Peppermint is one of those fragrances and tastes that elicit all sorts of memories at this Holiday season…Peppermint Bark, Peppermint Candy canes, Peppermint Hot Cocoa, the list goes on. But peppermint is more than a taste, it is a powerful essential oil.
Today I’ll touch on a few ways to use peppermint in your daily life to improve your wellness quotient.
I’ll start with my personal examples: 3 months ago I developed an unknown issue that caused my body to itch all over. The itching kept me awake plus I had scratch marks over my body. Peppermint was one of my only friends. I mixed 1 drop of peppermint with my natural lotion and the cooling effect gave me instant relief. No more need to scratch.
Peppermint is my go-to when I work out. I refresh when I rehydrate by adding 2 drops of Peppermint Vitality™ to my 24 oz water bottle for an extra refreshing zing.
Wait Peppermint is more…
Sweeten your breath. Put a drop of Peppermint Vitality™ on your tongue to freshen your breath and get rid of any trace of those garlic-flavored kale chips you ate with lunch!
Stimulate your scalp. Add 3 drops of Peppermint to your shampoo in the morning and massage into your scalp for 2 minutes for a brisk way to start the day.
Support digestion. Add a drop or two of Peppermint Vitality™ to a mug of warm tea to help with gastrointestinal discomfort. Peppermint Vitality can support normal digestion and reduce feelings of discomfort after large meals.
Turn your holiday baked goods into something special. Infuse your Holiday baked goods with a drop of Peppermint Vitality™ Essential oil.! Yes, Young Living’s line of vitality oils are made for ingestion and cooking.
Shake up your morning shower. Put 2 drops of Peppermint and 2 drops of Eucalyptus Radiata on a washcloth and put it on the shower floor just out of the direct stream of water. The steam will surround you with an invigorating aroma!
In closing, I’ll leave you with this spectacular Holiday Diffuser Blend.
