Young Living with Peppermint

Peppermint oil has been used in healing remedies since 1500 BC. It has been used in Greek and Roman mythology and used throughout cultures throughout the world.
Most people know that you should drink peppermint tea when your stomach doesn’t feel well. And I think most of us know that many topical analgesics like Tiger Balm smell of peppermint, not to mention the respiratory benefits from Vick’s Vapor rub and the like. It doesn’t take a scientist to tell you that peppermint is great for your respiratory system–you just have to pay a visit to the Celestial Seasonings factory in Boulder and spend a minute in the famous peppermint room!
A short list of what peppermint is good for:
  • Relieving symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Heartburn
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Congestion
  • Menstural problems
  • Liver / Gallbladder problems
WebMD has a whole list of ailments peppermint oil can help. It also lists some of the side effects, including burning on the skin. Peppermint oil is quite powerful, so be sure to use it with a carrier oil (jojoba oil, avocado oil, etc.) when applying to your skin, and make sure you don’t get it too close to your eyes. You can also use it as a dietary supplement, but make sure it won’t interfere with any current medications you are taking.
We have a recipe on our Pinterest where you can use peppermint oil for a yummy, chocolatey, healthy treat!

Young Living with… Aroma Siez

I find myself using Aroma Siez a lot lately. It is amazing for muscle cramps and soreness! The mixture of basil, marjoram, cypress, lavender, and peppermint combines to create a nice almost sweet smell.
Basil is an anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic, which is great for muscle tension or head aches. Marjoram is another antispasmodic and it’s amazing for sore muscles, sprains, or headaches. Cypress relieves muscle cramps and improves overall circulation and may improve respiratory problems. Peppermint is the most commonly know topical analgesic, which helps alleviate pain and is amazing for headaches. Lavender is the balancing oil that brings this blend to a comforting, muscle balancing blend.
This combination helps to eliminate muscle spasms and tension. I’ve used it on acute injuries, chronic tension, and muscle soreness. It’s good for just after a work out in a bath or applying directly to your most sore muscles. It can also help with arthritis pain and most headaches.
