Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil has a variety of uses, from insect repellent to mental clarity. Peppermint is an oil I diffuse very often. When my allergies are acting up, I diffuse 2 drops each of peppermint, lemon, and lavender to promote respiratory health. When I need to concentrate, I diffuse peppermint.

  • Wake Up Call- mix with coconut oil and apply to the back of the neck and temples 
  • GI Upset- add 1 drop to a glass of water, or massage some into your abdomen to promote GI health
  • DIY Icy Hot- use in a carrier oil to help relieve sore muscles
  • Congestion- diffuse peppermint, lemon, and lavender to improve respiratory health. If you can’t diffuse, rub a couple drops in your palms and breathe deeply
  • Dandruff? Add a few drops to your shampoo to help clear your scalp or make your own shampoo using your oils. Here is a link I found to a great recipe:
  • Pest control- leave a peppermint soaked cotton ball anywhere you have ant problems
  • Sore feet- using a carrier oil and a few drops of oil, have your significant other massage your sore feet to ease the pain

Do you have another use for Peppermint oil? If so, leave it in the comments. I would love to learn new uses.

Thieves Essential Oil

After having my oils for a couple weeks now I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase. I diffuse essential oils daily and use them in various ways. I will start my first post on explaining these oils  with one of my favorite oils, Thieves.

“Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.” – Young Living Website

How to use: For dietary, aromatic, or topical use. When using as a supplement, dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid such as goat’s or rice milk. Diffuse for short periods of time (1/2 hour or less) in the work or home environment.Possible skin sensitivity. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Always dilute before applying to the skin or taking internally. Keep out of reach of children.

Ingredients: Clove† (Syzygium aromaticum), lemon† (Citrus limon), cinnamon† (Cinnamomum verum), Eucalyptus radiata† and rosemary† (Rosmarinus officinalis CT 1,8 cineol).

I diffuse Thieves when I start feeling a cold coming on, along with an Allergy Buster blend. (Not at the same time, in 2 hour increments.) Thieves smells amazing. It smells like fall time to me. Did your mother or grandmother ever peel oranges and combine the peels with cloves and cinnamon sticks in water? That is exactly what Thieves smells like. I love to apply a few drops to my steam mop to give my home a nice fresh, clean scent. I will be ordering Thieves cleaning products as soon as they come back into stock. I love it that much. I want to provide a chemical free environment for my dogs and children that come over.

New adventures

So I have taken the plunge and ordered Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit. I am going to start selling essential oils as a supplement to our income. I am not only going to be selling essential oils but also making things for my Etsy shop. I will post a link when I get it up and running. I am very excited to start this new venture. I have also recently discovered Erin Condren Life planners so I will be purchasing one soon! I absolutely love being organized. I will post pictures when I get it in and how I set it up.
