Since my husband, my child and I suffer from allergic rhinitis, I diffuse this oil to clear our stuffy nose. Topically, apply this EO to my temples to alleviate headaches. I also apply it to my child's insect bites to help reduce itching. Or if I just want to relax, I inhale this EO directly from its bottle! I really love how versatile and multipurpose this peppermint essential oil is!
