Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I've been using Peppermint Oil for the past two years. Within a week of using it, it easily became (and remains) my favorite oil. It's seriously "essential" for me!

I've suffered with migraines, head pressure, jaw/neck/back pain for many years. Regular chiropractic adjustments began to resolve a lot of my troubles, but didn't always provide me with the relief that I needed when out and about.

Peppermint, I can throw in my purse or pocket, and take with me wherever I go. It gives me confidence to do the things I need to, because I know if I get a headache (etc), I'm covered!

Also, when I travel abroad I don't have as much anxiety about what "medications" to bring. I just bring my oils and I'm all set.

For headaches I apply to the temples (steer clear of the eyes), a swipe across the forehead, and on my atlas/axis (C1 and C2). If you have a head cold with sinus pressure, you can apply a dab to your sinuses in addition. Because my pain is so intense, I apply this undiluted. However, many people are too sensitive to do so and should combine with a carrier oil (ie. coconut oil). Test your skin and your own sensitivity, and use your good sense!

For other musculoskeletal pain, I apply directly to the point of interest (1-2 drops).

Peppermint is also wonderful for stomach upset! I've also suffered from gastrointestinal issues for many years, so this has been a Godsend. I ONLY use Peppermint for tummy relief now. I typically apply it in a large circle around my abdomen, clockwise. I also inhale some. It helps with nausea very quickly!

When I have a fever, I apply it to the soles of my feet, for fever reduction. Very simple, very effective.
