But what is the difference between peppermint and peppermint Vitality?  

The ONLY thing different is the label. Because essential oils are regulated by the FDA we have to be specific about how the oils are to be used. Vitality essential oils are the SAME great oils but labeled differently, specifically for internal uses, like dietary proposes and cooking etc. That’s it!
