Cooling, clearing, soothing and invigorating. This is such a diverse Essential Oil. Just one drop of doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil is the equivalent of at least 28 cups of peppermint tea!
Peppermint Essential oil is soothing to the stomach, perfect for calming an upset tum and easing nausea. This oil can be taken internally, a drop or two in a glass of warm water or inside a veggie cap. Dilute with a carrier oil and massage into the abdomen.
Also a mainstay in the wintertime for soothing symptoms of coughs and colds. Massage diluted, onto the chest, diffuse into the air, inhale from your hands or from the bottle. Peppermint has the ability to reduce body temperature by up to five degrees, so you can massage, diluted in carrier oil, into the skin on the back and chest, to assist with relieving fever.
doTERRA Peppermint is 100% pure, so perfect for flavouring yummy foods such as Cacao Bliss Balls and Hot Chocolate, the list is endless.
Spiders hate the scent of Peppermint, so splash into a glass spray bottle with some water and spritz away. Also perfect for freshening and purifying the air and eradicating odours.
Known as one of the ‘hot oils’ due its naturally high menthol content, it is important to take care with sensitive areas such as eyes, pits and ‘bits’.
For a quick and effective pick-me-up, my favourite thing to do is to massage 2 drops of Peppermint & two drops of Lemon, undiluted, behind my neck. So uplifting and zingy!
