I love peppermint essential oil because it helps me wake up in the morning. Simply putting a drop or two in my Bronner’s and using it in my morning shower seems to set the tone for the entire day.
Peppermint has been used for everything from mouthwash to candy, and is often used to flavor bubble gum and even mint liquer. The essential oil of peppermint is clarifying and calming. As an inhalant, it is excellent for nasal congestion. The oil is analgesic, and has been used for everything from fevers to headaches and migraines to skin complaints.
Mint is clarifying and refreshing, stimulating the central hippocampus of the brain. It is good for overcoming mental fatigue and memory problems and concentrating. The essential oil is often used in the office or in conference rooms.
Prolonged use of peppermint as an inhalant should be avoided, and caution must be exercised with children. Mint can irritate the mucus membranes over time. It should not be used for children under the age of six. It should not be used for hay fever.
Mint can be combined with essential oils such as lemon, lime, grapefruit or lemon verbena. As an inhalant, it combines very effectively with eucalyptus and tea tree oil.
As mentioned, mint is refreshing and clarifying, increasing concentration and improving memory. Physically, it has been used for a wide variety of conditions ranging from dizziness to shock, from migraine and headaches to digestive disorders, and so forth. It stimulates lymph drainage and is therefore effective for lymph fluid blockage. Mint is also excellent for muscle and joint pain, sore muscles, bruises and overall weakness.
