10 Unexpected Uses for Peppermint Oil
  1. Hit that afternoon slump with some peppermint oil! If you’re having trouble focusing, sniff peppermint oil straight from the bottle or use it (or a minty blend) in the diffuser to snap back to attention. This is an especially great option in the office or classroom.

  3. Diluted peppermint oil can be dabbed directly onto bites or hives to relieve itching.
  4. Peppermint oil is wonderful in a cold compress on hemorrhoids.
  5. Peppermint oil can curb your appetite! Inhale or sniff 5-10 times a day to trigger a sense of fullness.
  6. It’s the best for cooling off! Put 3-4 drops in a spray bottle and fill with water. Spray the back of your neck whenever you feel you can’t take the heat.
  7. Inhale, diffuse or use in a cold compress on the forehead to remedy headaches.
  8. Keep peppermint oil in the car — it’s helpful to stay alert while driving. Place a drop on a napkin and tuck into a vent to disperse.
