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.

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.

To sign up for your wholesale membership, follow this Link and choose your starter kit and the products you love. Make sure you send me a message so I can send you your oily gifts!

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.

As you already know, I am Young Living Distributor and Healthy Lifestyle Educator. I am available for One on One consultations in person or over the phone, as well as group classes. Please get in touch with me Here so we can discuss your needs.

Eye on Supplements – Life9 Probiotics

Life9 is superb Probiotic Supplement. I first started to take it few years ago when I had digestive issues. It soon improved and I could see my skin getting better as well as my bloating going down. My favorite company, when it comes to wellness and health, Young Living, has several amazing supplements and I want to shed light on them one by one.

Why should we take probiotics?

1/ Helps maintain healthy microbiome – in today’s diet, there is too much sugar and other unhealthy ingredients and our gut health suffers

2/ Supports immunity – can you believe that 80% of your immunity lies in your gut?

3/ Supports nutrients absorption. No matter how healthy you might eat, if your body cannot absorb the nutrients, it goes away too quickly.

4/ Maintains your mood – happy gut, happy brain! Yes it’s true!

5/ Supports Healthy Weight Management

6/ Freshens Breath – healthy Microbiome also means better breath

7/ Reduces fatigue – fatigue is often sign of bad digestion.

8/ improves your skin – our skin really shows the state of our guts. Bad digestion shows up quickly with breakouts. Maintaining healthy gut means maintaining healthy skin

So what solution does Young Living Offer? LIFE 9!

Life 9 is a proprietary combination of 9 friendly bacteria strains that are essential to support a healthy system.

Life 5 has been a great product that is very beneficial, so we wanted to create an even more robust formula that will better withstand shipping to international markets. Life 9 features 17 billion live cultures representing 9 different bacteria strains.

Includes 9 bacteria strains to support a healthy system:

1 Lactobacillus acidophilus

2 Bifidobacterium lactis

4 Lactobacillus rhamnosus

5 Lactobacillus salivarius

6 Streptococcus thermophilus

7 Bifidobacterium breve

8 Bifidobacterium bifidum
