Peppermint...Yum. I love it in my cocoa, I love it on my brownies, I love it in my candies (none of which are any good for me...). But I also love it for use in my health regiment. Peppermint is great for opening airways and makes it a lot easier to work out. I add a few drops to my chest when I am headed to the gym and it makes the workout go by like a breeze. The cooling is really nice during the workout too and reminds me that it is working.
I always know when I forget too because the same daily workout will seem about 50% more difficult when I don't have my oil on. Grab a bottle of peppermint today and see how it affects your workout!
The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in the doTERRA Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally.* Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among doTERRA essential oils.
