Got a headache? Peppermint oil to the rescue....

Peppermint oil can help your headache and many other issues...

I never thought a little peppermint oil could be helpful but it turns out that it not only can help relieve a headache it's also great for  many other health issues. 

The botanical name of peppermint is mentha piperita. Extracted from the herb by steam distillation, the oil of peppermint is clear with a slight tinge of yellow. Its main constituent is menthol, which imparts the famous heady, minty aroma and the remarkable “cooling sensation,” when tasted or touched.
Peppermint oil contains vitamins A and C, omega-3 fatty acids, minerals, potassium, manganese, iron, magnesium, calcium, and copper. 
  • Rub it on your temples, behind your neck on your shoulders and the back of your head... 
  • Soothes the pain.  
  • Relax your muscles, tension and stress.
  • Use peppermint oil as a flavoring agent in food or add a few drops in a glass of warm water and drink it after your meal.
