What Makes Peppermint so Good?

Everyone loves peppermint. It’s the stuff that makes candy canes so delicious, the stuff that makes you smile, relax, or calm down. Aromatherapy with peppermint can be used to create a happier, less stressed, beautiful.. you.

In Aromatherapy

Peppermint is used in aromatherapy to relieve stress, relax muscles, and increase brain functions. It has a cooling effect, which will relieve stress from a long day’s work. It is used in muscle relaxants to cool and create a lasting mellow feeling. Peppermint Oil can be used in salons for head massages. Its effects can be great on practically everyone who is not allergic to it.

In Oil Form

Peppermint Oil used for head massages can stimulate the brain. This increases blood flow, and can also increase memory. The stimulation of the brain makes a person more alert, and gives an energy boost. It also can remove dandruff, lice, and pimples from the body. Peppermint Oil also boosts your immune system! The effects are crazy good for anyone!

Used for Pain, Sickness, or in Hospitals

Peppermint is used in hospitals where pregnant women experience the urge to vomit, or feel nauseous. It also is great for curing the common cold, a fever, or even headaches. Peppermint can be used to limit pain and all kinds of illnesses. It can be used to nourish dull skin, and improve oily skin. It can be used to help burns, inflammation, cramps, or subdue itchiness. It’s also great for bowel movement. Everyone wants a happy bowel!

Mood Effects

Peppermint is also great for someone’s mood. The calming effects leave a person in a much more relaxed state of mind. Whereas the elevation in mood can occur also, targeting sadness, anxiety or depression. It enhances happiness by eliminating the sadness in a mood. It also creates a minor loss of appetite, so people could use it for that reason.

The Miracles, Oh the Miracles!

All the benefits of Peppermint can be explained in one thought: It is a miracle plant. Peppermint and Peppermint Oil are easily used to give someone a better mood, relax someone else, or make another person feel more beautiful. Not to mention how it helps pregnant mothers! It has to be one of the best non-medical and medical things a salon could possibly use on a client.

      When I have an upset stomach, which is often, everyone tells me to eat a peppermint. I tried this once and it made my stomach worse. I love the smell and taste, but as for tummy problems, never again. Nice post.
