Peppermint is a fresh, stimulating oil, and when diffused can help enhance alertness and improve energy levels. Can assist with headaches and tension. Because of its menthol content, Peppermint has a lovely cooling effect on the skin.
Peppermint can be diluted in carrier oil and applied to the temples and back of the neck when having head and neck tension. Add, well-diluted, to a carrier oil for an uplifting massage. It is also helpful to sniff when having a queasy stomach. Also useful at the end of a long day as a foot-soak, add a few drops to ½ cup of epsom salt dissolved in warm water.
