Healing with Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil has been used as a tonic for centuries , and its fresh aroma is evident in toothpastes and mouthwashes today. Peppermint is a good digestive stimulant; it aids the digestion of fats and strengthens liver function.

This makes it an excellent oil for relieving indigestion and treating gastric fevers and diarrhea.

Peppermint stimulates the body's circulation, reviving aching muscles and joints. It is a powerful decongestant and is used to treat fevers and respiratory infections. It also acts as a good deodorant.

Peppermint complements other decongestant oils, especially Eucalyptus and Thyme, which work to boost the body's immune system. Its aroma can also help to cool feelings of anger, hysteria or emotional burnout.
