I have grown an obsession with Peppermint Essential Oil..
The peppermint plant is a hybrid of water, mint and spearmint..
A high menthol content, just like the doTERRA Peppermint essential oil, it is by far the best quality Peppermint oil from other products.
Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint oil also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally.
For myself, it's what awakens me in the morning and helps with that afternoon slump.
I use Peppermint mostly with hand inhalation technique, good old aromatherapy.. At the spa, I will add Peppermint daily to the diffuser to create a balanced, grounded and positive vibe. It promotes clearer breathing with the herbaceous, minty fresh aroma.
For stomach upset and head tension, I apply to the area with some carrier oil (usually fractionated coconut oil) or I take internally 1 drop diluted through water.
Peppermint Essential oil is so potent, one drop goes along way..
