When I first started using Peppermint, I put a few drops (maybe 5) of it in my water and I about nearly died! I didn't think that the oils would be that strong. Young Living definitely has 100% pure essential oil in their bottles. I downed my water because I didn't want to waste it. Let me tell you, I had fresh breathe for DAYS!!
The next day I reduced my drops to 2 and I was in heaven. I mixed it with Lemon and Grapefruit as part of the "weight loss trio." I noticed that my appetite was curbed. This was the start of me falling in love with my oils.
When I got a headache, I rubbed a combination of Peppermint and other oils to help relieve the pain. After rubbing the oils on my temples and the back of my neck, I inhaled the aroma from my hands. My body relaxed so quickly that my headache started to release. And I think my eyes rolled back because it was so relieving.
Yesterday the kids had swim lessons. The indoor pool area was so HOT! So I grabbed my Peppermint and rubbed a drop on my neck and shoulders and fanned myself. The cooling effect of the oil made sitting there much more enjoyable. So if you get hot flashes, this oil is your new best friend! Have a fever? Let it do its job first and then bring it down with a drop of Peppermint.
Bean sometimes has digestive issues. A quick swipe of Peppermint on her tummy is just the fix for her and off she goes and moves on with her day. And just to be on the safe side, I throw on the germ buster cream on the bottoms of her feet to kick the germs away.
Allergies? Combined with the right oils, makes them go away. No more allergy meds for this gal!
