Description:
Peppermint essential oil has an intense, distinctive aroma. It also provides a cooling sensation when used topically, and even a very small amount of the oil can pack quite a punch. The oil, as well as the peppermint plant, contains high amounts of menthol and menthone, which are compounds that have antiseptic, anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral effects. Thus, peppermint oil can help treat a variety of health issues. Since peppermint essential oil is quite strong, you only need a little to enjoy its full effects. This means, of course, that you need to be careful in using it to make sure that you don’t experience side effects.
