Essential Oil Series: The Power of Peppermint

JE Blog Template (46).jpg

For many, thoughts of peppermint are reserved for the holidays or as a chewing gum flavor. But peppermint is an amazing plant with powerful medicinal, therapeutic, and herbal properties.  Not just for winter or holiday use, peppermint can be enjoyed anytime of the year for a wide variety of applications.

Peppermint is just one of many popular essential oils that Jordan Essentials offers.  Our peppermint essential oil is pure, therapeutic-grade, steam-distilled oil from the menta piperita plant and has been found to have anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, invigorating, cooling, and stimulating qualities.


Top uses for JE Peppermint Essential Oil include:

  • Headache and Migraine Relief:  Combine with a carrier such as Magnesium Lotion and apply topically to the temples, above the ears, and the back of the neck.

  • Asthma and Sinusitis Relief:  Combine with a carrier such as Skin Relief Lotion and apply topically to the chest and back or bottoms of the feet.

  • Digestive Discomfort:  Peppermint is amazing at soothing the digestion.  If you have access to fresh peppermint leaves, chew on fresh leaves to support healthy digestion.  In the case of discomfort, combine JE Peppermint Essential oil with Magnesium Lotion or use Peppermint Magnesium Lotion and apply topically over the abdomen.  Peppermint has been used for centuries to soothe digestive difficulties, freshen breath, and relieve colic, gas, heartburn, and indigestion.

  • Alertness:  Inhale or diffuse JE Peppermint Essential Oil first thing in the morning to facilitate alertness and repeat as necessary throughout the day.

  • Reduce Fevers and Hot Flashes:  Peppermint contains cooling constituents that support the body naturally.  Combine JE Peppermint Essential Oil with a carrier such as Magnesium Spray and spritz the back of the neck, spine, or bottoms of the feet.

  • Allergies:  JE Peppermint Essential Oil applied to the bottom of the feet can reduce the symptoms of allergies or hives.

  • Cravings:  Inhale the aroma of peppermint to reduce the feelings of severe cravings throughout the day.
