Peppermint Essential Oil
Almost everyone recognizes the smell of peppermint, typically from peppermint candy. While it does taste great, there are other uses for peppermint as well. Peppermint essential oil can be used in a number of different ways to help you feel healthier, relax, and relieve pain.
How is Peppermint Oil Commonly Used?
When most people think about peppermint, they think about the candies. Most of the time, essential oils are not used in food or beverages because they’re too concentrated. Instead, peppermint leaves are used. Peppermint essential oil, on the other hand, is usually added to soaps or cosmetics. It may also be added to cleaning supplies or other products to boost the smell.
How is Peppermint Oil Used at Home?
There are three main ways to use peppermint essential oil at home: topically, in a bath, or in a diffuser. In almost all instances, only a few drops at a time should be used. Peppermint essential oil is highly concentrated, so one bottle can go a long way. In some cases, they can also be combined with other essential oils to provide further health benefits and to help in other ways as well.
How Can Peppermint Oil be Used Topically?
To be used topically, peppermint essential oil is usually added to a carrier oil like coconut oil. Then, it can be applied to the part of the body that needs it. Peppermint essential oils can be used as a natural pain killer and muscle relaxant, to relieve tension headaches, to improve skin health, and to repel bugs.
What are the Benefits of Peppermint Oil in a Diffuser?
Around 5 to 10 drops can be used in a diffuser and peppermint essential oil can be used with other essential oils. Along with helping the house smell fantastic, peppermint essential oil also helps with sinus and respiratory issues. They’re great for seasonal allergies and can even help with weight loss. The smell of the peppermint can help relieve the urge to eat. Some people also have success using the aroma from peppermint essential oils to help with nausea.
How is Peppermint Oil Used in a Bath?
Bath time can be made a little more enjoyable with the addition of peppermint oil. The aroma helps with the same issues as if the peppermint essential oils were in a diffuser, plus with other issues as well. As little as 5 to 10 drops in a tub of warm water can help relieve muscle and joint pain, help relieve itchiness, provide stress relief, and help with swollen feet. It really doesn’t take much to see the benefits of peppermint essential oil in a warm bath and they can be combined with other essential oils for further health benefits.
Even just adding a few drops around your home can help make your house smell better and help keep bugs away. Try a little bit of peppermint essential oil in your home today to learn more about how beneficial it can be.
