Today let’s chat about another oil that I always have on stock. This one is used in so many different ways, it’s crazy. Make sure to click on each of the photos below to read more about this useful oil.
Peppermint is an oil that will intensify other oils. It absorbs quickly & you can literally feel it. It’s known to help sore/achy muscles/joints, itching, head tension, congestion, increases blood flow & promotes hair growth when used topically. It’s also cooling, I use my breath spray as a cooling spray (multifunctional) in the humid Florida summer.
Peppermint is an ingredient in most respiratory blends & a great oil to have on hand for the icky feels. Inhaling peppermint can reduce stress & promotes metal clarity. I love diffusing peppermint at work to keep me alert, plus it cleanses the air. I add a few drops to my trash can & drains as needed & it’s great to keep the bugs & rodents away (yes please).
Internally, peppermint is great for our digestive system. I make a capsule with Digize & peppermint for uneasy tummies (I’ll make a post on this). It’s a yummy flavoring for desserts & teas (use a toothpick amount first). And I make my own breath spray & as mentioned above, & use it topically too.
Have you ever read the ingredients on a tube of toothpaste? It’s quite disturbing actually. Why would it say call poison control if swallowed? I mean it literally goes in our mouth 🤦🏻♀️ Luckily, I’ve found a great alternative!! 🤗 This is one of my all time favorite ditch & switches I’ve done. And I ALWAYS have a backup in stock. Below is a comparison between the different toothpastes available so you can find which one works best for you. My favorite is the whitening 😉✌🏼
While we’re here, let’s chat about your toothbrush. I hate plastic & I try to minimize the plastic that we have in our home, although, it is inevitable. But this small switch can make a huge difference. I watched this video years ago & decided I would never buy a plastic toothpaste ever again. We’ve been using bamboo toothbrushes for years & I love it. They feel the same (except not plastic), I get 10+ at a time so I always have backup & I can toss them in the compost bin when I’m done. Although sometimes I’m too lazy and chuck it anyway. But hey it’s still better than plastic! But my question is, if it’s cheaper, easier, better for the environment, etc, etc. why are we still using plastic??!! Know better, do better.
