Peppermint Pt 2

Greetings & Salutations my Friends!!  I’m delighted you chose to join me this fair day.  Today I would enjoy sharing some of my personal experiences with peppermint.

We’ll start with the fact I’m spoiled.  I tend to act in that way occasionally.  It’s never pleasant & I’m always embarrassed by my lack of control once I calm down.  I’ve been looking for effective ways of gaining the control before acting like a two year old & in peppermint oil I may have found my answer.

Work seems to be the place that frustrates me the most, so I keep a bottle with a small amount of peppermint oil.  It’s right up next to my monitor where I see it.  When an event occurs & I feel the negativity bubbling up, I grab my little bottle, holding it close to my nose & inhale slowly & deeply.  I enjoy the freshness of the aroma.  I feel my positive self rising to the top.  Then I exhale slowly, letting go of the frustration, letting the heat out.  I’ll usually do one more inhale/exhale, then return the bottle to its place & go about my day.  I’m starting to notice now, that at other times, when I feel unreasonable, I can stop, focus on peppermint & bring the peace back to me.  The joy of seeing this growth is overwhelming.

Another use I have found for peppermint is my ear.  Here’s a bit of background.  For the last 10 yrs or so I’ve developed an itching in my ears.  The doctor I’ve had for the last few years recommended a natural cortisone I could pick up at a health food store.  It did alleviate the itching, but it never went away. 

Then in March of this year, after flying to Montana & back I developed a horrible ear ache.  I went to urgent care 3 times for the same issue.  Their ways did not fix the underlying issue. The itching has stopped though.  😊  I was finally able to end the aching using a home remedy.

As of today, I am still having occasional issues, but most are gone.  But when my ear does start to act up, I use a drop or two of peppermint oil on a spot of cotton.  I place the cotton against my ear opening, not inside the canal & go to bed.  When I wake up in the morning all the symptoms are gone.

Peppermint has become one of my favorites to drop in my little tealight warmer.  I get home from a hectic day & a little peppermint warming next to me turns my evenings around.  It gives me that second wind to get through making my dinner, feeding my animals, doing[H1] [H2]  some dabbling in my on-line store,, ending it with yoga & meditation.

Thank you for spending your time with me this day.  I do enjoy it.  Please leave any comments, I would love to hear from you.

In the meantime, Be Blessed.
