      Peppermint oil is great. Peppermint oil comes from the peppermint plant, which is a hybrid of spearmint and water mint. People have used peppermint oil for centuries to treat a range of illnesses, including digestive conditions, colds, and headaches.

      However, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), scientists have only carried out a small amount of research into the effects of peppermint oil.
