Peppermint is popular in many forms, from toothpaste to candy. In the form of essential oil it is a must have for every home. Peppermint essential oil uses span a wide range of benefits. It can replace many over-the-counter products and cleaners.
Peppermint is my second favorite essential oil, just behind lavender essential oil-my first love. I use both everyday and would not want to be without either of them. I suggest if this oil is not on your shelve you consider investing in a bottle.
Peppermint Essential Oil Uses
There are many peppermint essential oil uses. Peppermint can be used to invigorate the senses, ease breathing, for stomach problems, repel insects and so much more.
I have used peppermint on my temples for headaches, on my chest to open my airway, on my feet to help cool me off, inhaled to improve my mental alertness.
This week I used diluted peppermint on my child's neck & spine for fever reduction, and on his chest for helping his breathing. Also great for seasonal allergies. These are only a few things that I use peppermint for in my daily life. It is a very diverse oil and a must have for every home.
Here is a diffuser blend for seasonal allergies: 2 drops of peppermint oil, 2 drops of lemon essential oil and 2 drops of lavender essential oil. Add to your diffuser along with the recommend water amount your diffuser requires.
