 Anti-inflammatory properties reveal the potency of this essential oil.
The next time you plan a drive across the country, take along a bottle of peppermint oil.
For greater focus and concentration place a drop of oil near the temples, away from your eyes.
Massage therapists blend this essential oil in a carrier oil to soothe sore muscles.
In my dental practice it is one of my favorite essential oils.
A drop on your toothbrush with toothpaste moistened reduces gingivitis.
Gums bleed when gingivitis is evident, an inflammatory process.
It can be massaged into the Masseter muscles to facilitate greater opening and closing of the mandible.
In literature you will find it stated that inhaling peppermint essential oil can help control the appetite.
Also inhaling it immediately unclogs sinuses and reduces a scratchy throat.
I place the oil in a scarf along with Tea Tree and Eucalyptus oils.
Dripping and wrapping the oils in a scarf around my neck provide additional protection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The menthol is also known to penetrate the sinuses in a cleansing action.
In a carrier oil like Cold pressed Castor oil apply the peppermint oil to the chest in a gentile rubbing action to reduce congestion.
Pathogens have a difficult time growing in this environment due to the release of menthol vapors.
The therapeutic dose of peppermint oil as a mouth and throat rinse is one drop of oil to one ounce of water.
Eucalyptus is a genus of over seven hundred species of flowering tree and shrubs in the myrtle family.
Eucalyptus may relieve cold symptoms, dry skin, reduce pain, promote relaxation, help keep teeth healthy and act as a natural insect repellent.
The essential oil is also known as an anti-viral oil.
Eucalyptus and peppermint oils are anti-inflammatory and ant-viral.
And they are a great combination during cold and flu season.
Peppermint oil and inflammation should be further studied to understand the importance of this essential oil.
