Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil 225x300

Refreshing.  Invigorating.  Peppermint’s minty, sharp, intense aroma is purifying, stimulates the conscious mind, and aids in memory and mental performance.  Affecting the Digestive, Nervous, and Respiratory Systems, Skin, and Muscles and Bones, this oil has a variety of health benefits from relieving upset stomachs, reducing fevers, to oral and respiratory health.

The French have used Peppermint to aid respiratory function, varicose veins, migraine headache, hot flashes, menstrual irregularity, vomiting, candida, asthma, itchy skin, etc.  It has also historically been used for centuries to soothe digestive difficulties including heartburn, gas, colic, headaches, and indigestion.  One main use of Peppermint is to freshen breath, which is easiest to do with the Peppermint beadlets.

Steam distilled from leaves, Peppermint can be applied directly to affected areas and to reflex points.  It can cause sensitization of the skin and can be diluted one drop to one drop with Fractionated Coconut Oil to reduce this sensitivity.  This oil can be diffused or taken orally with one drop oil in 1 tsp honey, in 4 oz of beverage, or placing 1-2 drops under the tongue.  Use with caution while pregnant or dealing with high blood pressure.

Peppermint Essential Oil — 14 Comments

  1. For nearly 30 years, I have suffered from horrific hive. Not little itchies, but massive, go into anaphylaxis shock and die type hives that covered my entire body. One doctor said he oukdnt believe I was till conscious because my “lips are five inches from you chin.” I was pumped full of steroids for two decades. Five years ago, they started using the same autoimmune supprssors they give kidney transplant patients. It’s been awful. Last fall, it was determined I was allergic to the dental implant I received after a terrible car accident. They were removed and replaced with 100% porcelain. But the doctor said my immune system may be so damaged, I may not recover. I started using lavender, frankincense, myrrh, zendichrine, the vitamins, melaleuca, on guard, clove, ylang ylang, and peppermint. After nearly 30 years, the hives are gone and I’m starting to decrease the immune supprssors!!! This is a miracle! Many times, I thought I was going to die. The torture was unbearable. The relief these oils bring me – not to mention the detoxing! – is far superior to any medicine I have ever taken. Thank you for saving my life and my quality of life!

  2. I have suffered from frequent migraine headaches and headaches on a daily basis. I have taken quite a lot of over-the-counter as well as prescription medication. I just love my peppermint oil because I rub a little on my temples, behind my ears and at the bottom of my hairline and it is almost instant relief. It has helped me avoid taking tons of ibuprofen, excedrin and tylenol (which I know is harmful to the liver, but felt I needed to cut the pain somehow), and only occasionally need my prescription migraine medication. This has helped me in my work place so much! And bonus – it smells great! Like peppermint lifesavers!

  3. oh peppermint! Why didnt I find you earlier. This was a sample given to me and when I run out, there will be more purchased for sure! I am new to using these oils and have only tried a few but this one is one of my favorites! I am prone to migraines. :( Medicine is always hard for me to take because I have a gastro-disease. They are really hard on my stomach so I usually just sleep them off..or am a beast to anyone around me! Until peppermint!!! I had a migraine one day and thought ok now is the time to put these essential oils to the test. So I rubbed lavender on my forehead and pressure points. It was relieved instantly. Wasnt gone, but took all the edge off!! I was able to function! I continued to apply until I no longer had a headache. :) Peppermint is Perfect for me :)

  4. I get headaches that turn to migraines I have tried everything there seems to try out there. I had a friend that I trust and thought she maybe on to soemthing so I ordered some and it came the day that I had been in bed most the day with a mirgrain I had her show me how to use it, it seemed it worked fast and I was able to contuine the night feeling good and getting my kids ready for bed.

  5. I’m prone to having sinus infections and have found that massaging peppermint on the pad of my feet under the middle 3 toes helps wonders (plus the scent is an added bonus) ;)

  6. I lost the feeling in my feet in early 2011 due to multiple sclerosis. When I heard one woman talk about putting peppermint on her feet for energy, I decided to try it. Imagine my excitement when the feeling in my feet started to return! I enjoy this oil as it help me deal with fatigue but I LOVE this oil because I can feel my feet again. Thank you doTERRA!

  7. I am new to essential oils but i do love the peppermint. My son has migraines and it seems to help. Also on a hot day it helps to spray some diluted oil on the back of the neck. you can then shop forever. love the smell
