Olfactive Description: Peppermint, Menthol, Fresh
A minty and herbal standard, Peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from the fragrant leaves of mentha piperita. Considered a top note, Peppermint performs well on its own or in your own handmade blend.
One of our favorite things about this calming essential oil is that a little goes a long way. From soap to candles, the low usage recommendation still produces a strong scent. We found that Peppermint performs very well in candles, wax melts, and tarts. It also makes invigorating soap and scrubs.
Candle Maker’s Notes:
Peppermint essential oil is one of our top performing essential oils in soy wax. We rated peppermint essential oil as three leaves out of three on our soy performance scale. We noticed only a slight change from its out of bottle scent. We felt that this one pleasantly mellows out in wax.
