Peppermint is perhaps one of the best essential oils to treat pain. Particularly in rheumatic pains and in the patterns due to beatings and bruises, but also migraines and to relieve the itching due to the bites of mosquitoes or other insects.
Used internally, peppermint essential oil is considered one of the best essential oils for those with digestive problems (dyspepsia, meteorism, flatulence, colitis and almost all disorders related to the digestive system) and is an excellent anti-nausea and anti-vomit.
It has a tonic and "refreshing" action for the mind, as it clears the thoughts, promotes concentration and improves memory. For this reason, mint essential oil is often used with a vaporizer, to improve the performance of the students, especially if under scrutiny, or by those who do a job which needs concentration.
The mint essential oil has antiseptic, antimicrobial and antipyretic properties (lowers fever). That’s why it is very useful for purifying the room and preventing possible contagious flu and applied to the skin, promoting the lowering of fever and a natural cure of colds.
These are the main applications of mint essential oil:
The peppermint essential oil cannot be used pure on the skin, it must be diluted with a fatty substance, such as vegetable oils (olive oil, sunflower oil, almonds, etc.), or with macerated oils, or creams.
Mixed with vegetable oil (or with a cream) the recommended dilution is:
The peppermint essential oil from Erbe di Mauro is certified for food use, so it can also be ingested. However, we recommend taking it carefully because, despite being a natural product, it contains very complex and very concentrated substances, so an excessive dosage could be toxic.
In this regard, before use, we recommend that you ask for advice to a professional (doctor/herbalist /naturopath).
I also remind that essential oils should never be used pure. You can add a drop to a lump of sugar, or a teaspoon of honey, or in water, or in fruit juices. Dosages should never exceed 2-3 drops at a time.
NB: Essential oils for internal use can interfere with many drugs. In this case, always consult an expert before ingestion.
* Essential oils are not soluble in water; while bicarbonate, or alternatively fatty substances (such as vegetable oils, or milk) have indeed the purpose of making them soluble in water.
Expiry: after 5 years, if stored well in the dark, away from sources of heat.
Peppermint essential oil is contraindicated to pregnant and breastfeeding women, to children under 3, to those allergic to mint and to people suffering from epilepsy.
Applied pure on the skin it can irritate and a prolonged use can bring a widespread sense of cold, which can then lead to hypothermia.
Never use pure on the skin or on the mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a dry place, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. For internal use, do not take the peppermint essential oil together with the homeopathic treatments, because it prevents absorption.
All essential oils naturally contain potentially allergenic molecules such as cinnamaldehyde, citronellol, eugenol, citrus, coumarin, limonene, linalool, geraniol, etc. which can, therefore, trigger allergic reactions. For this reason, we recommend testing them before use, applying 1 drop dissolved in 30 ml of olive oil (or other vegetable oil) on the skin of the forearm and wait 48 hours for the possible occurrence of allergies.
