I just wanted to share some of my experiences with doTERRA's Peppermint Essential Oil.  This is one oil that I would make sure to have on hand!

Just this morning, my 6 year old son came to me looking green like he was going vomit.  I told him to go to the sink (it was the closest thing) and I went straight for the Peppermint Oil.  While he was hanging his head over the sick, I told him to give me one of his hands.  I poured a little Peppermint Oil (diluted in oil) into his hand and told him to rub his hands together, cup his hands and hold them over his nose and breathe it in.  His nausea almost immediately disappeared! 

I also used Peppermint Oil, along with Frankincense, this morning to get rid of a headache.  I rubbed both of the oils onto my temples and forehead.  Within 10 minutes my headache was gone!

If you have a child with a fever, you can mist their back and chest with Peppermint Oil diluted in some water and it will bring their fever down within 10-15 minutes, whereas Tylenol takes about 30 minutes!

Did you know that fruit flies and other bugs hate Peppermint?  It will not kill them, just repel them.  I keep Peppermint Oil and water in a spray bottle (glass) to spray on my plants and my compost.  Plants love the Peppermint, so this is a plus!  This is the fastest way I have found to get rid of fruit flies.

These are just a few ways I have used Peppermint Oil recently.  I would love to hear other stories of success!
