Young Living Peppermint Oil

My Peppermint Stick from CanTeach.Ca.

Oh, I took a lick of my peppermint stick,
and I thought it tasted yummy.
It used to be on my Christmas tree,
but I like it better in my tummy.

As I write this, I am reminded just how much peppermint evokes Christmas. It brings back the sights and smells of that time of year.

You can recreate that feeling just by adding a drop of peppermint to your tea.

By the way, 1 drop of Young Living Peppermint Oil is equal to about 30 cups of peppermint tea. That should tell you the power of these oils.

Very little is needed to bring about a powerful change.

No wonder it is incorporated into so many Young Living blends

Now that we have completed cleansing, the body is prepared to digest. Peppermint is a great digestive aid. It can act quickly and agreeably for the stomach, intestines and gall bladder. It relieves difficult digestion, overeating and stomach discomfort. It helps pass food taken in excess or in the wrong combinations.

It works particularly well to calm painful stomach spasms.

It can be used topically, or internally in tea or water.

Peppermint Oil works on multiple body systems, including digestive, muscles, bones, nervous, respiratory and skin.

Peppermint Oil has been used for centuries to relieve colic, gas and heartburn.

One of the best uses is for headaches. Apply in small strokes on the forehead, temples and behind the ears. Also massage the nape of the neck (alternate with Young Living Lavender)

For nausea or motion sickness just inhale.

For a stuffy nose – If you can’t smell the oil put three drops of peppermint oil on two tablespoons of good honey (not too liquid). Mix the aromatic mixture well and put an amount the size of a pea on the tongue. The molecules will go behind the pharynx and into the nasal cavities decongesting and opening up the passages.

For hiccups - put a trace of peppermint on the 5th cervical vertebra. To find it touch the large vertebra at the base of the neck and go up three notches. Put the oil on each side without trying to massage and the hiccups will stop in a short time.

For pain relief – from a sudden injury or blow. Use immediately and the pain will subside quickly. Also can be used around a cut or sore for the pain. It also has anti-trauma action so it should be in your aroma emergency kit.

Concentration and focus for writing, giving a speech or taking a test (increases accuracy). I recommend 1 drop of Peppermint Oil on the third eye (middle of the forehead) benefiting from the lingering feeling of it there. It is usually so powerful, directly focuses attention. It is also purifying and stimulating to the conscious mind.

After doing a reflexology session with my clients, I use peppermint either straight or in a cream to pep them up and revive them after being so relaxed. I don’t want any accidents on the way home because someone fell asleep at the wheel.

Peppermint Oil is good for the nerves and nervous system. I use Young Living peppermint oil to help regenerate damaged nerves from my childhood stroke. It helps elevate and open the sensory system.

I have to say it has been a good stimulant to my system.

To curb appetite- inhale 5-10 times a day

Cool the body by adding a drop to drinking water or tea.

Further uses: Anti-inflammatory (prostate and nerves), sinus problems, asthma, bronchitis, shock, candida, reduces fever, hot flashes, itchy skin, hives, tuberculosis, arthritis, rheumatism, liver problems, colic, diarrhea, food poisoning, morning sickness, toothaches, flu, fatigue, hysteria, depression  and anger.

CAUTIONS:

 A little goes a long way. Young Living Peppermint Oil is very potent. Keep away from the eyes.

If you get it in your eye use another oil (massage or vegetable) to cleanse and neutralize the sting.

DO NOT use oils rich in menthol for children under 3, some recommend under 6. Use with caution and dilute well for children 6 years and older.

Do not use before bedtime. It is very stimulating, and will pep you up in the morning if you use it on your feet.

Use caution during pregnancy

Use caution if dealing with high blood pressure

Peppermint varieties and qualities vary widely, due to, climate, altitude, growing conditions, etc. The same variety, grown in a cool, mountain climate is preferable to those, grown in hot, poor soil conditions. (Corn or field mint, a varietal of peppermint, is NOT for therapeutic use).

Without knowing the origin of most commercial peppermint oils, it is impossible to tell if they have been extracted from plants that are best for therapeutic purposes.
