Peppermint Essential is a very versatile oil. It’s good for calming itchy skin (you just need to add one drop to your bath)
It may also calm upset tummys – try diluting it in a carrier oil and then massaging the affected area in a clockwise direction. Massage treatment may also help improve digestion and reduce flatulence.
You may also find it useful in a foot bath (not more than 3 drops) to cool and deodorise feet.
Good to use in conjunction with Lavender and Marjoram during winter, either as a chest rub (diluted with carrier oils) or to burn or vaporise when it will help to clear a blocked nose and congested sinuses.
Peppermint has a lovely cooling action which can also help to clear nasal passages when used in a steam inhalation.
When blended with a cream it can reduce the irritation caused by sunburn and ease the redness of inflamed skin as well as reducing itchiness.
When vaporised it can also act as a mental stimulant, refreshing the mind and boosting concentration.
It can ease headaches, cool and calm anger and hysteria.
Peppermint oil should be avoided late at night and by insomniacs.
