Did you think peppermint was just for candy canes?
While it does taste good in candy and baked goods and is also delicious in tea, peppermint has historically been used as a medicine. For that reason, I always keep a bottle handy.
Living at the beach, mosquito bites are plentiful during the summer. I used a lot of peppermint oil for itchy bites. It smells wonderful, and is a strong tool for respiratory issues during cold and flu season. It’s one of the more inexpensive essential oils (there are a few that can be quite pricey) and is easy to use once you understand how and when to use it.
Take a look at my video below for three ways to use peppermint for health and healing.
