What a versatile oil for your wellbeing!

Peppermint oil is very versatile and useful. People have used it for digestive problems, headaches, and pain relief when they are injured. We will focus on how it helps for digestive problems. You may be surprised how many health benefits there are for peppermint oil. It helps with digestion, headaches, stomach aches, and mental alertness.

Digestion is one health use of peppermint oil

For an upset stomach, peppermint oil can be applied topically to the skin above the stomach (near the solar plexus). For children, please delete the oil because it can be too strong for their sensitive skin. Put two drops on your fingertips and rub it on the area just below the heart. You can also put two drops of oil and a cup of tea or warm water and drink it.

Peppermint Oil for Headaches

Have a headache? No problem. Try wrapping a little bit of oil on the temples of your head or on the bottoms of your feet.

Peppermint as a Mental Stimulant

Put two drops under your tongue to help with mental clarity. It can also can help restore a sense of smell.

Make sure you use Peppermint Oil Wisely!

It is important to note that you should always use therapeutic grade essential oil, and we like organic oil but that’s because there’s less chance for pesticides or herbicides to interfere with the therapeutic properties of the oils. If you tend to have the sensitive system, you can test the oil by putting one drop on the crook of your elbow and seeing if it reacts. You can always dilute the oil with the carrier oils such as almond oil, sesame, or even olive oil.
