Peppermint - it's fresh, nostalgic, and instantly recognizable!!

Peppermint Essential Oil is invigorating and livens up your senses while inspiring a sense of calm. It's a well studied oil and has proven to be useful for many things! Used topically for the first time, you'll want to use a carrier oil if you are using Young Living's Peppermint. Our oils are generally much stronger than others on the market because they are pure, neat, undiluted oils held to the highest standard.

Peppermint is often diffused because of the pep in your step it gives you, but it according to the FDA can be ingested since it is on their list of approved oils for consumption1. You'd be surprised how many essential oils are on their list, and we carry most of them! As for peppermint, I love it in my water but a little goes a looong way! And remember that you can only use essential oils in stainless steel or glass, as they will ruin your plastic.

For Your Mind
When your day is dragging on and on, you're having a hard time concentrating or you need a lift before a vigorous workout Peppermint EO applied to your head base of neck and throat may give you just what you need to be on the top of your game. The refreshing aroma offers a boost of positivity so diffusing it is a great idea too! It pairs nicely with Lavender, Rosemary, Spearmint, or Sage for a softer scent.

For Your Muscles
Peppermint is a key ingredient in PanAway, AromaEase, Aroma Siez, Relieve It, and Deep Relief Roll-On essential oil blends because of it's powerful effect soothing sore muscles.2

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.

For Exercise Performance
An article on the NIH (National Institute of Health) site titled, "Instant Effects of Peppermint Essential oil on The Physiological Parameter and Exercise Performance" share some evidence that ingesting Peppermint Vitality may increase exercise performance while stabilizing your body.3

For Your Gut
The conclusion of an article about IBS confirms that... "In the most comprehensive meta-analysis to date, PO was shown to be a safe and effective therapy for pain and global symptoms in adults with IBS." The article was found of and titled, "The Impact of Peppermint Oil On The Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Meta-analysis Of The Pooled Clinical Data".4

"It appears that peppermint oil may have several mechanisms of action including: smooth muscle relaxation... anti-microbial effects; anti-inflammatory activity; modulation of psychosocial distress.... 
Peppermint oil has been found to affect esophageal, gastric, small bowel, gallbladder, and colonic physiology.... Placebo controlled studies support its use in irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, childhood functional abdominal pain, and postoperative nausea." "

One caution when using peppermint for gastrointestinal issues, too much can aggravate reflux symptoms.

For Respiratory Issues (of all sorts)
"In the European Pharmacopoeia, more than 25 essential oils are official. Among them, e.g. the essential oil of anise, bitter fennel fruit, eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree and thyme are frequently used for the treatment of respiratory tract diseases." This quote is from the NIH site in this article, "Essential Oils In The Treatment of Respiratory Tract Diseases Highlighting Their Role in Bacterial Infections and Their Anit-inflammatory Action: A Review".5

"Peppermint oil would help to alleviate asthma by inhibiting the IL-6/JAK2/STAT3 pathway."

For Hair Growth
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

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 pharmacopoeia as a remedy for intestinal colic, gas, colds, morning sickness, and menstruation pain.
