Peppermint is stimulating, and when diffused can help uplift the spirit and enhance alertness. It can also relieve the discomfort of an upset tummy, and support healthy digestive and respiratory systems. Because of its higher menthol content, Peppermint has a cooling effect which can help when you are feeling under the weather and is also great for discomfort.
