Revival is another favorite for yoga studios as it has invigorating notes of crisp peppermint. According to the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, it was noted that peppermint helps relax the smooth muscles of respiratory tract and therefore opens the airways, decreasing shortness of breath. Peppermint also has an antihistamine effect, coupled with the strong, cooling action of menthol that makes it a useful decongestant. The book, “Aromatherapy: A Complete Guide to the Healing Art,” cites peppermint oil as a ketone, meaning it is able to dissolve mucus. Not only has peppermint been shown to increase alertness, smelling the scent of peppermint will make you feel fuller faster and helps control appetite!
