Peppermint Essential Oil is a very versatile oil.

 

Peppermint is good for calming itchy skin (you just need to add one drop to your bath). It may also calm an upset tummy. Try diluting it in a carrier oil and then massaging the affected area in a clockwise direction. Massage treatment may also help improve digestion and reduce flatulence.

You may also find peppermint Essential Oil useful in a foot bath (not more than 3 drops) to cool and deodorise feet.

 

Peppermint Oil is good to use in conjunction with Lavender and Marjoram during winter, either as a chest rub (diluted with carrier oils) or to burn or vaporise when it will help to clear a blocked nose and congested sinuses. Peppermint has a lovely cooling action which can also help to clear nasal passages when used in a steam inhalation.

 

When blended with a cream Peppermint Oil can reduce the irritation caused by sunburn and ease the redness of inflamed skin as well as reducing itchiness.

 

When burned or vaporised it can also act as a mental stimulant, refreshing the mind and boosting concentration. It can ease headaches, cool and calm anger and hysteria.

 

Peppermint Oil is also a useful deterrent for vermin - e.g. mice, rats, ants and cockroaches, especially when combined with Eucalyptus.

 

Peppermint oil should be avoided late at night and by insomniacs.
