We all have little (and big) ailments that get in the way of daily life and hinder our ability to enjoy it. Some of the more common complaints are body pain, fatigue, and low spirits. We’ve all been there, and we all know someone who’s been there.

What’s beautiful is that you don’t have to go at it alone and you can find relief with natural remedies. One remedy, in particular, is mint combined with eucalyptus. Both are powerful. So why not combine them?

Mint can cure the following ailments

Nausea & Headache: Again, the strong and refreshing aroma of mint is a quick and effective remedy for nausea. Even just the smell of mint oil can alleviate your stomach issues. In fact, many people keep menthol oil or mint-flavored products with them at all times to avoid nausea. Balms with a mint base and basic mint oil, when rubbed on the forehead and nose, give quick relief in case of a headache. Mint is a naturally soothing substance which makes it perfect for fighting inflammation and the temperature rise often associated with headaches and migraines.

Respiratory Disorders, Coughs, and Asthma: Mint is very effective in clearing up congestion of the nose, throat, bronchi, and lungs, which gives relief for respiratory disorders that often result from asthma and the common cold. As mint cools and soothes, it relieves the irritation which causes chronic coughing. This is the main reason why so many balms are based on mint. For asthma benefits, regular use of mint is very beneficial as it is a good relaxant and relieves congestion. Unlike the inhalers that are based on aerosols, those with mint as the fundamental component tend to be more effective and eco-friendly as well.

Depression and Fatigue: Mint is a natural stimulant, and the smell alone can be enough to charge your batteries and get your brain functioning at a high level again. If you are feeling sluggish, anxious, depressed, or simply exhausted, mint and its derivative essential oils can help. It can be ingested, applied topically in a salve form, or inhaled as a vapor, and all of those techniques can give you a much-needed boost. A popular way to get good results easily is to put a few drops of mint essential oil or menthol oil on your pillow at night and let it work on your body and mind while you sleep.

There are so many ailments you don’t have to face if you use the power of mint. And if you want added benefits, use our Mint-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist for an even more powerful remedy.
