Blá organic-healthy-week-moment: secrets of the peppermint oil for you xuxu!

Peppermint was widely used by the ancient Greeks and Romans, and may have been cultivated by the Egyptians. The term "mint" is from the Greek Mintha, a mythological nymph transformed into a plant by the goddess Persephone after she learned of her husband Pluto's love for her




Peppermint oil uses are quite vast!it has been known to help digestive problems, respiratory problems, headaches, nausea and fever. Besides that the essential oil has several characteristics that contribute to its ability to assist in beauty management, especially skin care.

How to use it:

For Indigestion:


Massage several drops on your abdomen, place a drop on wrists, or inhale to soothe motion sickness or general nausea.
Drinking mint tea has long been the antidote to an upset stomach.
Inhaling peppermint oil is also said to help curb the appetite by triggering a sense of fullness.

Pour boiling water into a metal or glass bowl, and add a few drops of essential oil (eucalypus and rosemary are good combinations with peppermint). Drape a towel over your head and position your face 10-12 inches above the bowl and breathe in the steam.


Headache: 


With a small amount of almond or other carrier oil and a drop of peppermint oil, rub on your temples, forehead, over the sinuses (avoid contact with eyes), and on the back of the neck to help soothe headache and pressure.

Peppermint Oil For Weight Loss
A recent study by Dr. Bryan Raudenbush clearly identifies the power of peppermint oil for reducing hunger, curbing cravings and aiding weight loss.
Dr. Raudenbush’s study measured food consumption for participants exposed to peppermint oil versus a control group not exposed to the oil.
The results revealed that those exposed consumed close to 3,000 calories fewer from saturated fat and sugar each week. This amounted to 23% fewer calories based on an 1,800 calorie daily diet for 7 days.
Peppermint oil can act like a miracle weight loss treatment, but it’s important to use true organic peppermint grown without chemical fertilizers and extracted by steam distillation.

Hope U all enjoyed!
