Peppermint Essential Oil Benefits
Peppermint essential oil benefits you in these ways: for Indigestion, Fever, Headaches, Tummy Upsets & Cough
I love peppermint! If you love all things minty and refreshing, then peppermint essential oil is the right oil for you.
The benefits of peppermint essential oil is well-known. It is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion and this is the one essential oil I never leave home without.
Pop a bottle in your bag for those emergencies while on the go especially when you’re at the office. It’s an excellent and safe remedy for headaches, fever, nausea, stomach upsets, indigestion and tiredness. You know all these can happen to anyone who works long hours in the office.
And unlike the traditional “minyak angin” or Axe brand oil, peppermint oil smells clean and fresh. Fellow passengers on the MRT will not be annoyed with such a lovely fragrance.
Just so you know, this brand of peppermint essential oil is not only for inhalation and application on your skin.
Surprise, surprise, it can be taken as a supplement. A drop of peppermint essential oil in a glass of warm water helps placate a tummy upset. (Caution: Not all brands of peppermint essential oil can be taken orally so don’t go around ingesting essential oils – check the brand and manufacturer.)

How Is This Essential Oil Differs From Others In the Market:
The cultivation, harvesting, and distillation processes of each batch of essential oils are carefully controlled. Young Living has a strict Seed to Seal process that they adhere to strictly when producing their essential oils and this starts from the farms.
The essential oils are derived from plants grown in US (Whispering Springs Farm, St Maries & Highland Flats Tree Farm – Utah & Idaho), Ecuador (Guayaquil), Oman (Salalah) and France (Simiane-la-Rotonde). Once harvested, the plants are distilled using a proprietary low-temperature, low-pressure steam distillation process to ensure beneficial plant compounds in every batch of essential oil remain uncompromised.
These oils then undergo stringent lab testing at the company’s own labs and third party audits to verify that each bottle of essential oil meets purity and potency standards.
Caution: Possible skin sensitivity. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Dilution recommended for topical use. Dilute before using on sensitive areas such as the face, neck, genital area, etc. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid using on infants and very small children. Avoid using on skin exposed to direct sunlight or UV rays. Do not use near fire, flame, heat or sparks.
What Can Peppermint Essential Oil Be Used For?
This essential oil isn’t just for inhalation or aromatherapy but it can also be ingested – just add a drop to a glass of warm water for a tummy upset.
Add 2-3 drops of peppermint essential oil into a diffuser as aromatherapy. Diffuse your child’s room with this essential oil when he is studying as it helps with alertness and mental concentration.
Place 1-2 drops on the stomach area and massage gently for stomach discomfort.
Massage on the temples to treat a throbbing headache.
Inhale to improve concentration and alertness during your work day. Or place 1-2 drops on your tongue. (According to Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati, peppermint has the ability to improve concentration and mental accuracy.)
Reduce fever by rubbing 2-3 drops of peppermint essential oil on the soles of the feet.
Reduce coughing by rubbing a drop of peppermint essential oil on your chest and throat. Peppermint affects the liver and respiratory systems, according to Jean Valnet, M.D, a pioneer in the field of aromatherapy.
Add to food as a flavouring such as tea. When adding to food, dip a toothpick into the essential oil before you disperse the oil from the toothpick into your food. This essential oil can be very strong so use sparingly.

To relieve a headache, rub peppermint essential oil on the back of your neck and behind the ears.
Prevent overeating by inhaling peppermint essential oil. According to Alan Hirsch, M.D., peppermint has the ability to directly trigger a sense of fullness after meals because it affects the brain’s satiety centre (the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus).
If you’re painting your house, you can mix some peppermint essential oil into your pain to dispel the fumes. The other alternative is to diffuse the room with peppermint essential oil after you’ve painted it.
