Cornmint Essential Oil (redistilled) derives from the leaves of the Mentha arvensis plant, which is native to India, Siberia, and the Himalayas. Also known as “Japanese mint”, “field mint” or “wild mint”, this essential oil is commonly used in place of peppermint oil in Eastern Countries. The strong, mint aroma of this essential oil is sweet and warm and is often used to release negative energy, provide spiritual openness, and promote a positive overall mood. Cornmint Essential Oil contains a higher percentage of menthol than other mint oils, which makes it very effective for reducing pain in the muscles and joints. . Cornmint Essential Oil is used for beekeeping and is known to be an effective deterrent for tracheal mites and other insects. It can work to mask the natural scent of honeybees, and help to keep predatory insects away from colonies.
