This Peppermint Crème is used for opening up the nasal passages to relieve snoring, allergies, stuffy noses, congestion, migraines, headache and sinus pressure. It is a natural decongestant, stress, and pain reliever. Can be used on the chest, head, neck or under the nose for relief.
Methanol is present in Peppermint oil and acts as an expectorant, helping to open your airways, clear mucus and reduce congestion and is one of the best oils for flu, cough, sinusitis, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory conditions.

Did you know?
REMARLE PEPPERMINT CREME can help keep the nose moist while helping ward off bacteria and viruses.
The nose has a built in antibacterial defense mechanism but it must stay moist to work.
Our noses act as barriers to bacteria and viruses. We’ve always been told that healthy dogs should have a wet nose, but did you know that humans also benefit from having moist noses?
Our noses are actually built to fend off germs trying to invade our bodies. Ear, nose and throat surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Banyas has practices in Washington and McMurray and says keeping your nose moist is definitely a plus for preventing sickness.
“The nose and sinuses are lined with a mucous membrane that has within it small hairs called cilia,” Banyas explained. “These cilia beat rhythmically to sweep the sinuses clean.” Banyas said when the mucus is thin, the cilia work much more efficiently.
Recent research reveals new insight into how the nasal airway works to protect us from bacteria. A team from Massachusetts Eye and Ear developed and reported the research, publishing it in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
Mucus is one way our bodies deal with pathogens and eliminate them before we become sick.
Researchers discovered that cells secrete small fluid-filled sacs called exosomes when we inhale bacteria. Once secreted, exosomes promptly attack the bacteria and also send antimicrobial molecules to nearby areas in the nose.
Health Benefits of Peppermint:
Headaches and Migraines: Peppermint oil has been used as a natural remedy and herbal treatment for migraines and headaches, nausea. Peppermint is known to be calming and numbing and is a natural pain reliever.
Use: Apply Peppermint Oil to the forehead, neck, and temples as well as hold it up to your nose and breathe it in.
Stress: Like most other essential oils, peppermint is able to provide relief from stress, depression and mental exhaustion due to its refreshing nature. It is also effective against anxiety and restlessness. Furthermore, it stimulates mental activity, clears the mind, and increases focus on cognitive tasks. It helps with migraines and headaches.
Pain relief: Peppermint oil can be used externally in order to provide relief from pain. It is believed that the presence of calcium antagonism in peppermint oil helps remove pain from affected areas. It is also cooling in nature and is subsequently used to help reduce fever. It is frequently called a “refrigerant”, meaning that it can provide an intensely cold sensation to any affected area. In case of injury, wound, or healing process, topically apply peppermint oil to the area to reduce swelling, relieve pain, and eliminate the chances of uncomfortable inflammation.
Immune system: Peppermint oil can increase a person’s immunity to various
diseases and is commonly employed by those people with weak immune systems or
who seem to frequently suffer from illness. Peppermint oil is also known to
have powerful antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal effects, which is why it
is used in so many alternative treatments.
Blood circulation: The stimulating effects of peppermint oil have been shown to increase blood circulation. Studies have shown that as soon as the essential oil vapor touches the end of the olfactory nerve endings, there is an almost instant increase in pulse rate and blood circulation. The stimulating effect of increased blood circulation helps to oxygenate the body’s organs and increase metabolism, as well as oxygenate the brain. This leads to higher cognitive function and protection against neurally degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. Furthermore, increased blood circulation can prevent diabetic patients from complications they are already at risk of due to their glucose level imbalances.
Hair care: Peppermint oil is very useful for hair care as it gives a cooling effect to the head, while removing dandruff and lice. Peppermint oil has antiseptic, regenerative, and stimulating effects, which means that it can relieve the scalp of irritation and dry skin, stimulate hair growth for those suffering from baldness, and give relatively healthy hair a shiny, fresh look. Peppermint oil can be found in many hair products and alternative solutions for baldness, dandruff, and other hair-related conditions. Increasing blood circulation to the scalp can also promote healthy hair growth.
Skin care: Peppermint oil contains menthol, which is good for the skin because it creates a cooling sensation. Furthermore, it nourishes dull skin and improves the texture of oily or greasy skin.
It is also believed that peppermint oil is useful in the treatment of cancer and tuberculosis, although more research needs to be done in these areas. Furthermore, peppermint oil has been a part of some preliminary studies as an antiviral agent that can reduce the chances of herpes infections and recurring outbreaks.
Ingestion of 100
percent peppermint oil can be toxic, so it is not safe to give it to
your child directly. Medline Plus states that pills containing
peppermint oil and a coating that prevents the oil from coming in
contact with your child's stomach is likely safe if they ares 8 years of
age or older. Do not apply peppermint oil to your child's
face in infancy. According to the University of Maryland Medical
Center, this can cause breathing problems that can be fatal. It may be safe to apply it to the skin when she is older, but be sure to ask your child's doctor first.
Your child can use soap scented with peppermint oil, but if you think your child could benefit from using peppermint oil for other purposes, talk to her doctor. If peppermint oil is a treatment option for your child, follow the doctor's instructions for dosage information.
