Peppermint can help relief nasal congestion and sinusitis. It can also help relief headache symptoms. 

How does it work? Mentioned in our previous post, peppermint oil contains menthol. Menthol has anesthetic properties and counterirritant qualities. Peppermint oil can be found in most natural chest rubs to help reduce chest and nasal congestion. With its anesthetic property peppermint oil can also help relieve symptoms of a headache, such as sensitivity to noise and light.

Peppermint oil leaves a soothing and cooling sensation after application. A small amount can go a long way, so be careful when applying peppermint oil as it maybe causes skin irritation for some.
