According to the latest resources published by Loving Essential Oils, diffuser essential oil blends containing peppermint can clear the bronchia, helping to relieve congestion and coughing.
Today, peppermint is used as flavoring in toothpaste, chewing gum, candy, and more, but its medicinal use dates back to at least 1500 BC. In a 1996 German study, it was shown to be as effective as 1,000 milligrams of acetaminophen for headache relief.
According to “Benefits of Diffusing Peppermint Oil with 6 Minty Diffuser Blends,” diffusing a blend that contains peppermint essential oil can permeate a person’s home with an energizing, refreshing scent, especially beneficial during winter. Peppermint oil increases blood circulation in the head, improving mental clarity and motivation, and can be blended with many oils, including frankincense, orange, and vanilla.
This guide includes a recipe which combines peppermint with eucalyptus, lime, and tea tree oil – this blend is believed to provide relief for congested airways. This aromatherapy blend produces a pleasant scent, decongesting the airways and allowing for easier breathing.
Another diffuser blend that combines peppermint with orange and rosemary essential oils is said to be able to stimulate the brain, erasing tiredness or fogginess.
In another guide, titled “Peppermint Air Freshener – 5 Minty Essential Oil Recipes,” Jennifer Lane focuses on using peppermint oil to deodorize a home and make it fresh and inviting. The included recipes are all made with natural ingredients and can be used in a glass spray bottle.
The general recipe calls for 10-20 drops of chosen essential oils, a tablespoon of grain alcohol to act as a preservative, and enough distilled water to fill the spray bottle. Grain alcohol is optional, but alcohol-free spray should be used within a week or two.
Combinations of oils for these recipes include vanilla and peppermint; lemon, spearmint, and peppermint; pink pepper and peppermint; basil, spearmint, and peppermint; and rosemary, orange, and peppermint.
“Peppermint air freshener made with essential oils is a perfect option to freshen up any room,” writes Jennifer Lane, Certified Aromatherapist. “With the variety of scents that essential oils have, there are really endless combinations available to make your home smell wonderful.”
