At first, I didn’t believe what I was hearing. How could a drop or two of an essential oil really work for so many things. My doubting self said “Oh Yeah – prove it”. So I tried it myself. Interested to hear the results?
Keep reading……..everything in GREEN below is my personal experience using this amazing oil. Please note that I use only doTerra brand oils. I’ve done my research and they are the purest and safest oils in the marketplace. That also makes them really cost effective because it takes only a few drops to get results.
Peppermint – SO many uses for this oil! Here are a few of them. If you’re interested in the power of peppermint – you will find another link to an article “25 uses for Peppermint Oil”. Prepare to be further surprised with all it can do for you and your family.
If you suffer from headaches, this is a must have in your medicine cabinet. It’s also great as a breath freshener. I tried it for fresh breath – it totally worked. For a headache I applied a few drops across my forehead and temples (not too close to the eyes). Helped to chill down that achy head stuff.
It also deters mice, ants and spiders naturally. Put a few drops on your kitchen counter if you’re having troubles with ants or in the corners of your tent to ward off spiders. I’ve had great success with mice and ants. I sprayed a peppermint and water solution along my baseboards as well as my counters when I first saw ants this year. Did it a few more times that first week and haven’t seen any ants since. Sooooo much safer and healthier that chemical sprays and traps. Also worked in a kitchen cupboard for a wayward mouse. I sprinkled a couple of drops on cotton balls and tucked them into each corner of the cupboard. NEVER saw that wee mouse again!!
Peppermint is also a cooling oil so you can mix some with water and spritz it on yourself to cool you off on those hot, humid days. You can also put a drop or two on your hands, rub them together and then use your hands to apply to back of neck and shoulders. YUPPERS – when you’re not spraying for ants – just turn the same spray on yourself on a hot and humid day. You will smell and FEEL fresh and cool!
Flying somewhere this summer? Diffuse peppermint and grapefruit to battle jet-lag! doTERRA brand can be added to your water for a pick me up as well. Truthbomb! I haven’t tried this one yet – won’t be flying until September – but I will try this out and get back to you with my results. Stay tuned.
