Peppermint essential oil spotlight - one of the oils with the most everyday uses!! πŸ’¦

Wow, seriously the uses for DoTERRA's Peppermint essential oil are pretty endless, so here I will share my favourite uses & then give you a link to the rest! This oil packs a serious punch! 1 drop of peppermint is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea β˜•οΈ so there is some kick in each bottle & therefore should be used with care when applying topically to skin - always dilute!

Peppermint essential oil is a natural anti-inflammatory & it's cooling sensation has a calming effect on the body making it fabulous for relieving sore muscles & hot flushes!

Here's what we love to use Peppermint for......

πŸ’¦ Ok, so seriously, I have to start here........ BAKING...... yes oh.my.goodness.delicious.amazingness!!!!! Add 3-5 drops of peppermint to anything you make that has chocolate in it & you wont be disappointed! Chocolate Peppermint Brownie (HEAVEN - and a total fav in our household) - get the recipe from the Edmonds cookbook & then before you transfer your mixture to the baking dish, add 5 drops of peppermint, give it a stir - cook & EAT!! you won't want to share!!

πŸ’¦Energy/Alertness - so I'm not sure if you've ever seen me do a do-bong with peppermint oil, but this is a must-try! Place a drop of peppermint in the palm of your hand (and also a drop of wild orange if you have it) and then rub your hands together & inhale - seriously, inhale like you've never inhaled before & here's what happens - you get an energy ZING that goes right to your brain & wakes you the frick up! You then clear all your airways & just feel AMAZING! I then always rub the residue on the bottoms of my feet (making sure to avoid anywhere else on your body because you haven't diluted). A more subtle approach would be to diffuse 4 drops peppermint, 2 drops wild orange in your home or office for focus & alertness. Actually this is great for kids while they're doing their homework or study!

πŸ’¦ Headaches - if you are feeling head tension, a combo of Lavender, Frankincense & Peppermint is a fabulous natural relief. Apply topically (see roller recipe below) to forehead, temples & back of neck when you feel head tension coming on, continue to apply every hour. I also love to apply on the pressure points behind my ears as I hold a lot of tension here also.
Recipe (for adults in a 10ml roller) - 15 Frankincense, 10 Lavender, 10 Peppermint topped off with Fractionated Coconut Oil

πŸ’¦ Fevers & Hot Flushes - apply diluted on the back of neck, spine & bottoms of feet. If Eddie ever gets a temperature, this is the first thing we do. His childs roller is simply 15 drops Peppermint topped off with Fractionated Coconut oil in a 10ml roller

πŸ’¦ Bad Breath - gargle 1 drop peppermint with water or use the fabulous Peppermint Beadlets (1/4 drop of peppermint in each beadlet)

πŸ’¦ Blocked/congested nose - seriously, just place the open bottle under your nose & breathe in & out for a few breaths to clear.

πŸ’¦From an emotional perspective Peppermint brings joy & buoyancy to the heart & soul. It invigorates the body, mind & spirit & reminds you that life can be happy & doesn't need to be controlled by fear.
