Peppermint oil is a fabulous refreshing and cooling essential oil used to stimulate the mind, increase mental agility and to increase focus. It is also used to cool the skin, reduce redness and calm irritation and itchiness. Excellent to help clear the sinuses and chest when feeling congested. It is well renown for easing spastic colon (stomach cramps), nausea, migraine, headaches, sinus and chest congestion.

Peppermint oil has a long history of use in liniments and balms for the relief of pain, spasms, and arthritic problems.

Peppermint oil has been well studied and documented for its anti-inflammatory, analgaesic, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, digestive, carminative, and fungicidal effects. It is a nervine stimulant, vasoconstrictor, decongestant and has stomachic properties [ref].

Widely used in medicines for relief of symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), it is more effective than placebo, but ingestion does carry a high risk of adverse effects [ref]. It is only advisable to use for short-term relief, under guidance of an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Peppermint is a common ingredient in oral hygiene products, and also one of the ingredients in our awesome Sage & Thyme Mouthwash.
