Peppermint may be the most versatile essential oil in the world along with lavender. It gives a cooling sensation and has a calming effect on the body, which can relieve sore muscles when used topically. It also has antimicrobial properties so it can help freshen bad breath and soothe digestive issues.
It is also a good tonic for those who have a low appetite and helps in treating motion sickness, nausea, and upset stomachs.
