Feature Friday: Peppermint

 


Peppermint is usually one of the first essential oils that people buy!

It’s fresh, clean and invigorating. It has so many wonderful things that it can be used for. As long as you don’t have very young children, it should be in your stash!

Feature Friday Peppermint Product DataSo what do you do with your peppermint? I really love stirring 4 drops into 1/4 cup of Epsom salt and then placed in a basin of warm water for a relaxing but invigorating foot soak. Here are a few other ideas so you can get the most bang for your buck using your peppermint essential oil:

  1. Use a 5 drops of Peppermint with 3 drops of Lemon on a personal inhaler to combat nausea.
  2. Upset stomach? Try combing 3 drops of Peppermint and 3 drops of Ginger and apply in a clockwise motion on the abdomen.
  3. For muscle strains or sprains try using 4 drops of Peppermint with 6 drops of Rosemary in 1 ounce of carrier or unscented lotion. Apply to area of concern.

    1. Peppermint US Western as a smoother, more refined odor than Peppermint because several minor constituents are at slightly different levels.

  1. Hi there. I’ve read that some companies use the whole plant in distilling vs. just the leaves. I understand from my reading that the leaves are the most potent/therapeutic part of the plant so for maximum benefit find an oil that uses just the leaves. Can you confirm if that is your understand also confirm if it is JUST the leaves you use in your peppermint oil? PT will be my vendor of choice for peppermint if yes. Thank you.
