Underestimated Peppermint!

DoTerra Essential Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil
Mentha piperita

Peppermint is popular in countless forms, from toothpaste to chewing gum. As an essential oil, it is useful to ease breathing and as a digestive aid

Peppermint is one of the oldest — and most highly regarded — herbs, and has been an integral part of herbal medicine for thousands of years.  It has a very wide range of uses, from soothing digestion to improving concentration and mental accuracy.

-

Key properties of peppermint oil

Some of the therapeutic properties ofpeppermint include: analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, antiseptic, anti-spasmodic, astringent, expectorant and stimulant.

-

Common uses for peppermint oil

Peppermint oil can be used for its calming effect to relieve stress and tension.  It is also effective for relieving the headaches associated with stress or digestive upset, as well as for migraines.  Just apply a few drops to the back of the neck for stress, or to the temples to relieve a headache. (careful not to get in eyes)

During the cold and flu season, peppermint can really prove itself to you.  It works well in reducing fever (just apply a few drops to the bottom of the feet).  It is also great at opening and clearing sinus and respiratory congestion.  It relieves headaches, diarrhea and nausea, and can bring a wide range of comforts to the misery of colds and flu.  (I’d hate to be sick without it.)

 The FDA has certified peppermint as GRAS, so it may also be ingested.  I’ll put a drop or two on the tongue and let it dissolve there before swallowing.

Peppermint is a natural choice to add refreshment to any beverage.  I also add it to purified water to sooth my digestion and to refresh and invigorate me.  It also freshens the breath and reduces the buildup of the bacteria that cause dental plaque and gum problems.

 During the summer months, it offers the added benefits of being very cooling, making hot weather much more bearable.

The fragrance of peppermint oil is uplifting and invigorating.  Applied topically, this oil is very soothing to tired, sore muscles.  It has analgesic properties, and can be helpful for menstrual problems or skin disorders.

=========================

Peppermint oil was used by the ancient Egyptians and Romans, as well as many other groups throughout history.  Today, it is very widely used in foods, candies, gums, dental products, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.  In fact, it may well be one of the most readily recognizable scents and flavors.

However, because of essential oils, like peppermint, gaining mainstream acceptance, it is more important than ever before to avoid essential oils that are impure or of inferior quality.  In today’s economy, anything that is widely accepted tends to get mass produced; but, with high volume production processes, there is generally a sacrifice of quality and purity for the sake of the bottom line.

With essential oils, as with most things, you get what you pay for.

———————————

Modern research into peppermint oil

Recently, peppermint has been the focus of several studies that target its known benefits for improved digestion and anti-inflammatory activity in the intestinal tract.  Dr. P. Gardiner, M.D. has done studies on peppermint for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), digestive disorders, as a decongestant and for headaches.

Jean Valnet, M.D., studied peppermint’s effect on the liver and respiratory systems.

Other scientists have researched peppermint’s ability, when inhaled, to restore impaired taste and smell.

Dr. William N. Dember, of the University of Cincinnati, studied peppermint’s ability to improve concentration and mental accuracy.  It was found that, when peppermint was diffused in a room, the subjects were much more mentally alert, and mental accuracy was improved by about 25%.

Alan Hirsch, M.D., studied peppermint’s ability to directly affect the brain’s satiety center, which triggers a sense of fullness after meals.  As you can imagine, this could make peppermint oil a very helpful aide for weight loss

-==========-

Other uses for peppermint oil

Rub 4-6 drops in the palm and rub over stomach and around the navel to relieve indigestion, flatulence and diarrhea.

-

Add a drop of peppermint oil to herbal tea, to aid in digestion and relieve heartburn.

-

Apply peppermint oil immediately to an injured area (bruised shin, hit on the foot or hand) to relieve pain.  If there is a cut, apply thepeppermint oil around (not on) the open wound.

-

Inhale peppermint oil before and during a workout, to boost your mood and reduce fatigue.

-

To stop hiccups, apply a drop of peppermint oil on each side of the fifth cervical vertebra (up three notches from the large vertebra at the base of the neck).

-

Place two drops of peppermint oil on the tongue and rub another drop under the nose to improve alertness and concentration.  (Note: be careful not to swallow right away; allow the oil to completely dissolve on the tongue before swallowing.)

-

To deter rats, mice, ants or cockroaches, place two drops of peppermint oil on a cotton ball, and place along the path or point of entry for these pests.

-

Inhale the fragrance of peppermint oil to curb the appetite and lessen the impulse to overeat.

==
CAUTION: As Clary Sage can make some people feel exceedingly woozy and faint please avoid using it with alcohol, or when driving or needing to focus.

Due to its estrogen-like effect it may cause complications with conditions sensitive to estrogen.

Testimonial:
I gave birth to my third baby a little while ago and it was a wonderful experience. The labor and delivery went wonderful. I used clary sage and lavender during labor, and after birth to relax me, help soothe the contractions. I had my baby in the hospital, and it was so wonderful to have my oils along with me. I definitely believe in the use of modern medicine, but if I can take care of something myself first…by all means I would much rather do it. Especially with something that is natural, has no side effects and is beneficial for my body.
It was so nice, in the middle of the nightwhen I was in pain because my uterus was contracting back down, I didn’t have to call a nurse to give me medication. I could just rub Lavender and Clary sage on my lower abdomen and lower back. The nurses would come in and say, “oh, it smells so good in here.”
It was also quite nice that I could tell my doctor I didn’t need any prescriptions. I went home, enjoyed my baby and didn’t have any of the negative side effects that pain medication usually give me.
One of my favorite things to do following childbirth was to take a bath each night. I would put several drops of Lavender and Clary Sage in the tub. It was just the thing I needed, it was very soothing and relaxing. It helped with the anxiety of having my third baby and dealing with two other active children all day. I know this really helped me to not get the baby blues-doTERRA has helped me in so many ways!

I keep it handy and use it whenever I feel a headache coming on. I have shared Past Tense with co-workers for back pain and pinched nerve pain. It is wonderful for all sorts of tense and/or achy muscles and joints. One of my co-workers said he’d like to buy it by the 50 gallon drum. -Thauna
-
This blend is smartly bottled in a roller to roll on temples and base of skull for headache pain and tension. It’s worked for me, and my customers say it works for them. Treating pain is one thing for which essential oils are generally very effective. -Jenni
-
Here is an interesting thing – my friend Cindi Byrd used her PAST TENSE ROLL ON for a cold sore and it worked to get rid of it!!! -Tony and Sharyl Yeisley
-
I was completely blown away by how amazing Past Tense is. I get headaches frequently and have always taken Motrin. Past Tense is so amazing I honestly go to that first. my daughter hasn’t been feeling well the last few days. she complained of having a headache so I ran to get my roll-on. she was happy not to have to take a pill & I was happy not to be giving her a pill. this is a must have for every home & medicine cabinet! – Tara
-
So, I just want to give a shout out to Past Tense. A doTERRA roll-on blend that is amazing! I had a headache the other night and honestly, I don’t get many headaches but this one was a bad one. I got out my trusty oils and decided to try the Past Tense. I rolled it on my forehead, tempals (staying out of my eyes!!), and the back of my neck, the headache went away. It was great! The only thing was that 15 minutes later, I could feel the headache coming back. This is exactly when I know I need to use “the power of three”, ha ha ha… I apply the oil three times in one hour, every 20 minutes. If one application doesn’t work the first time to relieve my symptoms, usually this three application process does. Sometimes it takes more or less, but this usually works for me. Anyway, after the second application my headache was gone, never to return. Thank goodness! This also made me realize the reason for my headache. I was getting too wound up that day, too much going on in my head. That night I took a bath with bath salt made with doTERRA oils, that I of course made myself. I love that I can learn to control my stress and mood with using these amazing oils - Natalie

Great Ways to Use DoTerra Deep Blue Blend

DoTerra Deep Blue Blend

Soothing Blend

According to recent studies, more than half of us are sufferers of ongoing discomfort. Deep Blue® is dōTERRA®’s soothing solution to this challenge. Wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, blue chamomile, helichrysum and osmanthus work together to ease achy joints and sore muscles. Its effects are deep and penetrating with sustained results. Once gently rubbed into the area of discomfort, Deep Blue’s cool therapeutic benefit will be felt almost immediately. For topical use only.

According to modern medicine, more than half of us suffer from inflammation — whether chronic or acute.  This inflammation causes pain and discomfort, and is linked to almost every degenerative disease, from heart disease to diabetes to cancer.

But, nature holds within it some of the most functional analgesic compounds known to mankind.  And, unlike the over-the-counter (OTC) analgesics available on the market today, these compounds are not only efficacious, they are safe.

Essential oils, containing many of these compounds, have been blended together by the scientists at dōTERRA into the Deep Blue Blend.  Working collectively, the chemical constituents in these oils produce what can seem like miraculous — and sustained — results, penetrating deep into the body’s tissues to reduce inflammation and provide you with truly amazing relief from inflammation’s pain and discomfort.

There are several powerfully anti-inflammatory oils used in Deep Blue.  In this proprietary aromatherapy blend, these oils are combined so that the anti-inflammatory properties of their chemical constituents work synergistically, to reduce inflammation, ease achy joints and sore muscles and provide you with deep, penetrating relief — that lasts.

One of these oils is wintergreen — only one of several oils studied for its amazing ability to diminish pain and discomfort.  Wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, blue chamomile, helichrysum and osmanthus work collectively to provide you with truly remarkable relief from inflammation and its associated pain.
Apply Deep Blue directly to areas of discomfort.  Its cool, therapeutic benefit will be felt almost immediately.  Deep Blue can be used topically and diffused into the air.

 Apply Deep Blue topically on an injured area to reduce inflammation and bruising.

   Apply Deep Blue topically to sore muscles after exercising

  Rub a drop of Deep Blue on the temples, forehead and back of the neck to relieve a headache.

   Mix Deep Blue with DoTerra’s Fractionated Coconut Oil and massage on location to stop growing pains

   Rub 1-2 drops of Deep Blue on arthritic hands to lessen pain.

Testimonial:

My ballerina daughter Larissa came to me yesterday complaining that she could not turn her head to the right without pain.  She must have slept on it wrong and had a kink in it.  This is another situation where I felt like doTerra essential oils gave me as a mother some tools that I would not have had in the past.  Before my introduction to doTerra I would have had to give her some sympathy for her discomfort and send her on her way.   But, I knew that doTerra’s Deep Blue Essential Oil is formulated for this kind of discomfort.  I mixed a few drops of Deep Blue with a little bit of fractionated coconut oil to dilute it since I was putting it on my daughter.  I then rubbed it into Larissa’s neck where she said it hurt.  Within minutes she didn’t have anymore discomfort in her neck and she went to her ballet class in the afternoon with no problem at all!  I have had the same results on an old injury on my son’s knee.  My brother has used Deep Blue with amazing  results to control the pain of arthritis and many people have used it to help with back pain as well.  What a great tool for every mom to have!

10 Basic Oils Every Home Needs


You might be asking yourself  “Why do I even need essential oils when I can just go to the Doctor?”  The reason is: Essential Oils are a safer, more natural approach to medicine with no side affects.  Eighty percent of the time your illness is a viral infection and there is no “over the counter” medicine to combat a virus, however,  Essential Oils have several studies showing there ability to kill a viral infection.

Every home needs ten basic essential oils. These oils are found in the Family Physician Kit and are available at a retail price of $166.00.  You can also set up your whole sale account for $150 (It’s like having a Costco Card for doTerra) and it comes with this full kit (along with Slim & Sassy ‘Metabolic’ blend)

I use the Family Physician Kit for most of my medicinal needs.  It has completely replaced my medicine cabinet.  Here are a few ways that I have had success in using the oils in this kit:



1. Lavender - It is the most versatile and popular oil. It is great for burns and takes aways pain and blistering fast! It works very well as a sleep aid and it has a very calming effect. It also works as a natural antihistamine and provides relief from insect bites. Rub on your feet each night for relaxation, or headache relief.

2.  Lemon - Use a drop of lemon every day in your water to keep your body acid free (alkaline). Lemon helps clean your lymphatic system.  It is excellent for sore throats– just place a drop on your tongue or gargle with lemon water. You can also use it as a cleaning agent. Lemon oil will clean ninety-nine percent of bacteria.

3.  Peppermint - It has been double-blind studied against Tylenol and was proven to be just as effective in treating headaches.  Peppermint Oil was reported by the Mayo Clinic as being one of the most promising treatments for I.B.S.  It is fantastic for digestive issues and when inhaled it will stimulate the brain to increase alertness.

4.  Melaleuca (Tea Tree Oil) – This is fantastic for acne since most acne medications are antibacterial creams, melaleuca is antibacterial.  It is also great for most skin conditions: general rashes, eczema, psoriasis, fungal infections, and MRSA.  You can rub it on your head to control dandruff and on your chest for coughs.

5.  Deep Blue  -  It reduces inflammations and relieves sore muscles and back aches.  Use this oil on all sport related injuries and will also relieve headaches.

6. Oregano - It is your heaviest fighter oil with several studies proving its ability to kill MRSA (staph infection). It is one of the most important oils to use when fighting any infection. It is a very hot oil and must be diluted with any carrier oil (Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Almond Oil etc) to apply topically.

7. On Guard - This oil helps to strengthen your immune system.  This is great for disinfecting the home via a diffuser or even mix with water to use as a cleaner to wipe down counters.  Rub this on your feet every night for cold prevention and can rub on teeth to help reduce plaque & gum infections.

8.  Breathe - Use this oil from respiratory infections,coughs, or asthma symptoms.  Rub it on your chest to help combat congestion.  Rub on chest and under your nostrils to help with snoring.  Unlike other Vapor Rubs, Breathe will actually assist your body in fighting off the infection.

9.  DigestZen - this blend will work for any digestive disorder: Acid Reflux, heartburn, H.Pylori Bacteria, diarrhea, Constipation, IBS, etc. Rub four drops of DigestZen on your stomach for all the above.  Seventy percent of your immune function is through your GI so if you have a compromised GI you have a compromised immune system. Using DigestZen will help strengthen immune system.

10. Frankincense - this oil contains sesquiterpenes, enabling it to go beyond the blood-brain barrier.  It may help oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands.  Many people belief it helps with anxiety and depression.  Several studies have been done on Frankincense and its ability to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself!   doTERRA Essential Oils work perfectly with the body to support normal functions of the body and dōTERRA products are safe to use on all ages.

All Natural Allergy Support

DoTerra Essential Oil Support for:

Allergies

An allergy is an exaggerated immune response or reaction to substances that are generally not harmful…. just annoying.

Allergies are relatively common. Both genetics and environmental factors play a role.

The immune system normally protects the body against harmful substances, such as bacteria and viruses. It also reacts to foreign substances called allergens, which are generally harmless and in most people do not cause a problem.

But in a person with allergies, the immune response is oversensitive. When it recognizes an allergen, it releases chemicals such as histamines. which fight off the allergen. This causes itchingswelling, mucus production,muscle spasmshivesrashes, and other symptoms, which vary from person to person.

Common allergens include pollen, mold, pet dander, and dust. Food and drug allergies are common. Allergic reactions can also be caused by insect bites, jewelry, cosmetics, spices, and other substances.

Some people have allergy-like reactions to hot or cold temperatures, sunlight, or other environmental triggers. .

A specific allergy is not usually passed down through families (inherited). However, if both your parents have allergies, you are likely to have allergies. The chance is greater if your mother has allergies.

Those with Allergies have noticed:

Breathing problems (coughing, shortness of breath)

Burning, tearing, or itchy eyes

Itching of the nose, mouth, throat, skin, or any other area

Runny nose

Stomach cramps

Coughing

Headache

Hives

Skin rashes

Wheezing

Click Here for information about risk factors & symptoms

I personally get allergy attacks in the spring which result in skin rashes along my abdomen, neck and occasionally my face & legs.  As the season progresses, sneezing, coughing and itchy eyes join in.  I always hated taking over the counter medication because I was always left drowsy or a feeling like my brain was swimming…. so I’m very grateful for this all natural support that has worked wonders for me!!

Personal Testimonies of doTerra Peppermint Oil:

“I put peppermint essential oil on my sick daughter’s feet while she was sleeping.  I had heard it was good for upset stomaches.  I was wishing I had given her some Tylenol or Motrin for her fever.  When she woke up I was going to give her Motrin but she no longer had a fever.  I have since learned that Peppermint is good for reducing fevers and have heard many people say that they use it all the time to reduce fevers.”

 

“My 12 year old son heard me read that you could put it on a shirt for alterness and wanted me to put it on his shirt before he went to school.  He felt like it helped him focus better.”

“My mother-in-law was having a very bad hot flash due to her chemo-therapy, I quickly put some peppermint oil on her forehead and back of the neck…and she was back to normal in2 seconds!”
