Description

Peppermint essential oil is said to be good for ailments like asthma, colic, fever, flatulence, headache, nausea, chest congestion and vertigo. This oil is supposed to be excellent for mental fatigue and depression, refreshing and stimulating with its menthol content.

Essential oils are extracted from various plant parts like flowers, leaves, stems, roots, seeds, bark, resin or fruit rinds. Each plant contains only a tiny percentage of essential oil, so several kilos of the plant are harvested to extract a few millilitres of oil.

Therefore, these oils are highly concentrated and usually dispensed in drops, or mixed with a base oil for massages.

They contain hundreds of therapeutic constituents and are used in personal products, aromatherapy, and for sanitary and healthcare reasons.

Usage

  • It is good for the skin and is used in lotions to treat sunburn, itchiness or inflamed skin.
  • It helps fight bad breath and gum infections when used in mouthwashes.
  • When used in an oil burner it is not only therapeutic it also keeps away mosquitoes and other insects.

More Info

  • Peppermint is native to the Mediterranean but is now grown in other countries in Europe, America, and Asia.
  • Discoveries prove that peppermint has been used since ancient times in Egypt, Greece, Rome, China and Japan.
  • According to Greek myth, a nymph called Mentha was turned, in a fit of anger, into a mint plant by her lover’s wife Persephone.
