The Ancient Essential Oil That Fights Fatigue, Pains, Arthritis And Nausea

During a hard day of work, especially for a homesteader, peppermint essential oil can be quite useful. Beginning in the morning, it can energize your mind and help you get moving. Need a pick-me-up after lunch or later in the day? Peppermint oil can help you there, too, by reviving depleted energy you need to get your work finished. Then, after the long workday, because of peppermint oil’s warming properties, it can be used to treat sore muscles and arthritis.

Another common use for peppermint oil is that it helps reduce nausea and indigestion.

Do you feel that you sometimes have trouble focusing or concentrating? Look no further than peppermint essential oil with its revitalizing effects on the mind!

Peppermint was prized for health reason in Japan and China for centuries and has been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 1000 BC.

Peppermint is a hybrid of spearmint and water mint, and is, by far, the most pungent mint. It’s a common herb with tough, dark stems and serrated green leaves that can be found growing almost anywhere.

Peppermint essential oil is nearly one-third menthol, which is why it invigorates and clears the head.

The essential oil has a cooling, pungent, menthol aroma, with clean, sweet top notes. In aromatherapy, it is excellent for headaches, mental fatigue, concentration, muscular pain, sunburn, insect bites, nausea, indigestion and for menopausal hot flashes.

Massages, baths, inhalation and compresses are all efficient ways to utilize the properties of peppermint essential oil. A few drops on a tissue can clear your head, whether you’re suffering from a cold or mental fatigue, and can relieve headaches or any nausea, from travel to morning sickness. Add several drops to a basin to refresh tired feet, or to a bath to relieve sore muscles. (Because of peppermint oil’s potency, use sparingly in baths at first to make sure you don’t have any adverse reactions to it, and always make sure to dilute it with a carrier oil before applying it to your skin.)

Over time, I have developed mixtures that I feel help me on a daily basis. I developed these recipes with scent in mind while creating the maximum effect of the oils’ health properties.

1. Fatigue

More people than ever complain of being tired these days. Too much work, too many demands and stresses, and too little leisure or relaxation are probably to blame.
