Peppermint (mentha piperita) Organic Essential Oil
This Organic Oil is certified “food” grade organic, the highest organic grade possible, most essential oils sold by other suppliers are “health and beauty grade” – a lower standard.
Peppermint essential oil is a very useful oil to have in your human & animal first aid kit – extremely versatile, it may be selected (inhaled, ingested or topically) for:
- pain relief
- anti-inflammatory action – especially for strains
- damaged nerves (causing areas of numbness) [NB for nerve pain, St John’s Wort is the substance usually chosen]
- for many kinds of breathing issues & upper respiratory infections (it is anti-bacterial as well as being a smooth muscle relaxant & can help to relax restricted airways, eg COPD, asthma)
- for digestion
- for mental stimulation as well as circulation (eg horses on box rest)
Offering peppermint essential oil instead of giving a horse ‘polo mints’ (which they could enjoy for any of the above reasons) is much healthier & far more useful for the horse.
