For fatigue
If your mind is overtaxed and fatigued, you are likely to have trouble focusing and remembering. The good news is that you can re-energize your mind and memory by simply inhaling the fresh, pure scent of peppermint oil in an aromatic lamp. Combine peppermint oil with lemon oil for the greatest benefit.

8 drops of peppermint oil
5 drops of lemon oil

Therapeutic effect
Peppermint oil has cooling, fever reducing and antiseptic properties, largely due to high levels of menthol, which is an antibacterial and anesthetic. The oil helps cure colds, bronchitis and sinus infections. It also aids healthy digestion by increasing digestive, liver and gallbladder secretions and relaxes cramped intestinal muscles. Plus, the scent clears the mind and eases mental tension.

For opening nasal passages
The high menthol content of peppermint oil reduces inflammation in the nasal passages during a cold, opening them up and improving breathing.

For headaches
Mix a base oil, such as sweet almond oil, with peppermint oil and rub a few drops on your forehead and the nape of your neck. This can rapidly alleviate the pain of a headache and migraine.

For focusing the mind
Whenever you are weary and tense at the end of a taxing day, peppermint oil is a remedy that will revitalize you. It clears your thoughts and allows you to breathe deeply and freely again.

For a cleansing sauna
Regular visits to a sauna stimulate the body's own defenses. You can increase the detoxifying, fortifying effect of the sauna by adding a few drops of peppermint oil to the water poured on the sauna coals.

For fresh breath
Peppermint oil is an excellent natural alternative to mouthwash. It has a disinfectant effect, inhibits infection and prevents cavities and gum disease, while combating bad breath at the same time.

Extra Tip
For motion sickness and nausea, place a few drops of peppermint oil on a cloth. Hold the cloth in front of your mouth and nose and breathe in deeply for a few seconds.

Effective for easing colds, sinus infections, bronchitis, fever, coughs, bad breath, headaches, intestinal cramps, diarrhea and mental exhaustion

Caution!
Do not treat children with peppermint oil, since the high menthol content can irritate sensitive mucosa. If you have chills, avoid peppermint oil, because of its intense cooling properties. Keep your eyes tightly shut when inhaling peppermint oil, as the vapors can irritate them. The oil may also irritate sensitive skin. Pregnant and nursing women should avoid using the oil altogether.
