What if I told you that peppermint has been proven to increase athletic performance? Yup, there are peer reviewed studies on this! I use peppermint every day before my work out and I have truly noticed the difference. It opens up our airways which means = more oxygen in our blood!

Peppermint is also really great for headache and tension relief, when your feeling fatigued and low on energy he will help you be alert and energised (that 3pm slump!), amazing for your respiratory system, asthma, opening up your airways if your stuffy and congested, he is cooling so great for hot days or if you have a fever, coldsore relief, amazing for period pain, tummy upsets, nausea, bloating, and indigestion - 1 drop of peppermint is equivalent to 28 cups of tea! And as always, so much more.
Emotionally, he is the oil of joy and a buoyant heart. Invigorating our mind, body and soul, he invokes feelings of optimism and alleviates feelings of pain and despair. Encouraging us to stop, and take a breath.
