What is Docteur Valnet Organic Peppermint Essential Oil used for?

Peppermint essential oil is a general stimulant and nerve tonic. It is antiseptic, antifungal and anti-herpetic (even resistant to acyclovir). It is also a nasal decongestant, migraine reducer and skin anesthetic. The distinctive scent of peppermint (Mentha piperita - family Lamiaceae) is found in many products, including toothpastes and gels. This fragrance is due above all to one of its main constituents, menthol, well-known for its soothing, insecticidal and refreshing effects. Internally, this plant is used mainly to improve digestion.

Peppermint essential oil is indicated for spasmodic colitis, digestive spasms, gastro-oesophageal reflux and urinary lithiasis. Certified organic by Docteur Valnet, peppermint essential oil has a particularly rich and complex biochemical profile, giving it a multitude of pharmacological actions, notably antispasmodic and choleretic.

It acts as a liver regulator and protector, inhibiting smooth muscle spasms caused by agents such as acetylcholine, histamine and serotonin. This action is comparable to that of atropine, with particular efficacy in reducing spasms of the sphincter of Oddi, thus promoting vessel dilation. Its relaxing property also acts on calcium channels, making it useful in the treatment of colonic spasms.

As a choleretic and cholagogue, the essential oil stimulates bile secretion and excretion, thanks in particular to its fluidifying ketones. Its blood purifying effects are manifested by theelimination of free radicals and metabolic waste products, notably those resulting from various therapies. It also facilitates colonoscope insertion during colonoscopies, thanks to its ability to reduce spasms of the large intestine.

The essential oil'slocal analgesic action is mainly due to menthol, which stimulates cold receptors and reduces sensitivity to pain. Clinical trials have demonstrated its effectiveness in treating migraine attacks, by shortening their duration. The oil's analgesic properties are based on selective activation of kappa-opioid receptors, particularly when applied topically. The oil's anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating effects have proved effective against Schistosoma mansoni infections.

On the antimicrobial front, this essential oil shows significant antibacterial activity against several pathogens, including Staphylococcus aureus, Neisseria meningitidis, Salmonella enteridis and Listeria monocytogenes. It also acts against acyclovir-resistant HSV-1 and HSV-2 viruses, and has antifungal properties against Trichosporon ovoides. The menthol contained in the essential oil also plays a part in reducing antibiotic resistance by interacting with the bacterial quorum sensing system, and has a remarkable antiplasmid action, particularly on Escherichia coli.

On a systemic level, peppermint essential oil has a variety of effects, such as nasal decongestion, cerebral stimulation and promotion of metabolic cellular respiration. It also has a cortison-like effect if monoterpene content exceeds 10%. It also exerts an immunostimulant effect, boosting innate immunity and humoral response, and has secretolytic and astringent properties. Menthol, the predominant active ingredient, has an antispasmodic effect on muscular fibers of the digestive and respiratory systems of animals. Cutaneous application of peppermint essential oil generates a sensation of cold, modulating the sensitivity of pain receptors.

Thanks to its active components, peppermint essential oil contributes significantly to various pharmacological functions, making it useful in a wide range of therapeutic applications.

Our advice and expert pharmacy opinions

Although the first mentions of peppermint date back to ancient Egypt, it is only relatively recently, in the historical context, that its use for medicinal purposes has developed. During the 17th century, a new variety, Mentha x piperita, was created by hybridizing three previously known mint species: M. aquatica, M. longifolia and M. rotundifolia. This new species, richer in aroma, belongs to the Lamiaceae family.

Dried mint leaves, like the essential oil extracted from its flowers, have been valued for their therapeutic virtues. Initially, the essential oil was rubbed on the temples to relieve headaches, or inhaled for the symptomatic treatment of respiratory ailments such as colds and coughs. Today, interest is focused more on mint's antispasmodic properties, which are proving effective in the treatment of nausea, bloating and intestinal inflammation.

We recommend peppermint essential oil for headaches, nausea and motion sickness.

Peppermint essential oil, complex botanical hybrid Peppermint essential oil, complex botanical hybrid

Illustrious since antiquity, peppermint was first described in England in 1696 and subsequently cultivated in Germany and then in the Netherlands around 1750. Traces of its cultivation date back nearly 4,000 years . In Edfu, Egypt, hieroglyphs found on the walls of a temple indeed allow us to consider that the Egyptians used mint to make a number of ceremonial perfumes . Then dedicated to Horus , it…
