Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil 

Peppermint essential oil can be used in various applications and many use it as a home remedy to soothe nausea, stomach related issues, including irritable bowel syndrome and PMS, common cold and cough, headaches, muscle aches and more. 

There have been various researches done on the benefits and effects of peppermint oil, and it has been found, that in some cases, peppermint oil has been useful in decreasing nausea intensity in postoperative patients, those undergoing chemotherapy and pregnant women experiencing morning sickness. Peppermint essential oil, and its ‘sister’ oil, wintergreen essential oil, have also been proven to provide pain relief that is almost similar to lidocaine, which is an anaesthetic medication. 

Did you know that peppermint oil is also highly effective for skin and hair issues? In a 2016 research study, it was found that a one per cent solution of concentrated peppermint oil aided in chronic itching, reducing the period and intensity of skin itch. In another study, a three per cent solution of peppermint oil was shown to have promoted hair growth, similar to that of minoxidil. 

Peppermint essential oils can also be used in cosmetic products, such as soaps, cleansers and more. This gives its users a refreshing feeling, perking them up for their day ahead!
