Once again, Young Living Essential Oils pulled through for me. I can tell you this will certainly be a positive review, and I’ll list some ways you can use Peppermint in your household, and give you my complete Peppermint Oil review.

When you’re pregnant, at least for myself, I prefer to use either nothing and deal with it, or if I really need something for an ailment, I would rather it be a natural option for the protection of baby and me. Since Charlotte has become bigger in size, now that I am at 34 weeks, 3 days, she is pushing on organs in ways I didn’t think were possible! Within the last couple of days I noticed my breathing acting funny. I am breathing, but it’s almost like I long for more air, and feels like a bit of wheezing certain ways I move. Since this is my first baby, I {of course} called my doctor, and sure enough, this is all normal… {Sigh of relief…}

My doctor told me I could take some Benadryl in the evening to aid with sleeping and relieve some of that feeling, but I wanted to try something natural first. I know Peppermint oil has menthol like properties which aid in opening those airways, relief of the muscles, and boosting your mood & energy. I grabbed my diffuser, added about 2-3 drops and turned that baby on. I. Kid. You. Not, folks. Within 5-10 minutes I could feel my breathing improve! Danny even likes the smells of it, he said, “Smells like a candy cane factory in here!”

So, what else can you use Peppermint oil for?

Always check with your healthcare provider before applying or ingesting oils. I am not a doctor or in any medical profession to diagnose or treat your condition.


  • Nausea? Diffuse, inhale, or apply to abdomen.
  • Headache or other muscle pain? Apply to forehead temples, sore muscles, or your vita flex points
  • Focusing? Diffuse 2-3 drops, or place a drop on your tongue
  • Fever? Apply to forehead, down the spine, and on the bottoms of your feet. {Recommended to dilute with a carrier oil, like coconut oil}
  • Energy or Mood Booster? Inhale and apply 1-2 drops to your wrists
  • Asthma or Wheezing? Diffuse 2-3 drops
  • Allergies? Diffuse 2-3 drops of each {Peppermint, Lemon & Lavender} — I must add, this is one of my favorite combos!
  • Itching? Combine 1-2 drops of each {Peppermint & Lavender} with coconut oil. Apply to itch to relieve.

As you can see, there is a laundry list of ways you can use Peppermint oil. These alone are ways I have used it for me personally, and found that each have worked. There are several ways this oil can be put to use, along with the entire Premium Starter Kit of Young Living. I swear by these oils to anyone I speak to because of their 100% therapeutic grade.
