Peppermint is usually one of the first essential oils that people buy! It’s fresh, clean and invigorating. It has so many wonderful things that it can be used for. As long as you don’t have very young children, it should be in your stash!
So what do you do with your peppermint? I really love stirring 4 drops into 1/4 cup of Epsom salt and then placed in a basin of warm water for a relaxing but invigorating foot soak. Here are a few other ideas so you can get the most bang for your buck using your peppermint essential oil:
- Use a 5 drops of peppermint with 3 drops of Lemon on a personal inhaler to combat nausea.
- Upset stomach? Try combing 3 drops of Peppermint and 3 drops of Ginger and apply in a clockwise motion on the abdomen.
- For muscle strains or sprains try using 4 drops of peppermint with 6 drops of Rosemary in 1 ounce of carrier or unscented lotion. Apply to area of concern.
