Discover Peppermint Oil
It may have started as the stuff of Greek mythology, but peppermint oil is the real deal. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans relied on it to tame an upset tummy. Today it’s also used to soothe minds and muscles, headaches and hot feet, breathing issues and bug bites. Peppermint oil’s health and medicinal uses have been validated in scientific trials, and its fresh scent and bevy of benefits have also made it the darling of DIY’ers who create an impressive array of beauty and household concoctions with it.
Peppermint oil has a long history—as far back as ancient Greece—of soothing digestive issues, particularly those affecting the lower intestinal tract. Research has shown that peppermint oil helps the body move food out of the stomach. In addition, inhaling peppermint oil can help curb appetite.*
Studies have shown that peppermint oil application offers natural relief. Indeed, menthol (the main ingredient in peppermint), creates a cooling sensation when applied to the skin which can benefit athletic injuries, joints, overuse or muscle aches. In addition, topical application of peppermint oil has been shown to be beneficial for symptoms of some types of headaches.*
The prevalence of menthol (the main active ingredient in peppermint oil) in so many commercially-available cold and cough remedies is no coincidence.* To relieve nasal congestion, keep the respiratory tract clear and promote easier breathing, massage 2-3 drops of Viva Naturals Peppermint Oil (along with your favorite Viva carrier oil) onto your chest or drop into a humidifier.
A whiff of peppermint can increase energy and mental clarity. In fact, studies have shown that students that inhaled peppermint do 25% better on exams. Diffuse peppermint oil in the room or apply to the back of your neck and shoulders to improve concentration, keep energy levels up, beat that afternoon lull or soldier through a tough workout.*

Ways to Enjoy
Start with 1 cup of granulated sugar in a mixing bowl. Slowly stir in enough Viva Naturals Jojoba Oil to get a slightly wet and grainy consistency. Mix in a few drops of Viva Naturals Peppermint Oil and combine well. Transfer to a lidded jar or container.
This cool and refreshing toner can be applied with a cotton ball or mister after your morning and evening cleansing, as well as throughout the day. Combine ¾ cup of filtered water and ¼ cup of Viva Naturals Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass bottle. Add 20 drops of Viva Naturals Peppermint Essential Oil. Test on skin and add more oil, as desired. Store in fridge.
Peppermint oil is an effective insect repellent when applied topically. In fact, it’s been shown to protect 84.5%-100% against three species of mosquitoes—without the worry of chemical-based bug sprays. When it’s too late to prevent the bug bites, dabbing on peppermint oil (with lavender or a carrier oil) can help take the itch away with less mess than toothpaste.
Peppermint oil’s fresh scent, along with its pest-repelling and germ-delaying properties make it a versatile ingredient for DIY household products from non-toxic bathroom scrubs to all-purpose cleansers. Try adding a few drops to the bottom of your kitchen trash can to keep bad odors at bay. It also mixes well with other essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus, lemon and rosemary, so you can create custom blends.
