One of the oldest European herbs used in medicine, mint oil is synonymous with assisting in digestive health. There’s more to this fresh minty oil, however, as its versatility ranges from headache helper to mood booster.
Mint oil can assist with colds and allergies by clearing the sinuses and alleviating congestion. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe headache pain, nausea, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). As a topical, mint oil can alleviate muscle and joint pain, reduce swelling, and relieve itchiness from bug bites and rashes.

How to Use
- Essential oils have the natural ability to heal, soothe, and stimulate. With antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties, essential oils have a wide variety of uses.
- Sniff essential oils right from the bottle for an instant pick-me-up, to relive anxiety, or to induce relaxation. Add to carrier oil, such as jojoba, and use in a soothing massage. Place a few drops in diffuser to eliminate household odors. Add to cleaning products for more antibacterial and antimicrobial power. During cold and flu season, diffuse daily to stimulate immunity. Mix with carrier oil and apply to the skin to heal wounds. Add a drop or two to your face serum and apply daily to and protect skin against the signs of aging.
- Before applying to skin, do a patch test.
- How to patch test – Wash, clean, and dry the area on your upper arm near the crook of your elbow. Apply small amount of essential oil and cover with a bandage. Leave the bandage on for 24 hours, then remove and check for irritation. If skin looks clear and there is no reaction after the allotted test time, the oil is presumably safe to use. If you feel irritation at any time during the test, remove bandage and wash area with soap and water.
