Peppermint essential oil is the perfect antidote to an early morning alarm clock. The scent alone is so energizing you can just unscrew the top and take a big long inhale and to get your day started. It’s also great diffused, and if you have a high quality grade that is ingestible it’s lovely in coffee or tea.
Aside from the energizing factor, it has also been reported to help alleviate headaches and nausea and it works well as a natural insect repellent.
As for mixing with other essential oils, the Young Living website suggests this:
Peppermint is in the same family as both Lavender and Rosemary. Diffuse the oils of these powerful botanicals together for a fresh aroma that uplifts the spirit.
I use both Young Living and Living Libations brand essential oils, in my experience they both offer high quality options, and I have peppermint in both! I can share a little more about why I like these brands in another post, but for now I just want to say they are both lovely.
If you have a bottle, try it on your bedside table this week for first thing and let me know how it goes!
