Peppermint Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Home / Wellness / Peppermint Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

I want you to stop what you are doing. You are about to experience 1 drop of peppermint essential oil. Close your eyes and imagine the aroma of 28 cups of peppermint tea. Yes, 1 drop is equal to 28 cups of tea.

Breathe long and deep. Feel the minty chill flow through your nostrils, cooling the back of your throat as it travels to your lungs. Enjoy the moment of rest as the aromatic compounds invigorate your mind and body.
Peppermint is my favorite oil to share with people because the experience is unforgettable. I never go anywhere without peppermint oil, not only because I love sharing it, but because it’s a must-have oil for a tired, scattered mom like me.


Practical uses for peppermint essential oil:

Emotionally, peppermint essential oil is considered The Oil of a Buoyant Heart. It helps invigorate the spirit and promote joy. It’s a great oil to use aromatically when you need a quick “breather” to reboot your day.

How do you use peppermint essential oil in your home?


Essential Oil Quality: The essential oil industry is not a regulated industry which means it’s difficult to know which brands you can trust to be truly 100% certified pure therapeutic grade and safe for your whole family. I did my research to find a brand I can trust. If you want to learn about the brand I personally use or order essential oils for your home, please email
