If you’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing essential oils, you understand the strength and potency of their aromas. BUT, were you aware of the effect the essential oil had on your body? Aromatherapy, or Essential Oil Therapy, can be a powerful form of complementary care and promote health and balance for mind, body, and soul.
Lavender and Peppermint oil are some of the most popular and useful essential oils on the market, their use dating back to ancient times. These two oils are definitely on the list of must-haves for any essential oil user…and here’s why:
To start, Lavender has a light and calming aroma that can aid in feelings of relaxation and help promote a restful night of sleep. It is a personal favorite to diffuse in the evenings when starting to wind down for the night. It is also useful to ease skin irritations and imperfections when applied topically. When taken internally, Lavender helps calm feeling of anxiety and can add flavor to tea or when cooking. My personal favorite is the Lavender touch roller ball because it is already prediluted with fractionated coconut oil and ready to be applied to my kids (and myself) during melt-downs.
Peppermint oil is more of an energizing aroma that can be diffused for a “pick-me-up”, taken internally to help digestive issues, or applied topically to soothe skin. Bad breath? Mix a drop of peppermint oil with water for a mouth rinse. Seasonal allergies? Add peppermint to your drink of choice to promote healthy respiratory function, and when blended with Lavender and Lemon, it is a natural antihistamine!

At the end of the day, there are a variety of single oils and combinations (blends) that are useful for a whole body health experience. If you would like to learn more about Essential Oils, please check out DoTerra:https://www.doterra.com/US/en/what-is-an-essential-oil
