Frequently Asked Questions
What is Peppermint essential oil used for?
  • Few essential oils are quite as effective as Peppermint in aiding the digestive system such as quelling nausea, relieving Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and alleviating indigestion. Using it topically or diffused in a room can help to bring relief to stomach issues. It's also been shown to sharpen the senses, aiding memory and giving you more energy and potentially relieving cognitive disabilities. Its proclivity to ease congestion and open the breath when feeling sick can come as a great relief during cold and flu season. Peppermint is also a known analgesic and antispasmodic and great in massage oil blend for muscle pain and aches. One recent study has even revealed that Peppermint could be used as a hair growth aid when compared to the hair growth product ingredient minoxidil.
Is Peppermint essential oil edible?
  • Consider how many leaves of the peppermint plant it takes to make a small bottle of essential oil. Here at Edens Garden, we want you to remember that pure, undiluted essential oils are incredibly concentrated chemical substances that need to be diluted for safety reasons and we want you to be able to make an educated decision based on facts. Upon ingestion, essential oils including Peppermint essential oil come into contact with mucous membranes that line the mouth, esophagus and stomach. Because essential oils are made up of fat binding constituents, they attach to our mucus lined organs which can lead to irritation and damage. Ingesting essential oils can cause users to develop acid reflux, an aching stomach, diarrhea, sore throat, rashes, etc. We cannot express to you enough that if you are using essential oils internally, you should consult an experienced and trained aromatherapist.
Is Peppermint essential oil safe during pregnancy?
  • Most of what we know about essential oils and pregnancy comes from an educated understanding. With that being said, during your first trimester or if you are having a difficult pregnancy or are considered high risk, we do not recommend using essential oils at all. We do, however, recommend, after the first trimester, to use essential oils minimally at a 1% dilution if used topically so that you don't overwhelm your system. Always remember that less is more and that you only need a few drops to reap the relaxing benefits of essential oil and to protect your baby. Pregnant women should avoid solvent extracted oils (or absolutes). As far as diffusing, it is recommended that you do not diffuse for long periods of time and use only in a well-ventilated room. For example, try opening a window while your diffuser is running. With that being said, yes you can use Peppermint during the second and third trimesters but at very low doses and never undiluted.
How to use Peppermint essential oil for sore throat?
  • Peppermint is an all-around great essential oil to have in your first-aid kit. If applied topically in a carrier oil, its high menthol content which is used in many sore throat remedies gives Peppermint its cooling effect. Peppermint has antimicrobial properties that can potentially help treat a sore throat but may work better in tandem with other antiviral essential oils.
Is Peppermint essential oil bad for dogs?
  • Dogs have a unique physiology, and cannot metabolize most essential oils like humans can and it’s why we must be careful with how we use essential oils around dogs. When choosing which oils to use with your pup, keep the following in mind: your dog’s age, size, medical history, allergies, and needs. With all this in mind, we do not recommend using Peppermint essential oil around dogs.
