Daughter made some peppermint brownies for Christmas They are awesome! I first had a taste of the brownies when a local group of doTerra users did a presentation on what they learned at the convention. The brownies were very yummy. Daughter made a batch for Thanksgiving with 5 drops of peppermint. This time she put in 7 drops. They are just right!

Daughter also made some gel candles with peppermint oil. Smells great!

I learned that if you are dehydrated you can drink water with peppermint and lemon.

Oils are amazing!!

Violet,

Thanks for the tip about putting it your water bottle to suppress your appetite. I will definitely try it!

I use peppermint oil for a couple things. Headaches are a rather common thing for me so I did some research and found that peppermint supposedly helps with them. I started taking a drop of oil and rubbing it into my temples as soon as I felt a headache coming on and suprisingly the headache didn't get any worse and went away within a half an hour (they usually turn into migraines)!

The other way I use it now is to place one drop into a bottle of water and sip at it between meals. Studies on hunger suppressants have shown that peppermint oil (and only the oil) is a very affective way to suppress your appetite. I have been using the oil in this way for about a week now and I don't get hungry between meals at all. It also leaves my mouth and breath feeling very fresh! emoticon

Linden, using peppermint in the diffuser should help keep air born infection out of the office too. I am sure it helps everyone.

I use peppermint in my diffuser in my office at work. It really helps me stay alert and focused for my work day. People come in and comment on it all the time!

A friend has a little one about a year old that is teething. She was wanting me to take her to a store to get baby aspirin. I had given her a small amount of Peppermint Oil before to put on the child's shirt for him to breath the vapors. It helped clear up the congestion.

This time I suggested her rubbing a drop or two on the bottom of his feet. Because of the tenderness of a child's feet I suggested she put baby oil, or a lotion on the feet first and then apply the peppermint, called layering. She told me later that the fever went right down. The oil can also be put at the base of the neck again putting lotion or another oil like coconut or baby oil on first and then applying the peppermint.

Breath peppermint through the nose and also through the mouth. I find when I breath it into the mouth very deeply it goes into the bronchial area of the lungs and opens those airways as well.

I use peppermint to help me stay awake too. I put it on my hands and cup them around my nose and take several deep breaths. I haven't used it to alleviate pain, but I can see how it would help. I'd like to try the beads. Maybe I will order some with my next order...

SAHASARA, peppermint is a stimulant for the body. A good one to breath in if having trouble staying awake. I keep some in my purse for when I am feeling down. I also use it to alleviate pain. It is one of the ingredients in Deep Blue which really works for pain relief.

The peppermint beads are great for freshing your breath.

I have acid reflux and can't use much peppermint internally as it give me heartburn sometimes.

It works great on your forehead when you have a headache!! I use it for that when I need to as it is usually a sinus headache.

Hope we get more posts about peppermint.

So the first oil I would like us all to research and discuss is Peppermint. doTERRA has the peppermint oil, beads, oil blends that incorporate the peppermint, etc. Peppermint is used for nasal congestion, sinusitus, alertness, anti-inflammatory and to improve digestion. There are many many more uses which I would like everyone to comment on and share. I have recently found that if I have peppermint anything before bed time then I can't sleep very well :) So I am trying to limit it to a certain hour of day.
