FAQs

What is peppermint oil good for?

Peppermint oil contains high concentrations of menthol, which gives the plant its paradoxical cool burning sensation. From the time of ancient Egypt, peppermint has been the primary ingredient in many orally administered tinctures that reduced indigestion, nausea, and even menstrual cramps. It's also been used topically in salves to reduce itching, swelling, and dry skin.


Peppermint also works very well as a natural fragrance for a myriad of products. Soaps, like Dr. Bronner's peppermint castile soap, use peppermint to help deodorize while they clean your body. Peppermint oil shampoos leave your hair smelling minty fresh. And let’s not forget that peppermint works better than anything else as a breath freshener — so it makes sense that every oral care company under the sun makes peppermint toothpaste.


Is peppermint oil safe for cats?

Peppermint, or any other type of mint, is toxic to cats. The essential oils within the peppermint plant can cause an array of gastrointestinal issues for our feline family members, including stomach pain, diarrhea, and vomiting. Make sure to keep any peppermint products out of your cats’ reach, and avoid using any mint-containing shampoos or coat sprays on your feline friends. There are better ways to care for our feline friends.


Does peppermint oil repel bugs?

There is evidence that essential oils are effective at keeping bugs away. Peppermint especially has shown to be successful in keeping multi-legged pests at bay. But when it comes to peppermint in personal care items such as body wash, shampoo and conditioner, and toothpaste, we’re likely not talking about enough concentrated peppermint essential oil — or any that’ll last long enough after application, since most of it is washed away — to have any impact as an insect repellent.
