This Cornmint has a strong fresh aroma. Extensively used in the food flavor trade. Also used in a wide range of toiletry formulations. Not so pungent as Peppermint and therefore better for body care formulas and room fragrances.
Good as a vapor inhalation (with other oils) for sinusitis; spasmodic & dry coughs; nausea; headaches; menstrual cramps; mental exhaustion and to aid concentration. Has been used as an application (diluted) for headaches and neuralgia.
I've said it in other reviews, I'm a lover of all mints & conifers. I was so excited to try Nepal that I bought a 2oz bottle and I'm LOVING IT! I tried a sample prior but the 1 drop sample didn't do justice...but then again, 1 drop is hardly ever a sufficient sample. I used to use peppermint daily and I hardly ever do because I'm always reaching for the corn mints! Nepal is strong yet airy at the same time. It's very fresh. Stronger than peppermint but lighter & fluffier. I see peppermint as solid green and corn mint as a turquoise blue/green. Almost aquatic. It has a long lovely dry down. Blends romantically with pine notes, cedarwoods, lemons, basils and is stunning with Eucalyptus Dives! Some people smell a dentist office. I smell a fresh rainforest waterfall.... AVAT has the BEST corn mints on the market!
