Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Tess
I handed out essential oil samples to some women at a weekend retreat in April. One of them took three samples. She had a cold sore on her lip and started putting peppermint essential oil on it. After doing this three times, the cold sore was gone!

For an after sun cooling spray I mix a few drops of Peppermint and Lavender with water in a spray bottle. The Peppermint cools and the Lavender soothes my whole family’s skin after a fun day in the sun.
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Lucinda
I think everyone should carry around a small glass bottle of water with a few drops of peppermint for so many reasons…it can wake you up when you are drowsy…it can freshen your breath…it can disinfect surfaces…and, ahhhh, it smells so heavenly!
At a class this week I found a new use for Peppermint essential oil – DETOX! We teach in our classes all the facts about how essential oils can enter a cell and actually detoxify our cells that do their job of protecting our health from the constant toxic onslaught, but we had an experience in class that demonstrated that perfectly!
When attempting to do a zyto scan on a friend it wouldn’t work because her hands were dry and it requires a good “connection”. If it can’t read someone’s energy I always have them get their hand wet because water is a good conductor of electricity. In this room we didn’t have access to water but we had the spritzer bottle of water and Peppermint oil. It took quite a few sprays to get her hand wet enough to read with the machine.
Afterwards she smelled her hand and was stunned that rather than peppermint she was smelling the bleach she had cleaned with earlier that day! Her other hand did not smell like the bleach. The peppermint oil literally pushed the toxic bleach out of her cells!
I recommended that if she is going to use bleach she should wear gloves because bleach kills the sensitive good bacteria in our guts. An even better solution would be switching to a natural, safe cleaner like OnGuard Surface Cleaner Concentrate and use Peppermint essential oil daily!
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea
It was the big series of No Child Left Behind testing and each day I brought a different oil for kids to try. I brought lavender, peppermint, and wild orange and on the 4th day I let them pick the one they liked best. More than half of the students picked peppermint. They said it helped them focus and kept them alert.

Peppermint is by far my favorite oil. It’s invigorating and powerful! First of all, I have allergies and it curbs my congestion instantly. Moreover, I put a drop in a glass of water before working out and I literally feel stronger and have more stamina. Since I started using it, I have achieved athletic goals I’ve never dreamed of. In May of 2013, I placed 2nd in a 10k and over the past few months, I have trained myself to do 130 pull ups.
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Denise
I took my son, Seth, for a tour of the GA Tech campus. The start of the tour began in a large auditorium with all prospective students. While the guide was giving her introductory speech, Seth’s nose began to get stuffy due to something in the room. He began to sniff and snort. Well, the acoustics in the auditorium were great! With everything silent, and his sniffing magnified by the acoustics of the room, it sounded like a train had entered the room! I was sitting beside him, simply pulled out my bottle of peppermint from my purse, and opened the bottle. I simply held it in my hand aimed in his direction. In less than a minute, he turned to me and said, “Peppermint”? I nodded. Within two minutes, his sniffing had stopped. I love the power of the oils!
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Jex and Jamie
Our pre-teen daughter LOVES this oil! She has always suffered from debilitating headaches that used to knock her out for hours at a time. Now, at the onset of a headache, she applies a few drops of Peppermint to her forehead and neck. She will also apply a few drops of Peppermint to the palms of her hands and inhale deeply, causing the pain to subside within minutes! The best part is that nature’s medicine is safer, cheaper and more effective than the modern medicine we used to give her!
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Jessica
I felt like I was on Oprah Winfrey’s Favorite Things episode this year as I gave EVERYONE I know the Trio of Oils kit from doTERRA. It includes a bottle of Peppermint, Lemon and Lavender. After my mother had successfully treated leg pain with Peppermint, she passed it on to her friend that had pain from ALS. Unfortunately, his Vicodin RX was not effective anymore and the Tylenol wasn’t cutting it. After using two drops of peppermint oil twice he said he experienced more relief than from any of the medications he had ever been on. Sharing a good thing and seeing healing being passed on from one person to another through one simple bottle of essential oils is amazing. Simply amazing.
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy
It’s spring time. We are out and so are those pesky mosquitoes. I was visiting with my neighbor while holding my sweet baby girl. The mosquitoes LOVED her. I didn’t have TerraShield yet so I just grabbed what I did have which was a squirt bottle full of peppermint oil and water. I keep that around to spray on my sometimes stinky kids. I sprayed that on her and it deterred the mosquitoes. Who knew?

Now that the weather is nice, we spend more time playing in the yard and sitting around fires in the evening. We are also being eaten alive by mosquitos’ when we go out. So I mixed up some bug spray to put on the family. I use a few drops of Peppermint oil to keep the spiders away along with TerraShield and Lemongrass. I am happy to say it works amazingly because I didn’t get one bite. I usually have a few after a very short time outside. And it’s safe to put on my baby!
