Safety Considerations for Indian Peppermint Essential Oil
Though it is non-toxic and non-irritating, peppermint may be sensitizing because of its high menthol content, causing irritation to the skin and mucous membranes. Do not use on children younger than 7 years of age. If daily consumption is desired the ECOCERT may be a better option.
