Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint Essential Oil - Cultivated
Peppermint is often thought of as one of the most versatile essential oils. Peppermint oil has a mild painkiller effect and muscle relaxing effect when applied to the skin. The oil also has an expectorant effect on congestion and can be used to loosen congestion in the throat, nose, lungs, and sinuses. Due to its awakening properties, peppermint oil can be used to prevent drowsiness, keep you awake, and help the brain focus. Peppermint oil provides sustained alertness.
Peppermint oil can be used to soothe almost any bug bite or itchy skin condition, including poison ivy, poison oak, and chicken pox. Peppermint oil doesn’t just soothe bug bites, but it also helps prevent them. You can use peppermint oil as part of a natural bug repellant both in the house and on the skin (with a carrier oil). For general stomach upset and soothing relief after vomiting, applying peppermint oil to the stomach will help relieve cramps and have a positive effect on the body while relieving nausea. The oil is known for its ability to soothe and relieve many different mild conditions; however, some people are extremely sensitive to peppermint oil, even when a carrier oil is used.
