THE BENEFITS OF PEPPERMINT OIL

Peppermint is a joyful, refreshing flavor often associated with the holidays. Peppermint is also good for you. Studies show that peppermint oil has antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal, antioxidant, analgesic, radioprotective, and antiedema properties. Peppermint oil is often used in aromatherapy and essential oils to support health and has been shown to relieve anxiety, pain, nausea and improve memory and raise alertness.

Common uses include:

• Relief from stomach problems such as indigestion and nausea
• Respiratory benefits – as an expectorant, decongestant; eases symptoms of asthma
• Pain relief
• Hair, skin and dental health
Comfort for stress and nervous system problems
• Insect repellant

A little goes a long way. Peppermint oil is safe in low amounts, but can trigger side effects in people with sensitivities. This holiday season Elements Massage is offering Peppermint Aromatherapy Massage. If you’re ready for a refreshing break, treat yourself to a little peppermint.
