Benefits of Citrus and Peppermint Scents

Recent studies have shown quite a few health benefits from both peppermint and citrus fragrances and oils. How can these benefits been seen in your everyday life?

A 2011 study done at Wheeling Jesuit University showed that after smelling peppermint oil every two hours, participants felt less hungry, and ate fewer calories per week than those who did not smell the peppermint oil. The same team also found that breathing in peppermint oil led participants to feeling more energized and alert. Our Pure Peppermint essential oil may have the same effects!

Meanwhile, a Brazilian Study asked participants to spend five minutes breathing in one of three different smells: orange oil, tea tree oil, or water. The participants who smelled the orange oil reported lower stress levels during a subsequent test. If you're looking to recreate these effects at home, try our Orange Fields or Bergamot Burst essential oils.
