Nasal Congestion

Aches and Pain
Rub peppermint oil on your temples to help with headaches. Minimize neck and shoulder pain by applying a small amount of peppermint oil to your neck and shoulders. Try using peppermint oil for pain in the knees, elbows, or other joints too!

Use a small amount of peppermint oil and apply to the gumline of the tooth that is bothering you, this will help relieve pain and freshen your breath. Yum!

Stomach Ache, Bloating, or Nausea
Crushed peppermint leaves or one drop of peppermint oil added to a glass of water may help relieve a stomach ache, bloat, or nausea. Try also warm peppermint tea to settle an upset stomach. Use mint in meals as you would other herbs. Crushed or chopped mint leaves make a healthy addition to smoothies or salads.

Bug Bites
Peppermint oil is an effective alternative to bug repellants with harsh chemicals and strong odor. Use a mixture of 5-10 drops peppermint oil with water in a spray bottle. Spray clothing and exposed skin before heading outdoors. Peppermint oil may also be used to soothe any area with bug bites as well.

Peppermint oil is easy to find, and can be picked up at many healthy food stores. Peppermint plants may even be grown at home. Before using peppermint oil broadly, apply a small amount of the oil to skin before applying over larger areas, as some may be allergic or sensitive.
