How to Use Peppermint Oil for Headaches


Do you suffer from frequent headaches or migraines? Are you tired of taking painkillers that don't seem to work? If so, then you might want to try a more natural approach. Learn how to use peppermint oil to treat headaches and migraines, and stay away from those artificial over-the-counter pain relievers.



1. A great way to get the most benefits from peppermint oil is to inhale the oil directly from the bottle. This way, the scent and oil will be at their strongest - not diluted by any carrier oil - but still safe to use.

2. You can also inhale peppermint oil with steam. Simply add 5 drops of peppermint essential oil to a bowl of hot water. Place a towel on your head, hold it close to your breath and inhale the peppermint oil vapor.

Topical application

Dilute peppermint oil and apply topically to the temples, neck, shoulders, or head area to help relieve stress, improve circulation, and relax muscles. Topical application can also help relieve headaches by helping reduce stress, improve digestive function, stabilize hormones, and relieve menstrual cramps.

You can even use peppermint essential oil in roll-on form for easier and more convenient application.



Diffuse a few drops of peppermint oil to help improve your mood, reduce stress and relieve fatigue.


Inhaling, diffusing, and applying topically peppermint oil can help relieve migraine headaches and symptoms. You can also try mixing a few drops of peppermint oil with a carrier oil to make your own massage oil. You can apply this massage oil topically to your head or temple area to relieve stress and help relieve headaches. You can also apply this mixture topically to the abdominal or stomach area to relieve nausea and vomiting and help calm the stomach.
