Andean Mint Essential Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Our Andean Mint Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stems of Minthostachys mollis, a native Peruvian plant. We have sourced this oil from a distiller that is mindful of sustainability concerns and that certifies that the Andean Mint (Minthostachys mollis) is cut in a manner that allows for regrowth of this highly revered plant. It is not uprooted during the harvesting process.

Andean Mint Essential Oil is also known as Muna Essential Oil.

Andean Mint Essential Oil is a particularly intriguing oil due to its overall composition that includes 28-29% of the ketone pulegone. Overall, it contains 70% ketones. As such, it is a very powerful essential oil that should be used conservatively.

We see this newly sourced essential oil as showing promise in supporting respiratory health. Its properties also make it well suited for aromatic applications intended to support cleanliness.

Emotionally, Andean Mint Essential Oil is a stimulating essential oil that is well suited for use in formulations intended to help to ease the feelings of sadness and discouragement and to help invigorate the body, mind and spirit. It can be helpful in promoting mental and emotional focus and concentration.

Aromatically, Andean Mint Essential Oil possesses a bright, minty, herbal aroma. It blends well with essential oils within the mint, herbal, wood, conifer, and citrus families.

We have had our Andean Mint Essential Oil independently GC/MS tested by Essential Validation Services. The GC/MS report is available here.

Although Essential Oil Safety Edition 2 by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young does not include an entry for Andean Mint Essential Oil that is steam distilled specifically from Minthostachys mollis, we recommend a dermal maximum of .8% based on our interpretation of component guidelines presented in the book. This percentage serves as a suggestion only, and we strongly recommend referring to Essential Oil Safety Edition 2 to review and confirm safety information based on your intended use of the oil.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
