Peppermint Essential Oil


Peppermint essential oil is one of the most recognized aromas  worldwide.  Inhaling this stimulating oil improves mental clarity and alertness, and can help keep us awake and alert.  It aids in increasing concentration and mental endurance.

Energetically, peppermint dispels pride and inferiority.  It is emotionally balancing.

It stimulates the brain, nerve cells and metabolism, and prevents a downward spiral in consciousness–useful following trauma or when dark emotions set in.  It is a very uplifting treatment for depression.

Observations and Anecdotal Information

Peppermint is one of the great liver and gall bladder system regenerators.  It aids hepatitis recovery, liver degeneration, and cirrhosis.  It should be properly diluted and taken internally for these purposes.

It is such a great treatment for shock and trauma that I usually keep some in the car and around the house for emergencies.  If someone is injured and shows signs of going into shock, just a drop or two of diluted peppermint  in water (under the tongue) can bring them back and dispel symptoms almost instantly.

Peppermint essential oil is a good remedy for ringworm and other fungal infections, when applied topically.

It opens lymphatic circulation, and releases blockage in the lymph system.

It also increases the white blood cell count when it is low.  Peppermint is universal, and has so many uses that it is one of my most important oils to keep on hand!

  • Keep all essential oils away from eyes.
  • Store in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
