Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Wow! I had to jump on and post this! It is very hot and humid here today in Minneapolis, MN, so hot that everywhere we go, sweat is dripping off our faces and bodies.

My son just came in and said "Dad, the sweat is just dripping off my face! Dang it's hot!" So I said "I'll make something to cool you down". I just remembered how amazing Peppermint is at cooling the body down - it can bring down a very high fever in just minutes.

So I grabbed an 8 oz spray bottle, filled it up with water and added 16 drops of Peppermint. I shook up the bottle, then sprayed down my son, myself, and my partner.

Wow! My son came back to me 3 minutes later and said "Dad, I'm too cold!" That's not a problem today with the temperature at 90F and humidity 60%

Now we are all cooled off, our energy levels jumped amazingly, and I now have an awesome summer cool-down to share with you all!

Peace, and thank you Peppermint oil!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: temperature-regulation — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
2.Associated topics: temperature-regulation — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
