Our Peppermint Hydrosol is a product of the steam distillation of peppermint leaves. It has a strong, fresh scent with a sweet undertone. It is great for cosmetic uses, and can be applied directly on the skin. Peppermint Hydrosol can also be used as part or all of the water phase for nonionic or cationic creams and lotions for face or body, as well as in invigorating room sprays, and enlivening all-over body sprays.
Evidence of peppermint plant cultivation for various home uses has shown up in writings dating back to Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece, and it appears in 13th century Icelandic medical documents. However, it was not used medicinally in Europe until the mid-18th century.
Peppermint Hydrosol is preserved with Leucidal Liquid SF, a mild and natural preservative. It is for external use only.
