Here is how I was able to replace some of my most commonly used over the counter drugs with simple peppermint essential oil remedies! I feel so much better knowing that I am putting less harsh ingredients into my body and my families’! These are pure, natural remedies right from mother nature that are not only safe but effective!
Excedrin Migraine, Tylenol, Ibuprofen–
Mix 10 drops peppermint and 5 drops lavender with fractionated coconut oil and put in a 10ml glass roller bottle. The combination of the cooling menthol in the peppermint and calming lavender will help tackle that headache fast! As a bonus, add a few drops of Frankincense and Lemon! Frankincense can help tighten skin and get rid of skin discolorations and wrinkles. Lemon is a natural detoxifier and can help get rid of blemishes and clear out clogged pores!
Vicks Vapor Rub–
Mix 10 drops of peppermint oil and 10 drops of Eucalyptus with regular coconut oil and store in a glass container, I like using mason jars! The eucalyptus and peppermint combination will fight against running nose, sore throat, congestion and help reduce fevers. In addition the coconut oil is wonderful for your skin and can help reduce inflammation!
Prilosec or Tums–
Add a few drops of Peppermint Vitality to your water or in a gel capsule. This can help fight against heartburn, nausea, and digestive problems! This is also great to diffuse or use in a roller blend for morning sickness!
Mix 10 drops of Peppermint with regular coconut oil to create a great muscle rub! Apply the mixture to your muscles after a tough workout for any sore, achy muscle pains! Add a few drops of Lavender for added relaxation and soothing benefits, plus a great aroma!
*These are just a few of the remedies I have used Peppermint oil for so far but there are so MANY more amazing benefits out there!
