It's a well studied oil and has proven to be useful for many things! Used topically, Peppermint oil creates a cool, tingling sensation on the skin, making it a favorite for sports massage and an important part of Young Living’s Raindrop Technique. Using with a carrier oil is preferable for many people. Peppermint can also be diffused and can be ingested according to the FDA's list approved for consumption.1

For Seasonal Stuff & Stuffiness
Many use what we call an Allergy Bomb to help reduce the annoyances of outdoor and/or indoor allergens. Combined with Lavender, Lemon and Copiaba, and used consistently, this combo helps you enjoy life again. The combo can be put in a capsule for ease or made into a roller ball for topical application. Our Vitality line (5ml) is labeled and approved for ingestion, but the exact same oil goes in our regular bottles and it's a little cheaper to buy the bigger bottles (15ml).

Peppermint alone, used topically, can help relieve the fog and stuffiness.

Because of the terrible side effects of some of the hair growth products on the market, some toxicology researchers sought better alternatives and got their findings published on NLM. "We found that PEO remarkably promoted hair growth compared to SA and JO, even faster than MXD without significant change of body weight gain and food efficiency." They also said, "In our study, we found that PEO induced very thick and long hair after 4-week topical application and promoted the elongation of hair follicles from the epidermis down to the subcutis..."6

HISTORICAL USES OF PEPPERMINT
Peppermint leaves have been used as a remedy for indigestion since the Ancient Egyptians, and the ancient Greeks and Romans valued it as a stomach soother as well. During the eighteenth century, the herb became popular in Western Europe as a remedy for nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, respiratory infections, and menstrual disorders.

Peppermint was first listed in the London Pharmacopoeia in 1721. In modern times it appears in the British Herbal pharmacopeia as a remedy for intestinal colic, gas, colds, morning sickness, and menstruation pain.
