Mint derives from the Latin mente, which means "thought", as our antiquity ancestors considered it a boost for the brain. This energising essence may also enhance mental clarity, improve focus, and cultivate a razor sharp memory. Apathy cannot hold a candle to Peppermint, which is inhaled to revive and come alive. So many uses for marvelous mint, it is helpful and handy, like the Swiss Army knife of essential oils!
Contraindication: Due to its cooling properties, do not use undiluted on children under five years old as it can bring body temperature down. Okay to use a small amount (1 - 2%) diluted, or consider using spearmint which is milder.

When it comes to choosing essential oils, there's so many brands to choose from. And yes, it can be extremely confusing which brand to trust as there are so many essential oil brands that label it as "one thing" when in fact it is not 100% pure, or a combination of the 100% pure essential oil combined with synthetic fragrance oils. I hear this time and time again with certain brands. Living Libations, on the other hand, are completely transparent with all of their essential oils, ensuring they are authentic and pure and distilled only from the named plant matter. Furthermore, many distributers and marketers use terms such as “Grade A,” “therapeutic grade,” and “aroma-therapeutic grade” to describe their oils. Yet, these are words without meaning. No organisation, association, or commission monitors the purity or quality of essential oils, and there is no universal essential oil grading system in place. Be aware. Each essential oil has specific components that make it distinctive and authentic, and there are published standards defining these profiles. For over 20 years Living Libations have nurtured personal relationships with artisan distillers and family farmers around the globe so that we may secure authentic oils and extracts that are purely and fairly produced.
