Peppermint's aroma is strongly piercing, refreshing, minty and very herbaceous. Among its properties are cooling, analgesic, antispasmodic, anesthetic, decongestant, emmenagogue, expectorant, febrifuge, insecticide and stimulant. It has a dual action: cooling when hot and warming when cold, but should be kept away from eyes, as it can irritate skin and mucous membranes. A remedy for colds, it halts mucous and fevers and encourages perspiration. Its cooling and pain relieving action eases headaches, migraines and toothaches. Used for the relief of muscle pain, lumbago, bruises, joint pain and insect bites.
For external use, aromatherapy only.
