PEPPERMINT (10ml) - Mentha Piperita-
Peppermint is best known as a remedy for digestive problems. It was used as such by the Romans and possibly the ancient Egyptians. Refreshing and stimulating, peppermint tones and settles the digestive system. It relieves indigestion, flatulence, spasms, diarrhea, nausea, stomach cramps and travel sickness. It also helps to tone the liver, intestines, and the nervous system.
It is a valuable expectorant in the treatment of bronchitis, colds, and flu, and it can reduce fevers by inducing sweating and cooling the body.
It is a painkiller, beneficial for toothache, headaches, and some migraines. It relieves itching, is a useful antiseptic for acne and congested skin, and is an emergency remedy for shock. Muscle and mental fatigue are both relieved by peppermint.
NOTE: Do not use during pregnancy. May irritate the skin of sensitive people. Do not use while taking homeopathic remedies. Do not use for long periods at a time.
The word aromatherapy means “treatment using scents”. It refers to a particular branch of herbal medicine that uses concentrated plant oils called essential oils to improve physical and emotional health, and to restore balance to the whole person. Unlike the herbs used in herbal medicine, essential oils are not taken internally, but are inhaled or applied to the skin. Each oil has its own natural fragrance, and a gentle healing action that makes aromatherapy one of the most pleasant and popular of all the available complementary therapies.
Essential oils are extracted from aromatic essences of certain plants, trees, fruit, flowers, herbs, and spices. Over 150 essential oils have been extracted, each one with its own scent and unique healing properties. The oils and their actions are extremely complex.
All the oils are antiseptic, but each one also has individual properties, for example, they may be analgesic, fungicidal, diuretic, or expectorant. The collective components of each oil also work together to give the oil a dominant characteristic. It can be relaxing, as in the case of chamomile, refreshing, or stimulating.
