Hello Everyone,Click to read about our staff

I use essential oils quite often. Not only do I use them in my Aromatherapy Diffuser, but I use my oils in so many other ways. The favorite oils I use are peppermint, orange, tea tree, lavender, lemongrass, and eucalyptus.

I will feature benefits to each of these oils in the next
few issues. Today we are concentrating on peppermint oil.
I love this scent and using it in my diffuser when I'm
feeling a bit under the weather and stuffed up. Here are
some other great uses.

Peppermint is one essential oil you probably don't have at home, but should! As one of the oldest European herbs used for medicinal purposes, peppermint is great to have on hand to remedy a variety of aliments, but that's not all! Peppermint oil has tons of unexpected benefits you'll be glad you know about.

Hint 1: I have mentioned a few times how I love cleaning my kitchen with a vinegar water mixture. If you don't like the smell of vinegar add a few drops of peppermint oil.

Peppermint oil is full of natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Just mix some of the oil with water and vinegar to create an all-purpose house cleaner and get scrubbing!


Hint 2: Be more alert

A few drops of peppermint oil under your nose will keep you alert throughout the day.

Bonus Hints:

Indigestion/Constipation: Massaging the oil into your lower abdomen will relieve indigestion pain and get things moving again.

Motion sickness/Nausea: Massaging a few drops of peppermint oil into your wrists and abdomen will help combat your nausea. Making a cup of peppermint tea will also soothe your sick feeling.
