If you want to start using natural essential oils in your home medicine cabinet, the ones I suggest for your basic care kit are lavender, tea tree, peppermint, chamomile, eucalyptus, geranium, rosemary, thyme, lemon, and clove. These essential oils are chosen for their medical properties first 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 aid, 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! The best property of peppermint essential oil for me is that it is a natural stimulant. I use it in the shower to help get me going in the mornings and also sniff it when I get sleepy at work, it helps me stay awake so I don’t have to drink a gallon of coffee.
