Peppermint


I didn't think that I would be using the peppermint essential oil that I received in my introductory packet much; but, I was wrong. I have had many occasions to use it with success.

My son now reaches for it when he has a headache instead of a non-aspirin product. He loves the smell and says that it works. My daughter said it instantly makes your headache feel better.

I have used it to open my airways up when I had a cold. Last night my 3 year old granddaughter spent the night with us and all she did was cough. I put a drop on the bottom of each foot and her chest. I swear she didn't cough for 2 hours and could breath better. She went right to sleep also.

Peppermint is also good for nausea. I haven't had to use it for that yet. Here is a link for 33 different ways to use peppermint essential oils. (Please, if you are going to use it for cooking and food; use only doTerra because you are assured certified pure therapeutic grade [CPTG]).
