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, https://www.lbelitearomas.com/, 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.
