Beneficial properties of Peppermint

Mentha x piperita

An aromatic plant with several and precious properties


Peppermint acts on the digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, nervous system and on the skin.
Just to name a few:

  • The aromatic effect: purifying and stimulating for the conscious, it can help memory and mind performance.
  • In respiratory disorders: the balsamic and decongestant action of Mint thins secretions, calms coughs and helps to naturally lower body temperature.
  • To relieve digestive difficulties, freshen the breath and relieve colic, gas, headaches.

In case of high blood pressure or during pregnancy it is recommended to use Mint with caution.

Repeated use may possibly cause contact sensitization.


Plants are our great allies, but they can interact with drugs, not suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding or for our personal sensibilities.

It is therefore always advisable to ask the suggestion of a professional.

Essential Oils, in the majority of cases, must be used diluted in carrier oils or with other vegetal substances.

As it treats of essences, they can also be irritating, especially for particularly sensitive people.
