Peppermint (Mentha piperita) may be well-known for its refreshing minty flavor and scent, but it is also an invaluable botanical recognized for supporting various areas throughout the body including: digestive systems, respiratory systems and even the brain's satiety center. Although it is most popular during the winter season, peppermint’s therapeutic benefits make it useful all year around.
Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil is four times as strong as peppermint extract.1 While peppermint extract is diluted with alcohol, this oil is made solely the peppermint botanical. In fact, to make one 0.5 oz (15 ml) bottle of pure Peppermint Essential Oil it takes one pound or approximately 256 leaves of peppermint.2
There is research that indicates that Peppermint scent alone could be an effective appetite suppressant,3 in a 2007 study by Wheeling Jesuit University showed that people exposed to the scent of peppermint ate significantly less than those that didn’t. According to a study conducted by Dr. Joel S. Warm, Dr. William N. Dember, and Dr. Raja Parasuraman of the University of Cincinnati, peppermint is a natural fragrance that could enhance concentration in detailed-oriented tasks.4 Other doctors, such as Dr. Jean Valnet MD, have examined peppermint's supportive impact on the liver and respiratory systems. Furthermore, according to the National Institute of Health peppermint not only supports those systems but it could also support many others.5
Add a drop into your tea or directly to your tongue, in order to support the digestive system and help boost your focus.
Inhale directly or use a diffuser to help reduce your sense of hunger to help fight those cravings for those mid-afternoon and midnight snacks. The fragrance also promotes alertness.
