Peppermint’s cool, revitalizing nature is refreshing for both mind & body. From skincare & digestive support to aiding focus & clarity, the applications are endless! Here are a few of our favorites for everyday health & wellness:
Diffusion: To boost mental clarity & relieve occasional stomach upset, diffuse several drops of Peppermint in an ultrasonic diffuser or rub a drop between both palms & breathe deeply.
Skincare: Soothe occasional blemishes, insect bites, redness & irritation by applying 1-2 drops of Peppermint in a pump of carrier oil or moisturizer. Avoid application near the eyes.
Digestive Support: Add a few drops of Peppermint to your favorite moisturizer or carrier oil & massage in a circular motion into the abdomen & lower back.
Tip: Peppermint is excellent for keeping pesky bugs away! Try applying several drops to a cotton ball or piece of wood and place in the area of concern. For a spray, blend 10-20 drops with water in a 1oz spray bottle. Apply daily as needed – this is also great for protecting plants!
