You know that feeling you get when you’re so hot that even fans and A/C don’t satisfy the deep need to chill out?
Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil is my go-to oil to keep “cool” due to the natural peppermint oil cooling effect. This oil is refreshing and naturally invigorating! It helps to reduce my body temperature in just minutes.
All the sudden, a hot summer day feels like this:
I love to add a couple of drops of Peppermint Essential Oil to my unscented lotion in the summer to instantly cool down and re-energize. The Peppermint Oil cooling effect is fast and lasts for a long time.
Peppermint is commonly used in toothpaste, breath mints, and mouthwashes, but did you know that you can also use Peppermint Essential Oil to assist with headaches, digestion challenges, and hot flashes, too?
Historically, Peppermint has been used for everything from lowering inflammation to naturally deterring rodents to flavoring and cooking your favorite meals. Peppermint is considerably more potent in its concentrated form. One drop of our Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil has the potency of approximately 28 cups of peppermint tea. So a word to the wise, less is more when it comes to Peppermint.
Use Peppermint Oil To Cool Your Body Down
To cool my body down after a hot day out in the sun, I use Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil. I take one drop of Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil and ¼ teaspoon of Guru Nanda® Fractionated Coconut Oil or Guru Nanda® Sweet Almond Oil, mix the oils in the palms of my hands, and apply them to the back of my neck. Then, I breathe in deeply.
When the weather is hot, I add a drop of Peppermint essential oil to my unscented lotion and apply the mixture all over my arms and legs. I also really like the invigorating and refreshing feeling it gives me. It is an excellent oil to use as a natural “pick me up” before a meeting when I need to feel alert and focused.
Peppermint Oil Fights Common Digestion Challenges
For assisting with everyday common digestion challenges, I put one drop of Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil into either the Guru Nanda® Fractionated Coconut Oil or Guru Nanda® Sweet Almond Oil and apply it lightly to my abdomen. It helps relieve my upset stomach right away. If my stomach discomfort hasn’t gone completely away, I simply reapply the mixture every hour or so until I find relief.
When I get the occasional tension headache, I put one drop of Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil into 10 drops of carrier oil, either the Fractionated Coconut Oil or the Sweet Almond Oil, and rub the oils into my temples, breathing in the cooling aroma.
Take caution, headache symptoms could be a sign of something more serious going on in your body, so it’s always best to check in with your doctor. Also, essential oils are not to be used in the ears, up the nose, in your eyes or any other sensitive areas.
Peppermint Oil as a Natural Deterrent
I’m also not a fan of spiders and crawly critters, so I made a natural deterrent that won’t harm these insects, but still keeps them from entering my home. I picked up a spray bottle from my local hardware store that holds 20 ounces of water and added ten drops of Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil around the windows. You can use this as often as you like, and it’s fantastic for your home garden as well. It deters bugs from eating your herbs, fruits, and veggies before you do!
I could go on and on about all of the Guru Nanda® Peppermint Essential Oil uses and benefits! It’s easy to incorporate Guru Nanda Peppermint essential oil into your daily routine, so get your “cool” on and pick up yours today!
