Peppermint, part of the mint family, is actually a naturally occurring hybrid cross between watermint and spearmint. Peppermint Essential Oil has been used for thousands of years for its digestive and concentrative benefits. The main chemical component of peppermint is menthol, a powerful therapeutic compound. Menthol in Peppermint Essential Oil provides a calming and numbing effect, as menthol is commonly used to help alleviate headaches, anxiousness, digestion aid, and skin irritation.

Specific Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil as follows:

Natural pain relief... Menthol, the main compound found in peppermint, has a powerful analgesic effect and helps relieve various kinds of pain, including muscle cramps, pained joints, and headaches. 
Calming anxiety... Peppermint essential oil has a long-standing use in aromatherapy for its emotionally uplifting qualities. It helps relieve anxiety and negativity and replaces them with positive, stable emotions. 
Opening up airways... Peppermint essential oil is commonly used in aromatherapy to open up congested or constricted breathing passageways. It is also valued as a great help with allergies or cases of stuffed up sinuses. 

NOTE: Peppermint Essential Oil should not be used with young children, because it can slow their breathing down dangerously.
