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.
Im a big all things mint fan... Spearmint, Peppermint, Pennyroyal, Corn Mint.... Ive tried CM from 2 other reputable companies and neither of those oils are comparable to AVATs. This is a strong mint. It has a kicky component to it that I can't describe. I love that it doesn't dissipate quickly like other brands... more concentrated perhaps?? I water diffuse it and add it to my diy all purpose, tub/shower spray, and now my dishwasher detergent recipe. Mixes well with basil and eucalyptus in diy products.... and i love adding a softer edge by pairing with melissa in the diffuser. I would not add this to a nebulizer diffuser unless your intention is to diffuse the neighbor's house as well. Happy Oilying Y'all
Firstly, this cornmint is indeed powerful. Perhaps too powerful to use undiluted. While it does the job, and very quickly, of clearing my sinuses, it lasts in my nose rather too long. In fact, it is more of an industrial mint, not the softer more herbally variety. It smells of Colgate toothpaste flavoring rather than the more complex garden variety you make into tea or cook with potatoes.<br /> <br /> <br /> The mood it creates is silly and childish. It's a fun scent. The AVNP website description is accurate.
