Everyone loves the invigorating smell of Peppermint Essential Oil. Who knew it was so powerful!
- Tough workout? Dilute a few drops of Peppermint in a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil, and use it in a refreshing post-workout massage.
- Create your own home spa! Add Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata to hot bath water and enjoy the relaxing, invigorating scent and aromatic steam.
- Add Peppermint to the foods you normally eat. You can use 1/8 teaspoon of Peppermint to replace 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract in food recipes such as protein shakes.
- Soothe your digestive system difficulties, such as nausea, gas, heartburn, and indigestion by rubbing Peppermint on your stomach.
- Reduce a fever by rubbing several drops of Peppermint to the bottom of your feet.
- Have a headache? Rub Peppermint on your temples and the back of your neck for fast relief. Always make sure to a dilute the peppermint oil with a carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil. Peppermint is a ‘hot’ oil and the aroma may make your eyes water if not diluted.
- Waking up in the morning is much easier if you put a little Peppermint under your nose. You will quickly feel alert and awake. If the aroma is too strong, use a carrier oil. I keep a 3ml Peppermint roller ball next to my bedside. It really helps to get me started in the morning.
- Decrease travel sickness; try rubbing a few drops on your wrists.
- I add a drop of Peppermint to each of my water bottles to freshen breath, help with digestion, and help keep me alert during the day. Always put essential oils in stainless steel or glass as the oils will break down plastic. You do not want to drink broken down plastic as the chemicals are linked to number of illnesses including cancer.
- Peppermint is in the same family as both Lavender and Rosemary. Diffuse the oils of these powerful botanicals together for a fresh aroma that uplifts the spirit.

You may find peppermint oils marketed in various places, although remember, Not all oils are created equal. Due to a lack of industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as “natural” or “pure”, much of what you find is not a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may lack real quality or even contain contaminants or have been adulterated in order to give the illusion that the oil is of an higher quality.
