Oil Wednesday: Peppermint Essential oil

Peppermint Essential oil:

              When you hear Peppermint essential oil, what is the first thing you think about? My mind goes directly towards the holiday season. I am not much of a Halloween person, but I am all about that Christmas spirit! I love me some peppermint mocha coffee or some peppermint bark! Talk about Yum!

              Anyways, tis the season since it’s coming up and say hello to your winter BFF oil! Peppermint essential oil is good for A LOT of things, but let’s start with how it’s made. From the Young Living website directly, “Peppermint is originally from Europe, but 75 percent of the world’s supply is now grown in the United States. To produce one of Young Living’s most popular oils, we look to several farms, including our Whispering Springs Farm in Mona, Utah. “

Peppermint oil can be used topically, with aromatherapy, and internally (vitality version ONLY). It is a stronger oil so it would need to be diluted around kids or if you prefer a lighter scent of it.

What are some of the uses of this specific oil?

Peppermint creates a tingly/cooling sensation on the skin when applied. Which makes it a perfect additive to a headache roller or muscle relief after a long day of physical activity! You can also bake with this oil (vitality version) and you can add it to your hot chocolate to make it the perfect holiday blend! You can add it to your bath to create a cooling/ tension relief. Stressful day at work and don’t have your stress away oil? Add a few drops of peppermint oil and it will hold you over! This oil is also particularly good for focus aid.

Recipes/ Ideas

  • Diffuse while you are studying or needing a little focus help in your life.
