Peppermint Essential Oil + DMSO Uses and Benefits
The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint plants. Indigenous to Europe and the Middle East, Peppermint can be now found in a variety of different areas across the world, growing best by streams or other locations with lots of rainfall.
The main chemical component in Peppermint essential oil is menthol. Menthol contributes to Peppermint oil’s energizing characteristics in addition to relieving aches and pains.
When applied topically, Peppermint essential oil creates a cooling sensation that soothes sore muscles and has a calming effect on the body.
Menthol is also known to soothe the smooth muscle that lines the colon, making menthol the main contributor to Peppermint’s ability to promote digestive health.
Peppermint oil can also help improve concentration and alertness, give you a boost in energy, and is a natural insecticide.
