1. Sore Muscles Relief
Peppermint oil is an effective natural painkiller, and because it also has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties, it not only can relieve pain and inflammation but can also calm the spasms that cause muscle cramps. It is especially useful when it comes to soothing back pain and muscle pain caused by flu or exercise. It can be used during massages or simply applied on the skin.
