Peppermint Oil is One of my Favorites

I admit the first time I opened Peppermint Essential Oil, it was a bit overwhelming. I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not. It is now a favorite in my home. Personally, I use Peppermint when my nose is stuffy. I apply a couple of drops to a cotton ball, sniff a couple of times, and just like that I can breathe again. I use a cotton ball with Peppermint when I am working out to keep me invigorated.

Just last week, a friend was over when he complained of the onset of a migraine. I took out my

Peppermint, applied a couple of drops across his forehead. Within minutes the onset was gone and he was smiling again.

Living in Florida, the summers are hot and humid! When I go outside I apply it to my neck and my whole body stays cooler. Some people like to add Peppermint to water in an aluminum water bottle and spray it on for the same affect. You can use that same Peppermint water bottle and spray the corners of doors and hallways to repel spiders!

Peppermint is one of the oldest and most used Essential Oils. It is a refreshing and uplifting Oil and is Anti-inflammatory, Anti-tumoral, Anti-parasitic (worms) and curbs appetite. Some of its many uses include Respiratory infections, viral infections such as herpes simplex and zoster and cold sores, Candida, Digestive problems, Headaches, Migraines, Sinus Congestion, and Nausea. If you apply a drop directly on your tongue it will get rid of bad breath. (EOPR Sixth edition)

When Peppermint is diffused or inhaled directly it is purifying and stimulating to the conscious mind. It may help with attention and mental tasks, with Vertigo, faintness, coughs and travel sickness. Peppermint diffuses nicely with Eucalyptus, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, spearmint and wintergreen. My favorites are Peppermint and Lemon, I diffuse this combination almost daily.

Remember Young Living Essential Oils are Pure Therapeutic Grade Oils. They are very potent, so before applying oils directly to your skin do a test to make sure there is no skin sensitivity. Never put Plastic over oil, such as a band aid. Essential Oils and Plastic do not go well together.

Peppermint is one of ten oils that come with the Premium Starter Kit from Young Living.
