Pepperminty Freshness


Oh how I love peppermint. When I started my oil journey I was nursing and this one was on the no-no list because it could cause a decrease in supply. That cut quite a few of the blends out as well. You wouldn’t believe how many blends have peppermint in them. Sigh.

But at the beginning of this year I had to stop nursing quickly for a trip out of town for work. After the initial sadness of having to cut that bonding off sooner than I wanted I now realized peppermint to the rescue! And let me tell you, it was heaven sent. It helped with the process of drying up. Oh it isn’t a pretty process, but I survived.

So . . . besides that. . . peppermint is amazing for a quick pick-me-up throughout the day, relieving a headache, soothing a queasy tummy, cooling heartburn and easing muscle ache. My newest use is diffusing peppermint, lavender, and rosemary during the workday. I pop my USB diffuser in around 3 pm and then there is no need for a late cup of coffee or a sugar run to get me to the end of the day.
