Peppermint makes the perfect breath freshener and may also be good for dental health. Use it as a mouthwash or create a simple and natural toothpaste. It’s a great way to get your mouth clean without any hard-to-pronounce ingredients! Try a toothpaste recipe like this one found at DIY Natural.

 

3. Tummy health

Use a drop or two on your wrists or stomach to help relieve nausea or motion sickness. It is best to use a carrier oil (such as almond or olive) rather than applying the peppermint directly. You may also try adding a drop of peppermint oil to a cup of tea regularly to promote healthy digestion.

 

4. Relieve congestion

Peppermint oil is partially made up of menthol, which makes it a good choice when it comes to relieving congestion. You may add a few drops of oil to a pot of boiling water or your humidifier and inhale the steam, or use the headache relief salve recipe above on your chest.

 

5. Soften lips

Dry, chapped lips can be aided by a good peppermint lip scrub and this recipe from Lemon Peony won’t disappoint. After a scrub, keep your lips moist and minty with a balm you can make yourself as well! Try this one at Eat. Drink. Love.

 

6. Healthy hair

Encourage healthy hair by mixing a few drops of peppermint oil with a carrier oil and massaging it into your scalp. Leave your hair covered with a shower cap for 30 minutes or more a few times a month and dandruff and greasy locks may just become a thing of the past.

 

7. Relaxation

Peppermint oil in a warm bath can help to relax muscles and quiet the mind. Peppermint bath salts are one of the best ways to add these to your tub, and they would make a great gift for a friend or family member in need of a little relaxing as well.

 

8. Mental health

Peppermint oil may also help to improve mental clarity and alertness and decrease stress when inhaled. You may choose to use it on your skin or diffuse oil into the air with a diffuser. And don’t forget the obvious bonus here — your house will smell great too!

 

Peppermint Oil Safety Tips:

Always avoid contact with the eyes. Combining with olive or almond oil to dilute is beneficial in topical uses. Ingesting undiluted peppermint oil is not recommended. Always consult a doctor, particularly if you are taking any medications, as there may be interactions. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult a doctor before using any essential oil and it is recommended that peppermint oil not be used during the first months of pregnancy.

Top 8 Household Uses for Peppermint Oil

Add these uses for peppermint oil to your home maintenance checklist and give your house a natural boost. Top 8 Household Uses for Peppermint Oil via @tipsaholic #peppermint #oils #youngliving #essentialoils #peppermintoil


Top 8 Household Uses for Peppermint Oil
Peppermint isn’t just for candy canes! Peppermint oil is a popular essential oil that can be used in many places around your home to freshen, clean, and deter pests. These household uses for peppermint oil promote a more natural way of living and achieving greater health. Try a few of the simple recipes and techniques listed here to care for the inside and outside of your home.

 

1. Fresh scent

Add a few drops of peppermint oil to trash bins, disposals, and other areas of your home that may carry a “smell.” You can also try dropping a bit onto the inside of a roll of toilet paper – the scent releases every time someone takes some!

 

2. All-purpose cleaning

Add a little peppermint oil to any of your homemade household cleaners for a fresh scent or make a peppermint-specific cleaner using:

 

1 cup of water

½ cup of vinegar

½ teaspoon dish soap

3 drops peppermint oil

 

Mix the ingredients together in a spray bottle and use it on hard surfaces.

 

3. Insect and spider repellent

A simple mixture of 5 drops of peppermint oil, a squirt of dish soap, and about 3 cups of warm water may be just the right remedy for the creepy crawlies making their home around yours. Shake it together in a spray bottle and spritz in corners.

 

4. Room spray

Use this recipe from The Prairie Homestead and spray the mixture around your home when company is coming over, or just to freshen a bathroom or laundry room for your own benefit! It is also safe to use on furniture and upholstery.

 

5. Mouse control

Peppermint oil is has a strong scent that may discourage mice. Soak cotton balls with several drops of peppermint oil and distribute them around baseboards, cupboards, and other places in your home where you’ve noticed rodent activity. Replace the cotton balls every few days.

 

6. Wasp spray

Get rid of wasp nests and keep insects from rebuilding in the same area with this recipe for a handy wasp spray. Be sure spray the nest in the cooler hours when the wasps are slower and less active to give yourself the best chance of getting them all.

 

7. Cleaning mold

Add a half teaspoon of peppermint oil to a mix of a half cup of vinegar and a half cup of salt in a spray bottle and get to work on mold lurking in bathroom and basement corners. Spray and allow it to sit for several minutes before wiping it clean.

 

8. Plant health

Spray your plants with a mix of water and several drops of peppermint oil a few times a week. Diluted oil won’t hurt the plant and the spray will discourage pests and get rid of plant-eating aphids.
