INCI = Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil
You might be asking what the difference is between our regular peppermint and the Willamette Valley peppermint. Well, here is the answer: the Willamette Valley peppermint oil smells a bit greener than our regular version. Both are grown in the USA and work well in soap and lip balms.
Body Use Peppermint will give a tingle to the skin if used in large amounts, so use sparingly.
Lip Balm Use
Use at a rate of 0.3 to 1.0%. For a batch of lip balm that makes 50 tubes (.15 ounces each) or 25 jars (.25 ounces each) use from 1 to 3 grams. This converts to approximately 1 to 3 milliliters if you would rather use a pipette. We generally do not recommend more than 2 mL in this amount of lip balm. Use sparingly at first since it is always easier to tell yourself to add more next time than wish you could wash it off!
