Peppermint Oil Benefits & Uses

What is peppermint oil good for? Peppermint is one of the most versatile essential oils and has been used to treat health issues for thousands of years. It is an excellent oil for treating headache, muscle aches, joint pain, cold sores, and itching. Peppermint essential oil is also beneficial to relieve common IBS symptoms like pain and bloating.

  • Peppermint is one of the most commonly used essential oils to treat tension headache.
    It contains menthol, which can help relax muscles and ease pain. This oil helps inhibit muscle contractions on the head and neck while stimulating blood flow to that area.

    To relieve headaches, mix 2 to 3 drops of essential oil with favourite massage oil or carrier oil, and massage it onto your temples, the back of your neck, your shoulders, and your chest area.
  • Peppermint helps reduce cramping, pain, and other IBS symptoms. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal disorder that causes uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating and constipation.

    How to use Peppermint for IBS
    To relieve IBS symptoms, mix a few drops of peppermint essential oil with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil and rub it on the lower stomach.

  • Peppermint oil is one of the most widely used to improve cold sores and other herpes symptoms, thanks to its antiviral, antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
    Dilute a few drops with a carrier oil and apply it directly to the cold sore at the first sign.
  • Peppermint can be used as a natural remedy for hair loss. Menthol in Peppermint could potentially improve hair growth and prevent some hair loss. Add a few drops of Peppermint essential oil to shampoo or conditioner daily, and make sure it’s massaged into the scalp.
  • Peppermint oil is a natural way to deter rats, mice, spiders, ants and snakes. To keep both insect and animal pests away, apply 5-7 drops to each cotton ball and place in various locations around the house. You can also make a pest-repellent spray.
