Peppermint - it's more than just a holiday treat.

Posted on December 12, 2011 at 11:47 AM
During this holiday season, candy canes and peppermints abound!  More than just a holiday decoration or tradition, however, peppermint has many wonderful natural healing properties.   
Peppermint can help with migraines, boost memory and concentration, relieve inflammation, and aid in digestion.   Personally, I use peppermint very often in my practice for keeping the sinuses open, uplifting the mood, and taming headaches.
"Whether in the form of essential oil, fresh mint leaves, or brewed tea, the refreshing scent of peppermint may be just what you need to perk up your mind."           
The antispasmodic properties of peppermint have also been confirmed in clinical trials.
Peppermint is one of the most effective oils of the digestive system.  The German Commission E Monographs recommends peppermint oil for obstructions of the bile ducts, gall bladder inflammations and severe liver damage.
Jean Valnet, MD studied peppermint's supportive effect on the liver and respiratory systems.  Peppermint helps the circulation as well.  More uses for this oil include the treatment of indigestion, flu, catarrh, headaches, toothache, and rheumatism. 
For a refreshing and easy to make hand soap for home, try this recipe:
Be happy and healthy with peppermint this holiday season!
