Peppermint Essential Oil Crystallisation
Many of the beneficial properties of Peppermint Essential Oil can be attributed to the Menthol content of this oil. It is also why Peppermint Essential Oil will produce crystals when cold, making it difficult to pour.
The way to remedy this issue is to gently warm the Peppermint Essential Oil to your body temperature. This can be done by rolling the bottle between your hands if you are in a rush. Or you can place the bottle in a warm spot on your body. A clothed armpit is generally the most convenient warm spot!
Also, shaking the bottle quite vigorously can help to break down the crystals.
