Perfect Blend Of: Peppermint & Lavender
Ingredients: Organic Therapeutic Pure Uncut Essential Oils
This oil is most commonly known for it’s ability to calm and relax, but there is so much more to lavender. It acts as an analgesic, anti-histamine, antiseptic, and it is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, just to name a few of it’s properties.
How we use Lavender
Lavender is amazing for bug bites, bee stings, scarring and burns. It can be applied directly on the skin, and will take the sting/burn away almost instantly. (Every body is different and will respond differently to essential oils). It is used to calm and help little ones fall asleep at night, just a drop or two on the corner of their pillow. In combination with lemon and peppermint, lavender has helped alleviate allergy symptoms (seasonal/pets).
Another commonly used oil, peppermint is analgesic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, invigorating and more…
How we use Peppermint
For an upset stomach, gas, bloating – really for any digestive issue – we rub a couple of drops directly on the the area, and feel it working in about 10-15 seconds. You could also add a drop to a large glass of water and drink it. Just a small amount will do – one drop of peppermint oil has the same potency as 28 cups of peppermint tea! Ease headaches – a little on the temples, forehead, back of the neck or wherever the pain is. It will lower the body temperature quickly which makes it ideal for fevers – just rub on the spine and bottoms of the feet as often as you need to- no side effects and no need to wait 4 hours for the next dose. It is very soothing mixed with lavender and water in a spray bottle to relieve a sunburn, or on it’s own to cool you off on a hot day. Its also used it for sore muscles and pain- just rub it on topically. Another benefit of peppermint is that it helps with focus and alertness. I’ve used it while driving to keep me awake – just inhale straight from the bottle, or rub it on the back of the neck and temples.
