No basic essential oil kit would be complete without peppermint essential oil. It is immensely helpful in all digestive tract problems including indigestion, flatulence, irritable bowel syndrome and stomach derived halitosis. It is also beneficial in respiratory and circulatory system conditions as well being an all around tonic.

Peppermint is an analgesic, antiseptic, cooling, anti-inflammatory essential oil and also has some antifungal properties. It can be used to treat catarrh, headaches, migraines, skin irritations, rheumatism, toothache and fatigue. Small amounts of peppermint can be blended into perfumes or room fragrances to provide a subtle back note. It can be used in cooking and it is a natural pesticide that will keep ants, fleas and mice away. Don’t forget to add peppermint essential oil to your basic care kit.
