If you look to the ancient Egyptian Ebers Papyrus in 1550 BC, you’d be amazed at how far back the use of mint dates. Cited to relieve flatulence way back in the day, this calming element was also used to scent the body of the deceased at the final send off.
Fast forward to today and beyond the pursuit of fresh breath, the uses of peppermint are endless. From being an effective antiseptic, peppermint relieves fevers, motion sickness, migraines, sinusitis, coughing and colds. Topical application on the other hand, brings about a relief from itching, muscle pain and headaches.
Research has also shown that inhaling peppermint can also be useful in combatting nausea. It is believed the scent of peppermint can relax the gastric muscles and keep them from over contracting.
Peppermint is multi-faced in the way it provides support for your mental and emotional wellbeing. Peppermint remedies fatigue and effectively counters emotional dips that could be brought about by grief, worry or any other kind of emotional distress.
For topical application dilute peppermint with a carrier oil. For quick relief from nausea or a headache, pop that top open and take a deep breath.
