Peppermint Essential Oil – With Chocolate Peppermint Brownie Recipe!

Uses for Peppermint Oil - https://essentiallycrossfit.wordpress.com/

One of my favorite oils in the Premium Starter Kit is Peppermint. There are quite a few uses for peppermint – in fact while the husband and I were driving along the Oregon coast for our family vacation I made sure to bring some along with me. I have a tendency to get really car sick and was worried about driving so much on our trip.  I mixed up some peppermint with some coconut oil and kept it close at hand.  One day we were on a particularly curvey road and I was getting pretty sick. I rubbed my concoction on my belly and with in minutes my nauseous went away. For the win.

Getting Started!

Hello!

While I may be newer to the Essential Oil world I am enthusiastic! I use these oils for anything I can come up with.  To sore muscles, to diffuse fatigue away, and to help build natural health. I love that they are all natural and safe even for children to use!  I’m hoping to get those around me just as excited about these oils as I am! Stay tuned for more updates and information and feel free to contact me with any questions!
