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.

- 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.

The Amazing Qualities of Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is truly nothing short of amazing! In fact, the health benefits of tea tree essential oil are due to its multi-faceted healthy attributes—ones that are recognized and appreciated worldwide.†
The name “tea tree,” however, may be misleading, though, since tea tree oil is not extracted from the plant commonly associated with the beverage known as tea. In fact, it’s not even remotely related to tea oil, which is extracted from the seed of the tea plant.
More accurately, tea tree oil is extracted via steam distillation of twigs and leaves of the tea tree, which goes by the botanical name Melaleuca alternifolia. Often known simply as Melaleuca, tea tree oil is native to Australia—in Southeast Queensland and New South Wales mostly—which explains why it is such a common, popular essential oil there.
And while it’s a favorite in Australia, it’s also become a revered and trusted essential oil worldwide.
Tea tree oil is also made up of some powerful constituents, including alpha pinene, beta pinene, sabinene, myrcene, alpha phellandrene, alpha terpinene, limonene, cineole, gamma terpinene, para cymene, terpinolene, linalool, terpineol and alpha terpineol.
That’s a bunch of scientific names, but the bottom line is that tea tree oil, due to its properties, can provide a holistic, powerful support for health.†
For example, the alpha pinene and other pinenes found in tea tree oil have been noted for supporting bronchial health, supporting a healthy short-term memory while also promoting alertness.†
Likewise, limonene is produced by plants known as terpenes, and limonene is an orange terpene.
Studies indicate that limonene shows promise of supporting healthy cells and healthy liver function†—among other benefits.† In fact, limonene and its related product known as perillic acid, are known to be huge supporters of maintaining healthy cells and keeping the liver in tip-top shape.†
Additionally, linalool is a common element of many essential oils, including tea tree oil, and has been found to be a potent supporter of healthy cells†—and when your cells are healthy, then you can be, too.†
Each element contributes to health, too, and tea tree oil is simply packed with these constituents!†
Truth be told, tea tree oil has such a strong reputation for its health benefits that it’s commonly known as a “go to” among some people, including many Australians who keep this precious essential oil available in their household cabinets.
Here are some uses for and benefits of tea tree essential oil:
- Add one to two drops to water, citrus drinks or veggie caps to support healthy immune system function.†
- Apply to skin after shaving.
- Promotes healthy immune function†
- For occasional skin irritations, apply one to two drops of tea tree essential oil to affected area.†
- Protects against environmental and seasonal threats†
- Combine one or two drops with your facial cleanser or moisturizer for added cleansing properties.
- Well-known for its cleansing and rejuvenating effects on the skin†
- Apply to fingernails and toenails after showering to purify and keep nails looking healthy.†
- Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces to protect against environmental threats.†
- Apply to the bottoms of feet and inside shoes to freshen them.
- Create your own aftershave with tea tree oil and cedarwood.
Tea tree oil is a great blending oil. It blends well with lavender, lemon, cinnamon, clary sage, clove, geranium, myrrh, nutmeg, rosewood, rosemary and thyme essential oils.

Geranium Rose Essential Oil
The plants from which geranium rose essential oil (Pelargonium graveolens) has its origins in South Africa, Madagascar, Egypt, Morocco and Réunion, but became known to European countries such as Spain, France and Italy during the 17th century.
It is a perennial shrub commonly used in hedgerows that has a hairy-like appearance, and stands approximately three feet high and has pointed leaves with serrated edges—and bearing pinkish-white flowers.
There are approximately 700 different varieties of this plant, but only 10 are capable of supplying geranium rose essential oil in adequate quantities, due to the typical garden geranium variety producing far too little oil for successful extraction.
The leaves and stalks of the plant, which bears the scientific name Pelargonium odorantissimum, are what are used for extraction, and the oil is procured via steam distillation.
Pelargonium graveolens, however, is an uncommon Pelargonium species which is native to the Cape Provinces and the Northern Provinces of South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique—and is the form of geranium essential oil you’ll find in NUMA Essentials Geranium Rose Essential Oil.
With a sweet and rosy smell plus a hint of mint, it is mostly colorless, although it can sometimes have a light green hue to it. It’s a crisp, fresh-smelling essential oil which can support adrenal health and a healthy response to stress, nervous system health, mental health, lymphatic system health, healthy detoxification, healthy water balance in the body, circulatory health, blood pressure balance and hormonal balance as well as supporting skin health.†
Geranium rose essential oil is comprised of many powerful components, including a-pinene, myrcene, limonene, menthone, linalool, geranyl acetate, citronellal, geraniol and geranyl butyrate.
While those are scientific names, they translate into geranium rose oil, due to its properties, providing a holistic, powerful support for health.†
For example, the pinene content found in geranium rose oil has been noted for supporting respiratory health, supporting a healthy short-term memory function, while also promoting alertness.†
Additionally, limonene shows promise of supporting healthy cells and healthy liver function†—among other benefits. In fact, limonene and its related product known as perillic acid, are known to be huge supporters of maintaining healthy cells and a healthy liver.†
Likewise, linalool is a common element of many essential oils, including geranium rose oil, and has been found to be a potent supporter of healthy cells†—and when your cells are healthy, then you can be, too, since your cells are foundational to your total makeup.†
Geranium rose essential oil can be used in many ways and offers several benefits, such as:
- Apply directly to skin or enjoy an aromatherapy steam facial to beautify skin.
- Combine with a carrier oil for an amazing massage.
- Reduces the appearance of skin imperfections†
- Combines well with other moisturizers to help balance moisture levels in the skin.
- Add a few drops to shampoo or conditioner for a healthy, vibrant glow.
- Apply to skin after showering for a smoothing effect.
- Apply to underarms following an intense workout or day out in the sun.
- Natural insect repellent
- Promotes feelings of relaxation†
- Promotes even skin tone and healthy complexion†
- Add to your next do-it-yourself potpourri.
- Place one drop in the palm of your hands, rub hands together, cup your hands over your nose and mouth and breathe slowly for a calming, grounding effect.†
Geranium rose oil blends aromatically with lavender, lemon, orange, basil, angelica, bergamot, cedarwood, citronella, lime, clary sage, jasmine, rosemary, neroli and grapefruit essential oils.
