The Power of Peppermint and Peppermint Oil

Peppermint. Just the word itself can conjure up visions and sensations of a cooling, revitalizing taste, fragrance or experience.

In fact, peppermint has been a favorite herb since ancient times due to its distinct effects on the senses and for its beneficial properties.† Its well-regarded effects and long history have earned it a designation or title of being viewed as among “the world’s oldest health supporters.”†

Peppermint is an herb that belongs to the Lamiaceae family in the genus Mentha and botanically named Mentha piperita. Originally native to Europe, peppermint is now cultivated in nearly all regions globally, growing well in shady conditions and featuring lance-shaped, purple-veined and dark-green leaves with purple colored flowers. There are more than 20 varieties of mint herbs that exhibit a wide range of color, fragrance and flavor.

Speaking of fragrance and flavor . . . peppermint has a characteristic refreshingly cool-breeze sensation when tasted and on the throat when ingested, or on the nasal passages when inhaled. This cool quality of mint is due to its content of menthol, the essential oil found in its fresh leaves and in its stem.

Due to peppermint’s presence of menthol, menthone and menthyl esters, peppermint and peppermint oil are found widely in soap, shampoo, toothpaste, chewing gum and more.

As an added perk, peppermint oil contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, iron, magnesium, calcium, folate, potassium and even omega-3 fatty acids. It’s also a high-powered antioxidant.†

Generally speaking, peppermint is regarded as having the health benefits of supporting healthy digestion and respiratory health as well as offering relief from overall discomfort.†

Some uses and benefits of peppermint essential oil include:

  • Commonly found in oral health products
  • Promotes healthy respiratory function and clear breathing†
  • Helps reduce bloating, gas and occasional indigestion†
  • For a morning energy boost, rub peppermint oil on your temples after you wake up.
  • Diffuse when feeling fatigued or low on energy.
  • Add to shampoo or conditioner for a stimulating hair massage.
  • Natural bug repellent
  • Spritz around windows and doors.
  • Diffuse during study time.
  • Use topically to relieve feelings of tension.†
  • Take one or two drops in a veggie capsule to alleviate occasional stomach upset.†
  • Promotes digestive health†
  • Add two or three drops to your favorite smoothie recipe for a refreshing twist.
  • Place one drop in your mouth to help freshen breath.
  • Add to a cold-water compress or foot bath to cool off when overheated.
  • Inhale for a non-stimulant, invigorating pick-me-up during long drives.
  • Blends well with lavender for a soothing massage blend
  • Place one drop in palm of hand with one drop of orange essential oil and one drop of frankincense oil and inhale for a midday pick-me-up.

Overall, peppermint oil blends well with a variety of other essential oils, including lemon, lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary and marjoram. Many aromatherapists and herbalists routinely use peppermint oil in their aromatic combinations.

About NUMA Organic Essential Oils

I co-founded NUMA with Jordan Rubin, the New York Times best-selling author of The Maker’s Diet, founder of Garden of Life and Beyond Organic.

Together, we traveled the world looking for purest and highest quality essential oils available. In all, we tested more than 300 different varieties. From that testing, we hand-selected just 12 oils that made the cut.

Those 12 hand-selected oils became the foundation of our line of NUMA Essentials essential oils.

NUMA comes from the ancient Greek word pneuma, meaning “breath of life.”

Both Jordan and I firmly believe that essential oils are a vital component of any health regimen and healthy lifestyle.

We’ve both rigorously tested each NUMA Essentials essential oil in order to bring you nothing but the purest, therapeutic-grade, farm-to-your-front-door oils around.

In fact, every NUMA essential oil has four core values that we will not compromise on. Those values drive everything we do with our NUMA Organic Essential Oils.
