Peppermint essential oil for helping weightloss

By 6:23 PM , , ,


Peppermint oil is currently used in numerous capacities: food flavoring, dental products, cosmetics and cold and flu medications. Its next use could be as a weight loss tool, as peppermint oil has numerous benefits related to weight loss. Consult with your physician and a certified aromatherapist to use peppermint oil to lose weight.

Components
Essential oils are extracts taken from plants for their healing benefits. Peppermint essential oil comes from the Mentha piperita plant. Peppermint's main component is menthol, although it is made up of many other components including limonene and acetate. Peppermint originates in Europe and its use was first recorded in the 17th century.

Benefits
Peppermint oil facilitates weight loss in a number of ways. A 2007 study by Alex Reed and colleagues at Wheeling Jesuit University found that smelling peppermint greatly reduced study participants' hunger and intake of fat, calories and sugar. As digestive problems can cause or exacerbate weight problems, peppermint oil can combat this factor. Peppermint is commonly used for nausea, stomachaches, diarrhea and a plethora of other digestive issues. Peppermint is also a stimulating oil, which might give you the pick-up you need to get off the couch and workout. It revs up your metabolism to help you break down energy better and it promotes endurance and strength.


Application
Various methods exist to use the healing benefits of peppermint oil. Add one drop of peppermint oil and a small amount of honey to one cup of water to drink for digestive problems. Massage your navel with a mixture of a few drops of peppermint oil and one tbsp of a carrier oil, such as grape seed oil. Diffuse the scent into the air with a diffuser or add one drop of peppermint to your bath.

Warning
Peppermint oil can be ingested, and is considered "possibly safe" in this form by MedlinePlus. However, this oil has been associated with side effects such as allergic reactions and heartburn. Do not take enteric-coated peppermint oil if you have diarrhea or achlorhydria. Peppermint oil can also have interactions with certain medications, so talk to your doctor and a certified aromatherapist before using peppermint oil. Always dilute peppermint oil.
