Is inhaling peppermint oil dangerous? The answer is absolutely yes, if you inhale and breathe in peppermint oil on a daily basis, then, you are going to find yourself suffering from terrible side effects and consequences, I have already talked about this in many of my previous posts, but for now, let me tell you this loud and clear:
Inhaling peppermint oil without knowing what you are doing is extremely dangerous, it can cause hallucinations, vision problems, and may even increase headaches and sinus problems, so, be very careful, do not use peppermint oil haphazardly, it’s very powerful substance.
I don’t want to scare you when I tell you that peppermint oil, inhaling it, can be very dangerous, but it’s the truth, after all, it’s an essential oil, and anyone telling you that it can be used easily is simply lying to you or he or she don’t know what is going on!
The idea behind this website is to educate people about the dangers and most importantly, the right way to use essential oil, especially peppermint oil. I know that a lot of you are interested in essential oils and treating themselves and their skins with these amazing products, however, you have to be careful.
Throughout my posts, I have explained over and over to my readers that peppermint oil is no easy substance, it’s no friendly oil so to speak, it’s very powerful, and you need to always mix it with a carrier oil, don’t worry, I’m going to show you what you need to do in the end of this post, trust me, it’s very healthy that you know how to use peppermint oil the right way, especially when inhaling it, this will keep you away from lots of side effects and problems.
So, after inhaling peppermint oil for an extended period of time, let’s say that you inhale it every single day for one hour, you are going to end up suffering from terrible side effects, the most terrible of which, from my experience, are hallucinations and heart palpitations!
This has happened to me in the past, and I highly recommend that you read my previous posts, they will show you exactly what applying peppermint oil on a daily basis can do, but for now, let me tell you that you should never inhale peppermint oil if you don’t know what you are doing.
So, here are my recommendations:
You need to inhale peppermint oil only when you mix it with a carrier oil, in this situation, I want you to take two drops of almond oil and simply mix them with one drop of peppermint oil, then, apply under your nose, it’s very powerful.
When you are done, I want you to wait for a minimum of twenty-five minutes, then, wipe everything using a clean paper towel.
You should also do this for a maximum of seven consecutive days, avoid using it any further.
