I successfully use Peppermint essential oils to relieve anxiety on a regular basis. Its application soothes and uplifts. What’s more, I feel the effects within minutes of applying the essential oil to spots on my body or in a diffuser as aromatherapy.
Here is a list of uses I’ve curated to help you on your journey. Remember, I won’t write about anything unless I use it personally. And, of course, you may have differing results. I’m not a scientist nor a doctor. I simply like to write about things that work for me
Elevate Your Mood
Anxiety characterizes by unrelenting worry, anticipation, and tension. Depression characterizes by low energy, crying, dark emotions, and other unpleasant feelings. I personally use peppermint essential oil to experience a calmness that allows me to relax and have a nicer view of the world around me. This means relief of sadness, fear, and therefore, anxiety.
Fast Pain Reliever
Because of its “cool” effect, it is a regular practice of mine to use this Essential Oil to relieve muscle pain. I apply a small amount to the stressed muscle and gently rub it in. The cooling properties go to work immediately to reduce minor pain and swelling. Some people reportedly like to combine Peppermint and tea tree essential oils for added benefit. However, test it on your skin and if you find it irritating, then I recommend that you dilute it with either jojoba oil or coconut oil.
Relieve Mental Fatigue
Peppermint adds clarity to thought processes. It literally gives a mental boost which makes it a great way to start the day. Add it to your shower routine by combining it with filtered water and lemons. Or, add a few drops to your skincare regimen to give your skin a naturally relaxed yet stimulating effect. This increases a positive outlook while at the same time, gives an overall relaxed approach to the day.
Peppermint is probably one of the easiest plants to grow in your indoor or outdoor garden. In fact, I recommend that you grow it in a self-contained unit such as its own tub or raised garden space. Otherwise, it will take over your entire garden. But, with that caution, you can have fresh peppermint leaves year round. How organically cool is that?
Another way to enjoy the benefits of Peppermint is as a tea made either from store-bought tea leaves or your own organically grown plants. Tip: Peppermint is in the same family of herbs with Rosemary and Sage which also contain flavonoids and phenolic acids*.
Grow Your Own Peppermint
If you want to grow your own organic peppermint at home, you will be happy to know that it is very easy to grow. Some would say “too easy”. Peppermint can easily take over your entire garden. I like to grow peppermint in containers for this reason.
This will be shipped with free self-watering green pot wish customized labels with herb names or what you want. These plants are all organic with a strong root system. All plants come with a FREE GIFT.
Peppermint Essential Oils
Use this amazing peppermint essential oil throughout the day to lift your spirits and make your steps a little bit lighter. It will also help you focus if you’re working or studying. Apply this to the back of your neck or to your temples and you will feel the effects quite soon.
Drink Peppermint Tea Before Bedtime
If you want to get drowsy and fall into a deep relaxing slumber, drink peppermint tea before going to bed. I love the design of this bright Celestial Seasonings packaging, but what’s inside is the real treat. That is, if you like the soothing qualities of drinking a warm herbal tea, this one is special.
