Peppermint oil benefits:
When blended with a cream it can reduce the irritation caused by sunburn and ease the redness of inflamed skin as well as reducing itchiness.
When burned or vaporised, peppermint oil can also act as a mental stimulant, refreshing the mind and boosting concentration. It can ease headaches, cool and calm anger and hysteria.
It’s also a useful deterrent for vermin – e.g. mice, rats, ants and cockroaches, especially when combined with Eucalyptus. Peppermint oil should be avoided late at night and by insomniacs.
- Reviving, cooling, clearing
- Peppermint Essential Oil is a great mental stimulant – good to use when studying (but not last thing at night!)
Peppermint oil uses:
Peppermint oil is good to use in conjunction with Lavender and Marjoram during winter, either as a chest rub (diluted with carrier oils) or to burn or vaporise when it will help to clear a blocked nose and congested sinuses. Peppermint has a lovely cooling action which can also help to clear nasal passages when used in a steam inhalation.
