Historically, essential oil of peppermint has been used to reduce pain caused by muscle tension and inflammation such as headaches, joint pain, muscle soreness, and swollen lymph glands. Peppermint oil is also well-known for its anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic qualities and has been widely used throughout history to treat bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections, both internally and externally. Modern science now recognizes these qualities to be due to the high concentration of menthol (around 40% of the total composition) found in the essential oil. Peppermint oil has also long been revered for its ability to ease the symptoms of cold, flu , and other respiratory illnesses – also due to the oil’s high concentration of menthol.
