The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in the doTERRA Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally. Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among doTERRA essential oils.

Peppermint will replace your afternoon coffee AND ease your tension. Basically, it’s mama’s best friend. Here are some of the many other ways you can use peppermint:

  • Rub onto temples to ease a headache
  • Add 1 drop to a large glass of water to freshen breathe
  • Rub clockwise onto your belly to ease an upset, bloated or sluggish tummy
  • Roll down sides of the nose and across forehead to clear sinuses and ease sinus tension
  • Make a cooling spray by combining with clean water for sunburnt skin
  • Add to any chocolate, chocolate cake or slice recipe for a choc-mint taste explosion
  • Add 1 drop to your morning coffee for a delish mint twist that will motivate you for the day ahead
  • Diffuse at your desk to support increased concentration and motivation
  • Apply behind your ears and onto pulse points before a workout for some extra pep
  • Add 1-2 drops to a veggie capsule to aid upset digestion
  • Place 1 drop in the palm of your hand, rub together and cup over nose while exhaling deeply for an afternoon pickup instead of that extra cup of coffee
