Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ (YLTG) peppermint essential oil comes from the most potent plants around the globe and is tested to ensure proper levels of menthol and menthone are in every bottle.
But there’s more to YLTG peppermint than just finding the best plants. The secret is in expert harvesting practices. Peppermint is harvested when the field’s overall appearance goes from light to dark green. The growers make sure the plant has just started to bloom before the peppermint is cut, and then water is carefully measured prior to distillation to ensure the most potent constituents are steam-extracted.
Enjoy this fun recipe as a great way to start incorporating peppermint essential oil in to your everyday life!
