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
