6 Benefits of Diffusing Peppermint Oil with Diffuser Blends

Have you ever just been overwhelmingly fatigued? I am sure most people can answer yes. One simple way to counteract fatigue is by diffusing peppermint oil.

Peppermint essential oil is one of my favorite oils to diffuse for health and wellness. It has such a refreshing and energizing aroma with so many benefits.

Peppermint oil (Mentha x piperita) has a wonderful sweet and minty fresh aroma that is cool and clearing. If you need a bottle, here is a favorite organic peppermint essential oil:

6 Benefits of Diffusing Peppermint Oil

Here are 6 reasons why I love to diffuse peppermint oil in my home.

1. Opens Up Breathing

When taking a deep breath isn't happening easy, peppermint oil can be your friend. This wonderfully minty oil can open breathing while reducing inflammation and congestion. Menthol and menthone are two chemical components present in peppermint, they have decongestant and mucolytic (thins mucus) actions.

5. Eliminates Mental & Physical Fatigue

Peppermint is one of the best energizing and stimulating oils available. It is useful for both mental and physical fatigue. Here is an interesting fact about peppermint:

"The evidence shows that Peppermint oil both increases alertness, and reduces blood pressure. This is not adaptogenesis, nor is it a contradiction; it’s simply that alertness and blood pressure are controlled by different parts of our nervous system, and the same essential oil can be both 'stimulating' and 'depressing' at the same time, but to different receptor sites or neurochemical pathways." -Robert Tisserand

6. Eases Upset Stomach

Peppermint is a popular remedy for counteracting nausea due to its antiemetic properties. A strong cup of herbal peppermint tea (this is my favorite) and a few drops of peppermint oil in the diffuser can be a great fix for an upset stomach.
