Peppermint

Mentha x piperita

Description

Peppermint in a footbath or a foot massage cream is one of the best things for tired, achy feet. It is stimulating and tingly. It has the advantage of being antifungal, anti-inflammatory, stimulating to the circulatory system, and analgesic. What more could you want for tired feet? A strong cup of the Peppermint herb tea is a great remedy for an upset stomach. The essential oil can also be used to aid digestion: you can add 2 drops to an oz. of carrier and rub it on your belly for a similar effect. Try it in a bathroom spray. It leaves the room smelling fresh. It is great to diffuse in very small amounts during the day, bringing a stimulating aroma into any room. Great in cool compresses for nausea, headaches and travel sickness. Excellent in reducing acute, hot pain.

Safety + Shelf Life

May cause skin or mucous membrane  irritation. From experience, we recommend using a maximum of 1-2% dilution for topical use. Robert Tisserand officially recommends a maximum of 5%. May antidote homeopathic remedies. Avoid using with children under five years—can be neurotoxic when applied near the face. Contraindicated in case of cardiac fibrillation and for G6PD deficiency. There is a perception that menthol-rich oils can potentially affect blood clotting, but according to Robert Tisserand, it is not sufficient to be cautioned against anticoagulant medication. 

The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.
