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.

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 Healthy Friday Morning

My biggest food struggle is breakfast. I’m Czech, I grew up on bread rolls and ham for breakfast most of my life. I love bread rolls but that’s where part of my belly fat comes from 😹🤪.

Recently I’m really trying to be healthier, eat healthier. Healthy, filling breakfast is a part of it but I mostly end up with a bowl of rice topped with poached egg, steamed Okra and Kimchi. I used to have tofu with it, but trying to stay away from soy products for now due to my thyroid issues.

Yesterday, one of my friends asked about our favorite healthy snack/dessert and I remembered my Chia Pudding Recipe! Oh I miss it so much! It’s not only great as healthy dessert, it makes for great breakfast too!

Here is a link to my YouTube Video how I made this Chia Pudding It’s really delicious

Chia Seeds need time to soak so best of you can pre soak them the night before. If not, let’s hope you have at least an hour in the morning. Luckily I do, I actually prefer to wait an hour with my food after I take my morning capsule with Endoflex Vitality, so I started so soak my Chia seeds.

What you need

4 tbs of Organic Chia Seeds,

100 ml of Almond or Coconut milk

30 ml of NingXia Red

1 tbs of Pumpkin Seeds

1 tbs of Sunflower Seeds

1 banana

2 drops of Citrus Fresh

First of all, you soak your Chia Seeds with the liquids and let it sit for a while. Best is over night but an hour gives you good texture too.

Right before serving, you add your pumpkin and sun flower seeds or any seeds/nuts of your liking, half of the banana and 2 drops of Citrus Fresh Essential Oil for extra flavor and mix well. Serve with the rest of the banana on top.

You can actually make this with any fruits of your liking, I made it with Pineapple before and it was so delicious!

Chia Seeds are very good for you. They are great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants and provide us with fiber, iron and calcium. They help to raise our “good” cholesterol and protect our heart.

A one-ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (1):

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDI.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDI.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI.
  • They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.

This small amount supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate.

Why add 30 ml of NingXia Red? NingXia Red is my favorite part of my morning routine. It is so insanely good for our bodies! I keep telling everyone to drink it religiously. Those who listen, they flourish and see the amazing benefits.

But besides all these benefits, it’s also really delicious, full of berry flavor and that is something I really want from my food. Great flavors.

And why Citrus Fresh? You know I love Young Living Essential oils and I am very loyal to them. Because to be honest, if I’m adding oils to my food, I want to know where they are coming from and that they are pure. And only Young Living can guarantee it.

Citrus Fresh is fantastic blend of Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Mandarin and Grapefruit with a hint of Spearmint, so you can imagine the burst of flavor in every single drop. It is also very rich in d-limonene, very powerful antioxidant. So it makes perfect addition to my morning bowl of goodness.

Lustrous Hair of Mine…

I always had very long hair, ever since I remember. Only in Grade 2 my parents chopped it off, so I have my class picture with super short hair.

Naturally, when I came to my teenage years, I didn’t appreciate having waist long, thick hair and I cut it several times, then I permed it and colored it over and over. My hair got weaker and weaker and is now probably on half the strength and number as it was 20 years ago. Go figure.

Then came pregnancy, the dreaded time for woman’s hair (not only hair). Really wish I knew about essential oils back then. But I didn’t so I chopped my hair short, trying to ease the damage and hair loss. It was heart breaking.

Also, the shorter my hair goes, the curlier it goes. So with my long bob now, I am like a Bon Jovi double from the 80ties. I kid you not. If I want smooth texture, I have to blow dry or iron my hair. That causes more damage so I try to avoid it and rock my messy curls

I have learned one thing. Oil up! Yes, we have amazing oils that help us with anything and everything and hair is not an exception. In the Japanese Starter Kit, there is Lavender and Rosemary and I always recommend to add Cedarwood to the first order, so my new member can start making her hair treatments right away.

Why? Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood is my Holy Trinity for all things hair.

Lavender Essential oil can speed up hair growth.  Knowing that lavender oil has properties that can generate the growth of cells and reduce stress, researchers on one study found that this oil was able to generate faster hair growth. It also has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, which can improve scalp health.

Rosemary essential oil helps to improve both hair thickness and hair growth. It has the ability to improve cellular generation.

Cedarwood essential oil is thought to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss by balancing the oil-producing glands in the scalp. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can treat different conditions that may contribute to dandruff or hair loss. Included in a mixture with lavender and rosemary, cedarwood extract was also found to help to reduce hair loss in those with alopecia.

During summer, I like to add Peppermint and for my friends who just had baby, I include Clary Sage in this mix.

Here is my recipe for great and highly effective hair mask

Ingredients

10 drops of Lavender Essential oil

10 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil

10 drops of Cedarwood

30 ml of Castor oil

60 ml of Hemp oil (can be Coconut oil too)

One 100 ml pump container

Method

First mix the essential oils in the container and let sit for few hours together, so the oils can synergy together. Then add Castor oil and hemp oil and swirl well, so it all mixes properly. Do not shake it, it would oxidize the oils and you don’t want that.

About 30 min before you will be washing your hair, spray the mixture on your roots and massage well into the scalp. The mixture is thick, thanks to the Castor oil, so be generous with it and spray it all over your head. Leave on for at least min. You can leave it on longer

Then wash it off with Shampoo as you’re used to. You can also use my Shampoo bar Recipe that is fantastic and has same essential oils to support beautiful hair.

What’s the best about this Hair treatment is that it contains zero toxic chemicals, just pure goodness. And if you need longer lashes, you can put some of this mixture into an empty mascara container and use it as you Eyelash Serum!

If you do not want a Mask, but a spray that you can use every day, make our Mermaid Hair Spray

How?

Mermaid Hair Spray

30 drops of Lavender

30 drops of Cedarwood

30 drops of Rosemary

1/4 of the container to be filled with Witch Hazel

Fill rest with distilled water

I use 200 ml Sprayer bottle

You can use this spray daily to boost your hair growth. It’s great. Switch is up by adding Peppermint, Clary Sage or Idaho Blue Spruce (or any of the woodsy pine tree oils)

If you know me, you know I only use Young Living Essential oils. Why? Because I simply believe our company is the best. As the only company, Young Living offers Seed to Seal Guarantee and I trust their oils 100% to be therapeutic and unadulterated

Shampoo Bars On My Mind

Shampoo Bars are super popular these days. Why? Mostly because if you use the bars, you avoid plastic bottles. Zero waste. Which is awesome and very necessary.

I’m not an expert in making soaps of any kind and wanted some easy recipe without using lye that will still be efficient. And as you know me, I wanted something that will not only do the job, but benefit my hair and scalp.

So I decided to use Melt&Pour Soap Base. It’s easy to use and quite inexpensive (the one I bought is 1850¥ for 1 kg and that makes a lots of soap bars). In addition to that, you need Cocoa Butter (optional), Castor oil, Rosemary Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil and Cedarwood Essential oil. There are some optional ingredients if you want some texture, like dried herbs, baking soda if you have oily hair, cocoa or ground coffee beans for brunettes, different clays for scalp health or salts. As I was making the soap for many friends, I only added Essential oils, because I didn’t want to limit anybody. But my next batch will have cocoa and baking soda in it as I love it for my hair. I also have some special Russian clay my friend gave me, so that might be cool to try. I’m so excited to try new types!

You can decide if you want regular soap bars or smaller shapes. I love the smaller ones, because they are super portable (you can take it with you for a weekend away, camping etc) but also don’t have to worry it will melt in your shower. But I also made cute 8 cm teddy bear bars for kids. My favorite mold is silicone mold for chocolate or ice cubes. Each mini bar then lasts for about 4 washes. Perfect.

The ingredients I used :

0.4 kg of Organic Pour&Melt Soap Base

2 tsp of Castor oil

1 tsp of Cocoa Butter

10 drops of each essential oil

Method:

Prepare your desired containers. Spray it with alcohol and wipe.

In a double boiler, melt the soap base, add the Mango butter and Castor oil and combine well. If you’re adding baking soda, cocoa or other ingredients, add it too and make sure it combines really well. Take it off the heat and mix in the Essential oils. Do not boil it with the oils in as the oils would loose it’s therapeutic value. And we definitely want that.

Once your oils are in, just simply pour in your containers and let cool and harden. I mostly leave it at least over night, to make sure they are solid. Then transfer into airtight glass container and keep in your bathroom or wherever you want.

When using these shampoo bars, make sure you get your hair really wet. Then hold in bar in your hand and rub it on your scalp and into your hair. That will release the soap and it will start foam a bit. If need be, you can spray some more water onto your hair to help the shampoo clean your hair. Massage your scalp well. Then wash off.

Now remember this is natural soap so it doesn’t foam like regular shampoo. Regular Shampoos, Body soaps, even toothpastes contain SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) that make your products to foam. However, it is quite harmful and toxic ingredient so I avoid it in my products. Hence less foam, more goodness. No harm to our system.

What are the reasons behind using Essential oils in your shampoo? Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood are my Holy Trinity when it comes to all things hair. These three oils help speed up hair growth, aid in healthy scalp and beautiful thick hair. These oils are very supportive when fighting hair loss so I include them in all my hair care. Sometimes I also like to add Clary Sage and then Peppermint in the summer for cooling, refreshing feeling.

If you know me, you know I only use Young Living Essential oils. Why? Because I simply believe our company is the best. As the only company, Young Living offers Seed to Seal Guarantee and I trust their oils 100% to be therapeutic and unadulterated
