Along with the aforementioned properties, peppermint essential oil can be used for digestive concerns, as a nervine stimulant, vasoconstrictor, decongestant, and astringent. It can provide relief from headaches, fever, joint and muscle pain, insomnia, and itching. Peppermint oil is also known to deter insects and other pests.
History/Fun Fact:Peppermint is indigenous to Europe. A hybrid of watermint and spearmint, peppermint has naturalized itself across the globe, spanning from the United States to Australia to India. India accounts for over 75% of the world’s production. Because it naturally contains high levels of menthol and menthone, peppermint oil is used widely in the manufacture of many products including shampoo, soap, deodorants, toothpaste, chewing gum, candy, and tea.
