Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil gives a cooling sensation and has a calming effect on the body, which can relieve sore muscles when used topically. It also has antimicrobial properties so it can help freshen bad breath and soothe digestive issues.

Clinically speaking, peppermint oil is recommended for its anti-nausea benefits and soothing effects on the gastric lining and colon because of its ability to reduce muscle spasms.

It’s important to note that peppermint essential oil is intense and far more concentrated than other essential oils. The topical application of peppermint oil is generally safe, although it may be necessary to dilute with a carrier oil like almond or jojoba oil.

The entire plant contains menthol, an organic compound with local anesthetic properties which provides a wonderful cooling sensation while it naturally alleviates discomfort. It also has antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, insecticidal, antispasmodic and carminative properties.

Peppermint essential oil has so many uses, it’s no wonder this oil is a staple for many. It’s used to soothe nausea, perk the senses, and cool overworked muscles. Peppermint also helps to clear congestion and quiet headaches . Below are its many uses and benefits.
