Peppermint Essential Oil + DMSO Uses and Benefits

Need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up? Maybe your joint pain is flaring up again.
From pain to boating, from inflammation to a mid-day slump...

Peppermint essential oil has got you covered. That might seem like quite the range of things it can do and, well, it is!


Peppermint is a very versatile essential oil. But why is that?

The main contributor to Peppermint essential oil being so beneficial is menthol. Menthol contributes to Peppermint oil’s energizing characteristics as well as it’s pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, decongestant, and digestion-aiding characteristics.

“Peppermint oil is studied and documented for its antiinflammatory, analgesic, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, digestive, carminative, fungicidal effects, nervine stimulant, vasoconstrictor, decongestant & stomachic properties.”

Breathing in the crisp smell of Peppermint oil is great for helping improve concentration and alertness, giving you a boost in energy and mood, and is a natural insecticide.

People are also known to use Peppermint essential oils for things like:

  • Stomach aches
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Itchy skin
  • Achy joints and Arthritis pain
  • Clarity and mental focus
  • Stress relief
  • Nausea and gas relief
  • Pain relief
  • Sinus and respiratory infections
  • Eliminating odors
  • A natural energy boost
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Menstrual Pain
  • and more!

“Specifically for RA peppermint oils have natural analgesic, anesthetic and anti-inflammatory properties which
help alleviate joint pain and stiffness.”
(In regards to Peppermint essential oil and its effects on Arthritis.)


Herbal Mana uses Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Peppermint Essential Oils with a higher menthol content than your average topical pain relief products, bringing you faster, more effective pain relief.

On top of all the benefits of menthol, DMSO brings it’s own pain-relieving and inflammation-fighting properties to the table. DMSO also helps the skin absorb more Peppermint than the body would be able to with just the essential oil alone.
