stimulate the brain to improve memory

Peppermint oil can help stimulate the brain to improve memory and concentration. When massaged into the skin, it helps calm the nerves and relaxes and refreshes the body and mind.

We use this oil in combination with other essential oils to treat our daughter with Cerebral Palsy.
