PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
Peppermint essential oil has been used by ancient cultures throughout Europe and Asia for centuries. Today, it is used clinically for its anti-nausea benefits due to its soothing effect on the stomach and colon, as well as its ability to mitigate muscle spasms. Peppermint oil is also well known for its natural menthol that can be used to reduce our perception of pain.
Peppermint is a vibrant green plant that is a hybrid of spearmint and watermint. The essential oil is distilled through steaming the flowering part of the plant and includes mostly menthol and menthone.

Peppermint Essential Oil Benefits
Almost every essential oil is known for its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties externally, but few can claim these benefits internally. One of the main benefits of peppermint essential oils includes the ability to freshen bad breath and soothe digestive issues. In addition to internal uses, peppermint essential oil can also be used on skin and muscles to reduce pain.
Simply inhaling the scent of peppermint oil can actually reduce our pain levels and trick the mind into thinking that it is experiencing a cooling, numbing sensation. Using lotions and creams with just a few drops of peppermint essential oil can relieve sore muscles. Applying the oil topically also reduces bacterial activity on the skin and decreases the trigger conditions for acne to develop.
