This roundup is all about Peppermint Essential Oil
. I recently started creating roundups that used the same oil rather than a style of DIY. Why? I was getting into the bad habit of buying an Essential oil for the purpose of one recipe but then being stuck with 25mls of extra oil essential oil. Which as you may know would be a very expensive project.
So let’s take a moment to talk about Peppermint Essential oit. Why is it good? How can you use it?
Peppermint essential oil can be extracted from the leaves of the peppermint plant and is used for a variety of purposes.
When it is applied to the skin, peppermint essential oil has a mild cooling and soothing feeling. It is also a natural antibacterial and antimicrobial cleanser.
Peppermint oil is promoted for topical use (applied to the skin) for problems like headaches, muscle aches, joint pain, and itching. In aromatherapy, peppermint oil is promoted for treating coughs and colds, reducing pain, improving mental function, and reducing stress. I keep a small roller of peppermint in my handbag and have used it for nausea, travel sickness, headaches, hayfever, and even used it to freshen my breath with a dab onto my tongue.
So that is a whole lot of goodness in one bottle of Peppermint oil right?
So this list of over 30 projects and recipes all use peppermint oil. I will continue to add more tutorials as I make them or come across them, so it is just 30 for now, but I will be updating it, so make sure you pop back and check it out.
