Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil

Spread the love

The more I get into these essential oils and learning about doTERRA products the more I am amazed at the benefits of using doTERRA. I’ve watched countless videos and seen testimony after testimony on the value of using these products. I am sold for life! doTERRA products are made with pure ingredients which makes them better to use than the typical over-the-counter essential oils that can be purchased for a cheaper price and can contain chemicals that can be harmful to pets and humans.

As I mentioned in a prior post, I do not have medical insurance. So I have been on a journey to find things that could help me with my health and medical needs while I’m in transition from being non-covered to covered. As my medications run their course and my supply becomes low, I find myself looking for other alternatives. I am really starting to feel like I’ve hit the jackpot with this. I can’t wait to tryout every single recipe there is to see how it helps either myself or my family and friends.

The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in the doTERRA Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally.* Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among doTERRA essential oils.
