About the Oil:

Peppermint is harvested just before the herb goes to flower to capture the best aroma compounds. Once it matures further, the quality of the oil turns into a sharper, less sweet and less complex aroma.

The main constituent of peppermint is menthol, a potent compound which causes a quick physical response when inhaled or when applied the skin. It feels cool which the body counteracts by increasing blood flow to the area where it is applied, producing a warming effect. Menthol is often found in chest rubs, sports creams, and cough drops for this reason
