Peppermint essential oil can be used three different ways: internally, aromatically, and topically. You can take this oil internally by dropping one drop under the tongue, mixing one drop in 4oz of water, or adding a drop to a veggie capsule and swallowing. It can be used topically to the area of concern, bottom of feet, and on the pulse points. You can dilute it in a carrier oil or make a roller bottle for easy application. To make a roller bottle add 15-20 drops peppermint essential oil to a 10mL roller bottle and fill the rest of the way with fractionated coconut oil. For aromatic use, add 4-6 drops to a diffuser or add 1-2 drops to the palm of your hands, cuff over the nose, and breathe in. You can also breathe peppermint right out of the bottle for aromatic benefits.
Peppermint essential oil is great for immune support and overall wellness of the body. You can use peppermint for digestive support by applying it topically to the stomach and taking it internally. Try peppermint oil when dealing with motion sickness, upset stomach, queasiness, gas, bloating, and indigestion.
You can apply peppermint to the chest, bottom of the feet, and to the bridge of the nose for healthy respiratory support. This oil can help break up mucus and promote clear breathing. You can use this oil for relief from seasonal discomforts. I like diffusing this oil in the bedroom over night when we have any type of respiratory issues.
Peppermint oil has a cooling effect on the body and can relieve tension caused by a headache. Apply to the temples and back of neck for headache relief. Be sure not to get it to close to your eyes, it will burn! It can also be used for sore muscles, aches, pains, and stiffness. Apply topically to the area of concern.
Peppermint oil can be used to assist mood and promote focus, concentration, and boost energy. You can diffuse peppermint in a diffuser or breathe it right out of the bottle for these effects. Peppermint can be beneficial when you are trying to get a task done or in the afternoon when you need a boost of energy to get through the day.
My favorite use for peppermint essential oil is for a natural bug repellant. Most bugs including: ants, beetles, caterpillars, fleas, flies, lice, mosquitos, moths, garden bugs, and spiders do NOT like peppermint! Adding 5-10 drops of peppermint oil to a spray bottle can make a great natural bug repellent for your house, garden, and yourself. I had an ant problem in my kitchen and I sprayed around the counters, around the door, and along the baseboards and the ants went away. I love having a natural repellant instead of using chemicals in my home. I also used an all natural spray with peppermint in my garden this year. You can check that video out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGm9W_KFLCc&t=42s
You can also use peppermint essential oil for cooking. My favorite is adding a drop into brownie batter to make mint chocolate brownies! You can use a drop in any dish or drink that calls for mint. If one drop is to much you can do the “toothpick drop”, by putting the tip of a toothpick in the oil then stirring that into the recipe.
As you can see, peppermint essential oil can be used for so many things! What are your favorite peppermint benefits? Share your thoughts in the comments below! I love hearing from you!
