User Guide / Precautions
Peppermint essential oil is extremely high in the chemical component of menthol; because of this fact, it should be taken with great care. Peppermint essential oil is not suitable for pregnant and lactating women, infants and young children.
It should not be used in cases of epilepsy or heart disease either. Used in the evening, Peppermint essential oil may cause wakefulness. High doses might cause allergic reactions.
In 2004, I went to the South of France for Aromatherapy training. Dr Daniel, a world famous aromatherapy specialist told me that the French have used aromatherapy essential oils for over 1,500 years to help treat diseases and health problems. Doctors would even prescribe essential oils to patients where it was claimed back by medicare.
But unfortunately today the big drug companies have encouraged doctors to stop this practice so they don’t lose profits. Dr Daniel also advised that peppermint oil can be ingested (taken orally) if you know how to use it properly. In our training he used a few drops of peppermint essential oil on a cut piece of apple which had a very refreshing taste.
We were also asked to run peppermint oil on our feet which helped to increase the circulation in our bodies. It is also good for enhancing the immune system. Next time you have a flu try rubbing some peppermint oil (mixed with some carrier oil) on your feet to see how much better you feel.
Another tip you be to inhale peppermint oil while you drive to keep you alert and awake or you can burn peppermint oil in your office to help increase energy and aid concentration.
