Peppermint is one of the oldest herbs used in natural medicine. It has been used for centuries to soothe digestive difficulties, freshen breath and relieve colic, gas, headaches, heartburn and indigestion. This oil is purifiying and stimulates the conscious mind. Peppermint also has anti-parasitic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antiviral properties.
I always keep a bottle of peppermint essential oil in my purse to use when I feel a headache coming on, and it knocks it right out! I especially love peppermint when my stomach feels a little off as it soothes digestive upset almost instantly. Peppermint is also a great pick-me-up when I'm feeling tired or lacking focus. It is wonderful to breathe in to help open up my sinuses during allergy season.
