Common Scents

A series where we learn about different oils, their uses, and why they're so wonderful!

 

Peppermint

 

What is it?

Peppermint, or by its scientific name Mentha x Piperita, is a hybrid mint and is a cross between watermint and spearmint. It has been used since ancient Egyptian times and is lauded for its cooling and uplifting properties.

 

Uses

Peppermint has many uses as an essential oil. Its cooling properties have been noted to help aid muscle relief and joint pain, while its uplifting properties have allowed the oil to find use as an effective energizer.

 

Use this refreshing oil for:

  • Muscle pain and join pain relief

  • Headache relief

  • Fresh breath

  • Sinus relief

  • To combat skin inflammation

 

One of my favorite brands: 

Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
