Peppermint Essential Oil Review + Giveaway



I have seen many recipes that call for different kinds of oils, but I live in a small town and I have a hard time finding them. Recently, I tried out the Seaweed (Kelp) Powder, which I used as a scrub and as a facial mask. Let me just say that you do need some sort of oil as the seaweed odor is a bit too strong for me. One of the recipes I found for a facial mask calls for Peppermint Oil.

What exactly is Peppermint Oil

Well, it is derived from the peppermint plant. Normally, it is used to flavor drinks and foods. It can also be used as a supplement or as a skin cream or an ointment. The supplements can help with vomiting (including morning sickness), cramps, diarrhea, colds, sinuses and menstrual problems. The oil version is known to help with irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion and heartburn. The oil can also be applied to the skin to help with headaches, muscle/nerve pain, toothaches, rashes and viral infections.

I received a 4 fl oz bottle of La Lune Naturals Peppermint Oil 100% Pure last week. The oil can cure headaches and it can be used with a vaporizer to get rid of a cold. It can also be used to repel ants, mice and spiders away from your house. There are no additives in this oil.

The ingredients include:

Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha Arvenisis)
Therapeutic Grade
100% Steam Distilled Oil

I mixed a tablespoon of the seaweed powder and three tablespoons of hot water in a bowl until it was smooth. I put in two drops of the Peppermint Oil and I stirred it together. Then I put the mixture on my face and neck for twenty minutes. In less than a minute, my face started to feel cool and it continued this way for the entire time I had it on. The Peppermint Oil sort of vibrated the seaweed mixture and it let my face and neck to feel more relaxed. Yesterday, I had a sinus headache, so I rubbed a drop of the Peppermint Oil ontto my forehead and my headache was gone within ten minutes. Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the Peppermint Oil and I recommend it to others.

You can purchase the Peppermint Oil on Amazon.com.
