Chocolate Peppermint Essential Oil
Chocolate Peppermint Essential Oil is occasionally available. Little is known about the therapeutic benefits of this variety. The aroma is clearly that of peppermint, but with a very subtle underlying hint of chocolate.
When sourcing this essential oil, I'd recommend ensuring that you are working with a very reputable supplier as it would be ever too easy for fly-by-night essential oil companies to simply impart peppermint essential oil with a hint of chocolate fragrance to mimic this uncommonly distilled variety of peppermint.
