Hello, Darlings! Today I am continuing my series on Essential Oils and talking about more fun things to do with my favorite brand- Natures Own Essence.
As I have mentioned, my cleanliness of my home and the purity of what is in it is important to me. If you walk into my house (please do come for some tea!) you will likely notice and comment on how awesome it smells. Thanks, essential oils! :D
Peppermint is a must have for every household. It is a super energizing scent and can be used topically(on the skin). I have calmed bad stomach aches by simply rubbing some Pure Peppermint Oil onto the skin on my stomach area. I like Nature's Own Essence because their oils are pure and undiluted, woo hoo! More power!
If you are wanting to do work on your chakras, Peppermint Essential Oil is wonderful for your Throat Chakra(communication) and your Solar Plexus Chakra(Confidence, Courage, Self Control).
I have an extra bonus for you regarding Peppermint Oil-Spiders, Ants, and other household pests LOATHE it. They also can not stand White Vinegar, so I combine the two and use it as a Super Powered Household Cleaner. I use it for EVERYTHING. My counter tops, my flooring, my bathroom, my mirrors. It works like dream, smells fantastic, and keeps your home creepy crawly free. Just keep in mind to only use White Vinegar, which repels pests, while ACV(Apple Cider Vinegar) attracts them. ;) Crank some killer tunes on your Bluetooth Speaker (can I recommend the Riverdale Soundtrack?!?) Diffuse some Peppermint Oil in your diffuser while you work and you are utilizing the 'Pep' in Peppermint! Your House, The House with Pep! That is a Riverdale reference for my fellow fans and not yet fans.
All you need is a large jug of White Vinegar, which is only a couple of dollars at your local big box store, a clean empty spray bottle, and some Peppermint Essential Oil. Natures Own has two sizes you can order-2oz or 1oz. Pour your White Vinegar into your spray bottle, add 5-15 drops of Peppermint Oil, depending on the size of your bottle and your personal preference. Your cleaner is now Ready to use!
This is the only cleaner I use. I also have an issue with Migraines, and it is really nice to be able to clean my house and not only not be completely ill from the scent of my cleaner like I would with anything store bought and (toxic) ingredient based, but it is helpful. I also use Peppermint Oil topically on my forehead and neck because the numbing power from the Menthol in Peppermint is super relieving!
