Peppermint Oil Benefits
A stimulating essential oil, Peppermint Oil, or Mentha piperita, is a recognizable aroma that can be applied topically (with a carrier), inhaled or diffused. On the skin, it provides a cool, pleasurable feeling and a tingling sensation.
The peppermint plan was born in 1753 as a hybrid offspring of spearmint and water mint plants. Originally used as chewing gum and toothpaste, the oil was also used to alleviate upset stomach and optimal respiratory function.
