Japanese peppermint is a softer mint that is fractionated (some menthol content is often removed to stabilize the oil in liquid form at room temperature). It should never be used neat (without dilution) due to the menthol content that can cause irritations.
Botanical Name: Mentha arvensis
Total Menthone: 32.6%
Processing Method: Steam Distilled
Description / Colour / Consistency: A thin, colourless to pale yellow liquid.
A better-priced mint than mentha piperta (peppermint supreme)
Cautions - May interfere with iron absorption. Oil is toxic if taken internally in large doses, and we strongly discourage internal use may cause dermatitis. Menthol, the major chemical component of peppermint oil, may cause allergic reactions. Avoid prolonged use of the essential oil as an inhalant. Mint should not be given to children for more than a week at a time without a break. Do not give any form of mint directly to young babies. Peppermint can reduce milk flow; take internally with caution if breastfeeding. Check with the pediatrician before giving peppermint to a child.
