– BACK TO SCHOOL SERIES – Peppermint
If you love simple natural solutions for your family, then Essential Oils are definitely something you will love. They are simple, effective & natural. One Essential Oil can have a multitude of different benefits, which makes them so effective in assisting our bodies to work at their optimal capacity and to heal. dōTERRA Essential Oils have no additives and are the highest purest form you will come across. That is why I have chosen this brand over many others I have tried over the years…they are what they claim to be, PURE, UNADULTERATED. Hurray!
Day 2 – PEPPERMINT – a fantastic oil for Alertness + Memory, Respiratory Support and Tummy Upsets.
One of the things I love about Peppermint is that it’s an Expectorant. That simply means that it can help clear away phlegm and other fluids from the respiratory tract. We all know how prone kids are to snotty noses, Peppermint is fab for helping with the sniffles, and can also help with allergies too!
Popping a drop or two into your kitchen diffuser during homework time is a great way to get the benefits of Peppermint aromatically.
You can rub Peppermint into the soles of your kids feet (diluted of course – guide – 1 drop EO to 1 tbsp Carrier Oil) before you pop their socks on for school to help with alertness & energy.
You can send your kids off to school with a drop on their school collar, but be careful not to get it near their eyes. The menthol is so strong it can make their eyes water!!! Always wash your hands after using Essential Oils because if you touch your eyes afterwards, it will hurt!!
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s oil for Back to School. Leave me a comment below if you like!
