Triple Distilled Peppermint:

Triple distilled Peppermint, as its name implies, has been through the distillation process three times. The first distillation produces a minty, herb-like oil similar to freshly crushed peppermint leaves. By the third distillation, the herb-like aroma and any alcohol-like aromas have essentially vanished, leaving a candy-like (though not sugary) aroma. Most people find our triple distilled peppermint to be more pleasing to the senses.

Our very fine Peppermint essential oil has a wonderfully fresh, green, cooling, and penetrating minty aroma with grassy-sweet undertones. This high-quality oil is perfect for both aromatherapy and natural perfumery. Due to its strong aroma and high menthol content, the amount of Peppermint oil used in formulations should be carefully considered.

Key Benefits and Uses:

  • Alertness and Focus: Peppermint oil's fresh aroma can help increase alertness and improve concentration.
  • Digestive Health: It is beneficial for treating upset stomach, motion sickness, general nausea, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
  • Pain Relief: The oil can reduce inflammation, which helps alleviate achy muscles and headaches, including migraines.
  • Respiratory Support: Peppermint oil can be employed as an expectorant to relieve respiratory issues.
  • Other Uses: It is also indicated for PMS symptoms, as a liver tonic, and can act as an analgesic, antiviral, antibacterial, astringent, and insect repellent.

Difference Between Single and Triple Distilled Peppermint Oil:

  • Single Distilled Peppermint Oil: This version retains the natural, full-bodied aroma and therapeutic properties of the peppermint plant. It includes a broader range of constituents, making it suitable for holistic aromatherapy and therapeutic uses.
  • Triple Distilled Peppermint Oil: This type undergoes additional distillation processes to refine the oil, often resulting in a more potent and concentrated product. The triple distillation process removes the herb-like and alcohol-like aromas, leaving a cleaner, more candy-like scent that is often more pleasing to the senses.
