Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil:Peppermint essential oil is commonly used by aromatherapists for its uplifting, invigorating properties. The peppermint plant is actually a hybrid of the watermint and spearmint plants. The essential oil is produced by extracting the oil from the whole plant through a steam distillation process. The plant is native to the Mediterranean region but is currently cultivated in other parts of the world. Peppermint oil has been used for medicinal purposes since ancient Egyptian times.
Peppermint oil is a natural stimulant that can increase your ability to concentrate during times of mental fatigue or stress. Inhaling the aroma of peppermint oil can help alleviate jet lag and boost your energy levels. According to Janice Cox in her book "Natural Beauty at Home," peppermint oil can give you extra energy in the morning. You can make an energizing body rinse for use in the shower by adding two to three drops of peppermint oil and the juice of one lemon to two cups of sparkling mineral water or seltzer. Apply this mixture to your body with a sponge for a feeling of energy and invigoration when you take a shower in the morning. Rinse off and pat your skin dry.
