The World of Peppermint

Need to stay alert?

Try Peppermint oil! If you or someone you know has trouble staying awake during the day and would like a natural method to feel alert, Peppermint oil used topically or aromatically can help. Because of the invigorating and cooling effects that pure Peppermint oil produces when it comes in contact with skin, Peppermint is an ideal oil for staying attentive and aware. In order to create this extra boost, place 1–2 drops of Peppermint oil on your fingertips and then rub your temples. The invigorating aroma of Peppermint oil will help give you the natural sense of alertness you desire when you need it most.

We love to diffuse Wild Orange & Peppermint together during home work time. It is a great uplighting combination that also helps our kids stay more attentive. My oldest loves peppermint so much. It is his favorite oil and is his go to when he is feeling a little overwhelmed.

Here are some great diffuser blends for using Peppermint!
