Description

Our premium peppermint oil is from the Willamette valley in the USA, which has a sweet and less herbal aroma. Be careful what you compare this to. This is not peppermint from Yakima, nor is it Japanese mint oil. It is better! Other peppermint oils on the market may be cheaper, but not as good (refer to the chemical analysis).

Species: Mentha piperita
Country of origin: USA
