One of the most common applications of peppermint is to ease indigestion or be used as a preventive treatment for nausea, as well as other digestive ailments. Its anesthetic effect gives off a cooling and numbing sensation that can relax strained or aching muscles.

Peppermint’s numbing sensation is often used to relieve migraines.

Like cough syrups, which are often mint in taste, peppermint will help to expel phlegm from the lungs. While only providing temporary relief from the cold symptoms, it can greatly help a sufferer get a peaceful nights sleep.

The peppermint stems can be chewed, steeped into a tea, or distilled into oil.
