AQ Essential Oil - PEPPERMINT PREMIUM
PEPPERMINT PREMIUM (Mentha piperita) - India. Our Premium Peppermint is the highest quality available, with a stunning, fresh scent. Mint has been used since the ancient Egyptians recognised its benefits as a stomach soother, and Peppermint (which is a hybrid of Watermint and Spearmint) has become the most common variety of mint used in herbal medicine today - still widely renowned for its benefits on an upset stomach.
Peppermint is widely accepted as being stomachic, carminative, antispasmodic, tonic and stimulant. Good for treating nervous disorders, nervous vomiting, flatulence and colitis - and the perfect treatment for nausea or travel sickness (for a milder oil for use with children, try Spearmint).
Peppermint can help clear the head and refresh the spirits, and may be beneficial in the treatment of colds and flu - it is a good oil for sinus congestion, headache and migraine. Peppermint Oil also has a strong local anaesthetic action, useful in treating muscle pain, bruises and insect bites.
Use in dilutions of 1% or less to treat skin redness or inflammation. Use in moderation.
NOTE: For children and infants try using SPEARMINT oil to treat nausea and sickness, a much milder oil.
CLEANING: With its fresh natural scent, Peppermint is a natural deodorant and anti-bacterial oil that is excellent for us in CHEMICAL-FREE CLEANING (Click for more info). The scent helps clear the head and refresh the spirits. Also good for deterring ants and spiders.
AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium Essential Oils Range is for anyone who appreciates quality: top grade oil & plant species, sought after country of origin, as well as many unusual, exotic and hard to find oils - but without the 'luxe' pricetag. Since 2005 we have focused on sourcing the best quality oils - all Aroma Queen Essential Oils are 100% pure and undiluted single-source plant based oils with no additives, synthetics, fillers or preservatives.
We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils, which are generally reconstituted concoctions of chemical ingredients similar to those found in a pure plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils - usually those are only good for scent.
Our oils come from the one plant type, from a single country of origin, as outlined at the top of each listing. The reason we are able to offer them at such great value is because we buy direct, and then sell directly to you - we are not part of a larger franchise where every level along the way needs to add a percentage in profit, and only sell via our website to avoid added costs. The result is high quality oil at the right price. CLICK HERE to see our full range of oils and aromatherapy accessories.
Many of our oils are available in a range of sizes, with our standard bottle being 10ml. Many precious oils are available in a 4ml vial, and some common oils are available in a 2ml sample vial, so you can directly compare them to other oils in your collection. Many oils are also listed in a bulk 50 or 100ml size - see the drop-down menu for each listing, and if you require a larger size just email us with your requirements - contact us at [email protected]

SAFETY & USAGE
While essential oils are a natural product, they are very concentrated and need to be treated with respect. As with any essential oils, Aroma Queen Premium oils -
* Must be diluted before application to skin
* Must NEVER be administered internally, unless specifically prescribed for your situation by a trained clinical aromatherapist
* Must always be kept out of reach of children.
Some oils must be avoided when pregnant, and others should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight - even diluted. Read the top section of each individual oil listing for warnings and contra-indications on that oil.
