil comes from the prominent Yakima Valley in Washington state.
Peppermint is believed to be native to the Mediterranean region, although the actual origin is uncertain. The crossing of its two, parent species mentha and peperit occurred in the wild.
What's the difference between organic peppermint essential oil and conventional peppermint essential oil? Organic essential oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA's Organic Standards. Aura Cacia's manufacturing facility and all of their organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).

I use this daily, great for dry and sensitive skin.
This is a very strong product and cleans my teeth better than anything else. I combine it with Artisana Virgin Coconut oil to make excellent tooth paste. Thank you!
I will never go a day without this moisturizer. It's really thick and creamy, and has cured my dry skin this winter. Maybe too thick for summer though. Bonus points because of the natural ingredients and the divine scent!
This balm is very moisturizing and perfect for rough dry patches. It doesn't take much to add some moisture and a little glow to your skin.
Perfect - just a moisturizer that doesnt irritate.
