Peppermint Essential Oil comes from Mentha Piperita, or Peppermint, which is a herb that can grow up to a meter in height. The oil is obtained through steam distillation and has a cooling effect when used topically which can help relieve the sensation of pain.
Talked about in Greek mythology, Minthe was a naiad (nymph) that was transformed into a herb by Queen Persephone.
We use it in our muscle rubs for its ability to soothe pains and aches.
