Peppermint essential oil is one of the most popular essential oils for its many uses and here are some helpful peppermint essential oil tips. This minty oil works well for muscle tension relief, joint pain, headache relief, alleviates sore throats and coughs, calms digestive issues and nausea, creates mental clarity, and it’s an anti-inflammatory.

Additionally, peppermint essential oil clears sinuses and helps allergies by relaxing nasal passages. When added to coconut oil, peppermint essential oil can also help soothe inflammation due to sun burns. This potent oil also acts as a bug repellent because the smell deters many pests.

Peppermint essential oil can also be added to homemade oral products such as toothpaste and mouthwash and it helps promote hair growth by stimulating hair follicles.


Try combining peppermint with these refreshing blends in a diffuser - tea tree and lemon, tangerine and rosemary, eucalyptus and lavender, or bergamot and lemon.

TIP: Relieve muscle tension easily by applying peppermint essential oil directly to the sore spot (or mix with a little coconut oil). I frequently use this method to relieve neck tension or pain. Initially, you don't feel much, but after a few minutes a cooling effect takes place and the relief begins.
