All About Peppermint

ALL ABOUT PEPPERMINT

Peppermint essential oil provides a familiar, recognizable scent, but Peppermint is so much more than just a nostalgic, fresh aroma. This oil can be diffused to create a stimulating, focused atmosphere for daily tasks. You can also apply it topically to create a cool, tingling sensation on the skin, which can be very soothing after hard physical activity. We recommend using Peppermint essential oil aromatically or topically anytime you want to add a pleasant variety to your routine!

PRODUCT BACKGROUND

Peppermint is originally from Europe, but 75 percent of the world’s supply is now grown in the United States. To produce one of Young Living’s most popular oils, we look to several farms, including the Young Living Lavender Farm and Distillery in Mona, Utah.

One 15 ml bottle of Peppermint essential oil is created by steam distilling 1 pound of the leaves and flowering tops of the peppermint plant. Peppermint is a key ingredient in PanAway®, Cool Azul® Pain Relief Cream, and Deep Relief™ Roll-On.

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Mentha piperita

BOTANICAL FAMILY: Lamiaceae

REGIONS FOUND: North America, Mediterranean area, Great Britain

PLANT PART USED: Leaves and stems

EXTRACTION METHOD: Steam distilled

YL REGION: The majority of Young Living Peppermint essential oil comes from the U.S.

Peppermint essential oil joined the Young Living family in 1994.

What is Peppermint oil used for?

According to National Center for Complimentary and integrated Health, peppermint is used as a dietary supplement for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), other digestive problems, the common cold, headaches, and other conditions. Peppermint oil is also used topically (applied to the skin) for headache, muscle aches, itching, and other problems.

Peppermint oil has been studied most extensively for IBS. Results from several studies indicate that peppermint oil in enteric-coated capsules may improve IBS symptoms.

A few studies have indicated that peppermint oil, in combination with caraway oil, may help relieve indigestion, but this evidence is preliminary and the product that was tested is not available in the United States.

Peppermint oil has been used topically for tension headaches and a limited amount of evidence suggests that it might be helpful for this purpose.

There’s not enough evidence to allow any conclusions to be reached about whether peppermint oil is helpful for nausea, the common cold, or other conditions.

Mint has been used for health purposes for several thousand years. It is mentioned in records from ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. However, peppermint was not recognized as a distinct kind of mint until the 1700s.

20 fresh uses for Peppermint

1. Chill out after a long day. Dilute 1 drop of Peppermint with 4 drops of V-6™ or another carrier oil; then rub on the temples, forehead, and back of the neck. Be careful to avoid your eyes! You’ll feel a soothing, cooling sensation, courtesy of the constituents menthol and menthyl acetate.

YL tip: Can you put Peppermint oil directly on the skin?

Peppermint is a “hot” oil, which means it creates a warming sensation on the skin when it’s applied undiluted. We recommend starting out using Peppermint diluted 1:4 with a carrier oil. If you want to use it undiluted, do a patch test of 1 drop to see how it feels on your skin. If you experience a reaction to the oil, dilute the oil with a 1:4 ratio of carrier oil and try another patch test.

2. Soothe sun-kissed skin. Cool skin after a day in the sun by adding a few drops each of Peppermint and Lavender to aloe vera gel.

3. Freshen carpets. Make a carpet powder with 1 cup of baking soda and 20-30 drops of essential oil. We love the purifying scent of Kunzea with Peppermint’s bright aroma.

4. Add Cool Azul™ to your cool-down. Peppermint is a main ingredient in the Cool Azul line of products! Massage tired muscles with Cool Azul Sports Gel after a tough workout.

5. Find your focus. Fill your office or study space with energizing aromas by diffusing this blend when it’s time to buckle down on a project.

6. Refresh while you rehydrate. Add a few drops of Peppermint Vitality™ to your water bottle for an extra refreshing zing. We recommend 1-2 drops for every 16 ounces of water.

YL tip: Can you drink Peppermint oil in your water?

Peppermint Vitality™ is labeled for internal use, so it is a great addition to your daily water intake.

7. Sweeten your breath. Put a drop of Peppermint Vitality™ on your tongue to freshen your breath and get rid of any trace of those garlic-flavored kale chips you ate with lunch!

8. Find balance. Diffuse this grounding blend whenever your mind needs clarity, such as during moments of spiritual study or meditation.

9. Stimulate your scalp. Add 3 drops of Peppermint to your shampoo in the morning and massage into your scalp for 2 minutes for a brisk way to start the day.

10. Remix your favorite recipes. Use Peppermint Vitality™to add a refreshing twist to a pitcher of lemonade.

YL tip: Check out our recipe ideas for more ways to use this fresh-tasting oil!

11. Soak in the sweet aroma. Add 5 drops of Peppermint directly to bathwater and enjoy an invigorating soak.

12. Support digestion. Add a drop or two of Peppermint Vitality™ to a mug of hot tea to help with gastrointestinal discomfort. Peppermint Vitality can support normal digestion and reduce feelings of discomfort after large meals.*

13. Take it on the go. Pack Deep Relief™ Roll-On in your purse for some simple self-care on the go. Our pal Peppermint is the main ingredient and contributes to the cooling sensation!

14. Create a cooling chest rub. Mix a drop of Peppermint with a small amount of V-6 and rub it onto your chest for a cooling sensation and fresh fragrance.

15. Cool off on a hot day. When the temperature’s climbing and you feel like melted ice cream on a hot sidewalk, add two drops of Peppermint to a cold, damp washcloth. It’s perfect for the back of your neck, your forehead, or your chest.

16. Refresh musty rooms. Invite a fresh aroma into your home with a breezy diffuser blend.

17. Turn sweets into something special. Infuse your baked goods with drop of Peppermint Vitality™!

18. Freshen funky workout gear. Smelly gym bag or stinky shoes? Mix 2 ounces of water and 6 drops of Peppermint in a spray bottle to freshen it up! Add Purification® or Lemon for an extra boost of freshness.

19. Shake up your morning shower. Put 2 drops of Peppermint and 2 drops of Eucalyptus Radiata on a washcloth and put it on the shower floor just out of the direct stream of water. The steam will surround you with an invigorating aroma!

20. Breathe in the aroma straight from the bottle. Whatever less-than-amazing smells you’re faced with, just open your trusty bottle of Peppermint and take a deep breath. The chilly aroma will chase away almost any unpleasant scent.

My Oily Anniversary

My social media reminded me October is my oily anniversary, so I want to recap how I started, why and what these past 4 years gave me.

2015, my son was in kindergarten, the last year and I was just bracing myself for Fall/Winter season. This is always the most dreadful time for all parents. The sniffles, constantly running nose, cough and flu. Even if your kid is healthy, he is bound to catch something from other kids in his class. The previous two years in kindy he had it all and I was looking for advice and possible solutions

My friend just started with Young Living and when she heard me complaining, she recommended Thieves Blend to help. She is somebody I really trust so I gave it a try and signed up with Young Living. At the time, the Premium Starter Kit in Japan was different and didn’t have the oils I wanted so I opted for Basic Starter Kit and oils of my choice. When the package arrived, I immediately opened Lavender and sniffed it…. it was love at first sight. I put the roller fitment on the bottle and carried the bottle on me 24/7. It’s helped me relax, feel better, it helped me ease tension and I just loved it. I wanted to bath in it. It was like magic. That little purple bottle changed my life.

I also started to use Thieves Blend on my son daily to help boost his immunity. I made a roller and used it on the soles of his feet and along his spine in the evening. He loved this little TLC ritual we created and I was happy for the benefits. That last year of kindy, David didn’t miss a day, stayed healthy and strong.

Little by little, I started to learn more about the benefits of those little bottles and got more and more intrigued. I used it on my husband before bedtime and also during massage, to help him relax. He still thought I was bit crazy but enjoyed the massages nonetheless.

And soon, without even realizing how, my friends started to ask me about the oils and soon I had few members under and my monthly orders were basically covered. Wow, how did that happen? I was just sharing my oily love! Being rewarded for doing something I really enjoyed was really amazing. The fact I helped my friends in the process was like a cherry on a cake. I wanted to know more, do more.

I started to study about Aromatherapy and Naturopathy, as I wanted to be able to understand about the oils and our bodies. And I started to hold classes and teach others how they can use these little bottles of magic for their own benefits. And now I have beautiful group of friends, our own Oily Tribe, that supports me, helps me and stands by me. It’s very special bond indeed.

Young Living changed my life. It made me more aware of what I use on my body and for my family. I understand more how to use the gifts of nature instead of reaching for store bought products, that are loaded with toxic ingredients. I have not been in drugstore to buy cosmetics for years. I make it myself. I ditched and switched toxic products from our entire home little by little and now I have the best, yet natural products only.

Our family the stronger and healthier, we truly enjoy the benefits of natural products. And omg they smell great! I always get complimented for the beautiful smell.

So I want to give back this month, to everybody who will sign up through my link and orders either the Premium Starter Kit or other Starter kita with min of 100 PV order, I will be giving out beautiful oily gifts. I have a basket full of goodies ready for new members.

This give away also applies to anybody who reactivates their account or signs up for Essential Rewards order with 100 PV min order.

Sharing is Caring… and earning a paycheck too!

Everybody knows I love Young Living products and company. The people I have met during my 3 years with Young Living are amazing, loving and supportive. Also super motivated.

Behind the great smelling, healthy lifestyle is also a paycheck. And very nice one for that matter. How?

Sharing your oily love pays. You earn commission on every Premium Starter skit (approx 50$) plus 25% Fast Start Bonus the first three months of your downline, then continue earning 8,5 and 4% respectively. There is many more other bonuses involved, motivating you and your friends to share. You can literally start your own business with approx 167$!!!

Why is it so easy to share about Young Living?

Well, YL has 650 products to date, not only Essential oils, but Beauty and Personal Care Line, Pet Friendly Products, Seedlings – Baby Line loves by Mommas around the world, , Savvy Minerals make up line, that is promoted by many celebrities and make up artists, accessories, supplements, cleaning line, food and other products, making it easy to share among women and men around the world. Yes, around the world! Young Living is open in most countries and new markets are opening every year! So you are not limited to share among your family and neighbors, the world is your playground! Literally💜.

Do I need to keep stock at home?

Absolutely not. You don’t keep stock at home, you simply share what you use and love and people can easily create their own members account and order themselves. The products will be delivered straight to their home. Simple and easy. You connect people with our company and then get paid!

Do I have to order monthly?

No! You have obligation at all to make monthly orders. Naturally, if you join our monthly order system called Essential Rewards, you get rewarded with free gifts and points. But you keep your membership even if you do not want to order monthly and you can just order anytime you want. To keep your account active, you need to order 50 PV(about 50 $) a year.

However if you start sharing with your friends, to earn a paycheck, you need to place 50 PV order that month to be eligible for the Fast Start and Premium Starter Kit bonus. Since the bonus is 50$ and 50 PV order cost about 50$, sherif with just one person gets you your order free! Down the line, to receive more and more bonuses, the minimum requirement is 100 PV. By then you already have bunch of people in your downline and your order is easily paid for.

How do I learn how to share?

Don’t worry. We have all the materials to help you learn and share. I will personally send you scripts and links so you can literally just read that script or forward it to people who are interested. I will help you every step of the way, help you with classes, share all I know. And because it’s so easy, our members can do exactly the same. Remember, it’s not only whom you know, but whom your friends know!

Here you can see a chart of Young Living income per month

Yes, you see right. Per month! You can easily do this from the comfort of your home, from your couch, while your kids sleep. That’s exactly how I do it 90% of the time. I hold few classes a month, but that’s because I love it and I love connecting with people face to face.

How will I organize classes?

Once again, I will help you with easy instructions, scripts, visuals. Luckily, in this world it’s easy to connect with me over video chat and discuss what you need to know first. I also have an entire manual for you, that is easy to follow. You will be surprised. It’s a no brainer.

And if you do not want to hold classes, you don’t have to. You just share on Social media. I didn’t have any class for the first 6-8 months. I simply posted on my Facebook what I’m using and why and people started connecting and asking why and how can I get this! Yes, if you have amazing products, it’s super easy.

There are many perks of doing Young Living as a business besides a paycheck. Paid for retreats and trips around the world to celebrate you and your work is just one of them. I was blessed to be on one like that this February in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Trip for two paid by Young Living! I kid you not.

But it’s not just the paycheck and the great awards. It’s the meaningful work, knowing you’re helping others live healthier life and earn paycheck.

Because good leader doesn’t create followers, good leader creates more leaders!

So let me be your leader and let me help you to be a leader!

It’s Lip Balm Time Of The Year

With fall comes the crisp air, wind and cracked, dry lips. We all love having soft lips though, right? So we run to first drugstore to buy lip balm. Some are better than others but the best is the one you make yourself. Why?

Many store bought lip balms contain irritants and basically the more we put on, the less luscious our lips feel. Some of these ingredients can also cause inflammation and dehydration of the lips. We definitely do not want that.

So best to make it yourself so you know what you put in. For added flavor and benefits, I add Essential oils. For my newest batch of lip balms, I used Spearmint Essential oil. I love the smell, the taste and how it naturally plumps the lips. Before, I used Orange and Frankincense, both were yummy. It is really up to you what oil you use.

I use beeswax in my recipe so I am well aware it is not vegan, I would love to hear your tried vegan recipe too! Please do share with me.

Here is my recipe

Ingredients

1.5 tbsp of Beeswax

2 tbsp of organic coconut oil

2 tbsp of coconut butter

15 drops of Spearmint Essential oil

This will make about 9 or 10 lip balms.

Method

First of all, prepare your lip balm containers next to your stove. On a double boiler, start melting the beeswax.

It takes the longest. Once almost melted, add the coconut oil and cocoa butter and melt completely.

Remove from heat and quickly add the essential oils, mix together and pour into the containers. You really need to act quickly as the lip balms start to set.

I like using glass measure cup in the double boiler, because it’s easy to pour from it. This is very simple, failproof recipe. Even my 9 yo son was able to make it by himself! So it gives you great activity with kids. They will love making their own lip balm and will be more willing to use it. Or gift it to family and friends!

You know I love using Young Living Essential oils only. I have my reasons why I only trust this company. If you would love e to learn more, you can get in touch with me through this page and I’ll be very happy to explain.

If you want to order some Young Living Essential oils, you can either click Here and create your own account or send me a Message and I’ll help you get you the best deal on your oils.

I would love to hear from you, how you love the lip balms and if you have any modifications to the recipe.
