Peppermint Oil Roller Ball
So many people have asked us for a Japanese mint oil rollerball that we had to respond. First off, we know there are Japanese mint oil lovers who swear by it and use it all the time. However, for information sake, we have been trying to inform everyone that Japanese mint oil is just plain old cornmint (Mentha arvensis). Cornmint is a low-menthol mint species considered to be one of the lowest quality mints. Often times, the menthol is extracted from cornmint oil to make menthol crystals and what is remaining is sold as Japanese mint oil! Other versions of Japanese mint oil are sold undiluted, which can be dangerous for direct application to the skin.
Because we always want to bring you the best, we will never sell Japanese mint/cornmint oil. What we will sell you is our high quality Mentha piperata from the Willamette Valley. Willamette valley peppermint is considered one of the best in the world. We use our high menthol variety, which is an even better for analgesic (pain killing) purposes.
To ensure proper essential oil safety, our pre-made rollerballs are always pre-mixed with fractionated coconut oil – a lightweight, non-staining, carrier oil.
