How To: Peppermint Essential Oil

If you haven't used essential oils at some point in the past 5 years, I personally think that you are a minority in today's wellness centered population. I bought my very first one 3 years ago when I was pregnant with H&L. My morning sickness was OFF THE CHARTS. I didn't find much relief from anything, so it didn't surprise me that the peppermint essential oil I purchased wasn't extremely helpful either. After the boys were born I stumbled across an article that had ideas on how to use peppermint oil - I thought why not read it since I have that entire bottle just sitting in my medicine cabinet collecting dust. The article was exceptionally helpful and gave me tons of ideas on how to use peppermint oil! 

Here are my favorite ways to use Peppermint!

1. Headache Relief. I rub just a little on to my temples and back of my neck when I start having symptoms of a tension headache. To be completely honest, this is what sold me on learning more about and using essential oils. Very rarely do I have to take Ibuprofen due to a headache anymore! The oils help within 30 minutes. It's almost like magic. 

2. Diffusing on our main floor. Peppermint is a total pick-me-up oil! I like to put peppermint and lemon vitality in the diffuser in the morning - it's so refreshing and definitely puts some pep in my step. 

3. Shower aroma. I put 3-4 drops on a wet wash cloth and put it in the corner of the shower - it's a great aroma that is sure to help you jumpstart your day.
