Dosage - How much Peppermint Essential Oil should I use?

Peppermint essential oil is concentrated and potent; a couple of drops are usually enough for topical use and aromatherapy.

When using Peppermint oil on your skin, make sure to dilute it with a carrier oil, such as almond, coconut, or avocado oil. Always do a patch test. Remedy's Nutrition® Peppermint essential oil is in its pure and undiluted state. Start with small amounts: three drops in a teaspoon of carrier oil. If tolerated, you may increase the ratio until the desired effect is obtained.

  • For a cooling, tingling sensation on the skin, blend Peppermint oil with a carrier oil, and apply it to the skin. Or use a couple of drops of Peppermint oil in your body moisturizer.
  • For tired muscles, combine a few drops of Peppermint oil with a carrier oil and massage the desired area.
  • For a stimulating, focused environment, add Peppermint oil to your favorite diffuser.
  • Add a fresh, pleasing scent to your personal care and cosmetic products, adding a few drops of Peppermint oil.
  • Inhale peppermint oil by adding a few drops to a bowl of steaming water, or dilute it in a carrier oil and add it to a bath.
