Why Peppermint Essential Oil?

Posted on March 9, 2013


Natural products are effective. They are healthy and safe. They are also cheaper and last longer. Learning about their properties and how to use them is often one of the best changes you can make in your life. Try replacing the poisonous chemicals found in store-bought soap, cleaning products and even toothpaste with baking soda and essential oils.

In leading an energy filled, healthy life style, I suggest stocking 4 to 5 multi-purpose essential oils  for your therapeutic, cosmetic and hygiene needs. Be ready to make an array of products by adding baking soda, vinegar and coconut oil to this kit.

Our focus today is peppermint essential oil.

Here’s an easier recipe. And another.

Peppermint extract is used to flavour food. Yumm. P.S. I do not condone unhealthy food but this picture is pretty. P.S.S. consumption of an entire batch of cookies can make you sick.

Digestion begins in the mouth. Do yourself and your family a favour, don’t digest chemicals twice a day. Every chemical matters, and if by the time you sit down to breakfast you’re already been exposed to 12 or more, what do you think will happen to your cells?
