Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Marcie
I am a Peppermint-a-holic. I love everything about this oil! I take it internally, I smell it and I add it to my watermelon salad dressing. It’s one of the ones I use the most.

I love it in the MCM class when we tell everyone about how one drop of peppermint oil is as strong as 28 cups of peppermint tea! Our family has always loved peppermint tea and now it is even easier to have. One of my friends was over during the Christmas holidays, and we talked over our teacups. She called me the next day wanting to buy a bottle because she told me it was the first time in a very long time that her sinuses were completely clear. Along with the warm tea in her tummy, the strong scent had entered her nasal passages and fixed a long-standing problem!
I also had to make an 8 hour drive alone to attend an important family meeting. Always before, a coke would be at my side. Oh, but I know better now! No more of that soda for me! I had my trusty little bottle of peppermint and every time I felt “yawny” I would take a whiff or put a drop on my tongue…never had a problem with being tired on that long drive.
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Bernadette
Digestive problems have been a part of my life for quite some time now. For the last several months I have been putting a drop of peppermint oil in my water bottles and sipping the peppermint water throughout the day. I’ve had psoriasis behind my neck for over 15 years. Digestive problems cause a lot of other health issues to arise. The psoriasis behind my neck was horrible and ugly… itchy, flakey, red, and I had a big rash patch. I was fighting psoriasis for years and trying every known cure to man, nothing ever worked. Today the back of my neck is smooth and soft like a baby’s bottom.

I put a drop of Peppermint oil in my water bottles and sip the peppermint water throughout the day. I am now gifted with an abundance of never-ending energy. I can think clearly, stay focused longer and endure tedious tasks with a great attitude. What I have been enjoying the most about peppermint is its ability to increase my energy. In the past, as soon as it got dark outside, I was ready to put my comfy cuddly PJ’s on and go to bed. Now I am excitedly up to wee hours of the night studying up on doTERRA oils and reading more and more great mind boggling information from the greensmoothiegirl website. LOVE YOU ROBYN! And thanks so much for introducing us to doTERRA.
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Karen
Recently I traveled out of state to visit a friend, with a good supply of essential oils “just in case.” I included peppermint essential oil because I knew for sure it would be used on my temples and the back of my neck to enhance alertness during the long drive.
When I arrived, my friend was in bad shape with hives; swollen lips, eyes, hands, red skin, and totally miserable. I grabbed the peppermint oil and had her apply some to the bottoms of her feet as well as I had her drink a few drops in water.
We were totally amazed to see her swelling dissipate after only 5 to 10 minutes, and she continued to improve!
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Dany
Peppermint oil is so effective in reducing fever. I rubbed it on my daughter’s feet to avoid having to use medication to keep her comfortable and it worked so well.
I also use it myself all the time to improve alertness while driving long distances or just when I’m home and need a little pick-me-up. That way, I can avoid having to resort to artificial and damaging solutions to maintain my productivity.
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Loretta
I had a really special day planned for just my mom and me to be together. Wouldn’t ya know it…one of my kiddos wakes up sick…NOOO! I grabbed my bottle of Peppermint and rubbed it onto the bottom of her feet and put the diffuser right next to her with Peppermint in it as well. There was NO WAY this mama was going to miss a day out!
By the time I was ready to go, she was no longer clammy and her tummy “wasn’t as icky”. I doused her tummy area with Peppermint oil, diluted with a bit of Fractionated Coconut Oil to get good coverage. As I left, I placed my oldest daughter in charge of keeping the diffuser running with Peppermint oil.
Upon checking in at home, the sicky was feeling great and running and giggling! And I got to have my day out with my mom!
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Brandi
A few weeks after receiving my kit, my 4yo daughter was coming down with a fever and becoming lethargic. I knew her temperature was rising (it was almost 102 and getting worse) and I felt like I only had a little time. Either try the peppermint, or give her medicine. She was passed out on the couch while I applied peppermint to her back and top of her head.
In less than 2 hours her temperature dropped more than 2 degrees and she was running around the house happy as ever!
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Donna
Peppermint was the first oil I shared with a client of mine who had completely plugged sinuses. During the third “aromatic” experience via “Cupping” his sinuses cleared and he was absolutely amazed!! He purchased that bottle on the spot.
I used peppermint while exercising to open up my airways and it helps perk up my energy during long workouts.
Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Amy
When my sweet daughter forgets to drink enough water, she inevitably ends up with a migraine headache. Peppermint oil has become her best friend and constant companion. It eases out the headache in a matter or minutes while addressing the nausea that so often comes with it. She’s back to the play, the game, or class pain-free in 30 minutes or less, when the headache used to finish her for the day!
Thankfully, she takes a more proactive approach these days, adding peppermint to her water and carrying the bottle with her almost everywhere.
