Oil Summary: Organic rectified peppermint oil is the purest in the market, and is, therefore, the most suitable for food flavoring and encapsulation. Rectification is a process in the production of essential oils where distillation is carried out more than once to refine and purify the oil. To refine peppermint oil, freshly distilled oil undergoes steam distillation again, which removes undesired top notes while lowering the concentration of non-volatile compounds. Organic rectified peppermint oilone of the oldest known and the most versatile essential oils in the world. It has found extensive medicinal use in treating nearly every ailment, ranging from skin conditions to organ and system dysfunction. Peppermint is particularly famous for its effects on the digestive system, where it alleviates nausea and soothes the stomach. Peppermint has been used as a painkiller for centuries. The herb’s essential oil is even more effective, and when applied on a problematic area, it provides relief in seconds. It is effective as a muscle relaxant and is especially helpful in soothing an aching back and sore muscles.
