Cool Stuff About Peppermint Oil

Peppermint has one of the highest levels of menthol found in an essential oil. It’s also one of the most versatile oil. However, that makes it one of the most adulterated or faked oils on the market (EVEN if the bottle says others, 3rd party testers often find “corn mint” – a cheap alternative that doesn’t do the same things). One more reason to stick with doTERRA and their ridiculous number of checks and balances to ensure purity from growers.

Other Health Benefits:

  • Supports a healthy respiratory function, opening up airways
  • Promotes digestive health of all sorts
  • Natural ant repellent
  • Soothes muscle and joint discomfort, cramps, etc
  • Cooling to the skin, tissues, and body when overheated or unwell
  • Popular for hot flashes when combined with Balance and Clary Sage

How to Use Peppermint Essential Oil:

  • Use up to 4-6 drops in your diffuser. (Careful; it’s strong.)
  • Use in cooking recipes (start with toothpick amount).
  • Dilute for internal use in a capsule.
  • For physical uses, dilute and apply to area of concern.
  • For emotional uses, dilute and apply to heart center, or other energy centers.

Precautions: Avoid the eyes, inner ears, or other sensitive areas, unless you’re sure you know what you’re doing. Watch for skin sensitization. If irritation occurs, do not add water; apply Fractionated Coconut or other carrier oils and wipe off. Use mindfully during pregnancy. Do not use internally if you have reflux symptoms.. (Opt for Cardamom or other digestive oils instead.) Do not apply to a child’s face or chest (other areas or diffusing are okay).
