Peppermint tea and health - this cure-all herbal tea can help to ease a headache, relieve a stuffy nose, soothe achy (or smelly) feet, and much more!

Peppermint tea is one of a number of teas that provide impressive aromatherapeutic and topical benefits, as well.

Aromatherapeutic benefits of peppermint tea

If you are feeling mentally fatigued or need to be especially alert for an important meeting or exam, brew some peppermint tea and breathe in its lovely fragrance before sipping - simply inhaling the aroma of this beneficial herbal tisane will help you feel more alert, focused, and energized immediately!

If a head cold or allergies have left you with a stuffy nose or congested chest or sinuses, peppermint tea (with its wonderful menthol) can provide relief from the pain and discomfort. 

Deeply inhaling peppermint tea's aroma can clear clogged nasal passages and a congested chest (and sipping this herbal tea is so comforting when you're feeling poorly, as well!).

Peppermint Tea and Health

If inhaling the steam while sipping your cup of soothing peppermint tea isn't enough to relieve your congestion, try a therapeutic peppermint tea steam for additional relief.

Topical use of peppermint tea

 Peppermint tea isn't just an enjoyable beverage... this herbal tea has impressive topical benefits, as well!

Apply peppermint tea topically to ease the itch and pain of skin irritations, such as itchiness, hives, rashes, or topical allergic reactions (like poison ivy). Peppermint tea, with its cooling sensation, can also relieve the discomfort of bee stings, insect bites, and burns (sunburns and razor burns, for example).

Peppermint tea, when applied topically, may help prevent nipple pain and damage for breastfeeding moms. (Just remember to wash thoroughly before the next feeding, so your baby isn't exposed to the tea. Peppermint tea is considered to be too strong for infants and small children.)

And, a cool compress of peppermint tea (or a warm, moist peppermint teabag) applied to an aching forehead or temples (wherever the pain is most intense) can ease a throbbing headache or migraine. Aches and pains, such as sprains, menstrual cramps, bruises, muscle cramps, even rheumatic and arthritic pains, can also be alleviated by a peppermint tea compress or peppermint teabags.

A soft cloth dampened with warm (not hot) peppermint tea placed on baby's belly may help to relieve his or her tummy cramps (be very sure to keep the cloth away from baby's face).

Peppermint Tea Footbath

A refreshing peppermint tea footbath is a sure way to comfort and revive tired, aching feet after a long, hard day! Adding some peppermint tea to your bath is an effective remedy for foot or body odor, as well.
