There is much more to Peppermint than just the association of the smell of it with the candy. Used for centuries to help with digestive, respiration and nervous system problems, it is still used today as it has a variety of health benefits. Because it contains Menthol, it produces an immediate, pronounced sensation of coolness when applied to the skin. Peppermint promotes healthy respiratory function and allows for clearer breathing. Using Peppermint will help an upset stomach feel better and it is well known as being great for oral health as it is used in many toothpastes and chewing gum. Once you diffuse Peppermint, you will notice an uplifting and rejuvenating feeling. When feeling stressed, Peppermint will help you feel happier and awakened.
