For those of you who want to start using natural essential oils in your home medicine cabinet, the ones I suggest are lavender, tea tree, peppermint, chamomile, eucalyptus, geranium, rosemary, thyme, lemon, and clove. Essential oils are chosen first for their medical properties and second for their ability to take care of a broad range of health problems. Today, let’s talk about peppermint essential oil.

Peppermint has been used by many cultures (Egyptians, Chinese, and American Indians) for thousands of years because of its healthful properties. It is a superb digestive, it helps the respiratory system and promotes circulation, it is an anti-inflammatory and it is an antiseptic. These qualities make peppermint oil excellent to use in the treatment of indigestion, flatulence, bad breath, headaches and migraines, skin irritations, toothache, and fatigue. It can also help to keep pests like mice, fleas, and ants away!
