Unlike many other herbs and Essential Oils, numerous health benefits of Peppermint leaves and Peppermint Essential Oil have been studied and proven by the scientific community.

Peppermint Essential Oil is a mental as well as a physical stimulant and encourages study without the development of mental fatigue. It is helpful when studying or doing book work to diffuse into the room to help stay alert.

Peppermint contains nine expectorant compounds, they help move mucus up and out of the lungs. Its main constituent, menthol, thins mucus, making the expectoration easier. Peppermint also contains antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial compounds making it effective with gingivitis, colds and flu, and respiratory concerns.

When inhaled (in steam) it checks catarrh temporarily, and will provide relief from head colds and bronchitis: its antispasmodic action combines well with this to make it a most useful inhalation in asthma. [Julia Lawless, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils (Rockport, MA: Element books, 1995), 169.]
