I've recently begun using essential oils. They are so therapeutic and I tend to choose ones that are calming in some form or fashion.
I had received a bottle of Peppermint Essential Oil from La Lune Naturals and never realized how many benefits the Peppermint Oil had.
After doing some research, I have found that some of the health benefits of peppermint oil include its ability to treat indigestion, respiratory problems, headache, nausea, fever, stomach and bowel spasms, as well as for pain relief. Pain relief can come in the form of soothing burns !
I posted a photo on Instagram of a very nasty sunburn I received while bike riding. A friend of mine commented that I should use a carrier oil and peppermint oil to ease the sting.
So I used a Sweet Almond Carrier oil with the peppermint and I really did help. I had to have hubby help since it was my back, but it was so much better even after the 1st application !
I've also used the Peppermint Oil for headaches. The pollen lately has been horrible and my sinus and allergies are flaring up. I try to take meds as little as possible, so finding out that I could use the Peppermint Oil for headaches, well, sign me up !
The instructions said to dilute it, but I was in so much pain, I went full strength. I put a small couple of drops on a cotton ball and swiped my forehead, back of neck, behind my ears, and my temples.
The cooling and anti-inflammatory properties are part of the reason why it is so successful at relieving headache symptoms. It has made my headaches much smaller and at times, disappear all together. My oldest thought I was nuts until he had a headache one day and I put the oil on him.
He's a believer now !
I have also used the Peppermint Oil as a relief when I am stressed. I read that not only can inhaling the oil help to provide relief from stress, depression and mental exhaustion due to its refreshing nature. It is also effective against anxiety and restlessness.
I keep my bottle of La Lune Naturals Peppermint Essential Oil in a handy and accessible spot (which is usually my desk). If I am having difficulty focusing, I take a whiff of the oil and just sit and breathe. It helps me calm down and refocus my brain on the task at hand.
If you are ready to try the La Lune Naturals Peppermint Essential Oil, head over to Amazon for a bottle of your own !
Make sure that you read about the various applications, sensitivities, and follow instructions when it comes to the various ways to use any essential oil.
