Eucalyptus extract may act as a pain reliever, and research indicates that the oil may have analgesic properties. In a study published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, scientists applied Eucalyptamint on the anterior forearm skin of 10 people.
The scientists concluded that “Eucalyptamint, produced significant physiologic responses that may be beneficial for pain relief and/or useful to athletes as a passive form of warm-up.”
According to a study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, improved athletic performance and lung function were shown in males who supplemented with peppermint essential oil. Additional positive findings included reduced resting heart rate and systolic blood pressure. Topically, it provides a cooling sensation that may help with pain relief and muscle recovery.
