Peppermint Essential Oil

       It's give away time!  I'm giving away one 5 ml bottle of doTERRA Peppermint Oil.  I use peppermint oil for tension headaches, for a relaxing bath, or diluted with fractionated coconut oil to cool my kids fevers. 

Some other uses for peppermint oil:
* Inhale as a non-stimulant pick-me-up on long drives (or runs!)
* Rub on stomach or feet, or take one drop internally to calm an upset stomach.
* Add to shampoo or conditioner for a stimulating scalp massage.
* Diffuse into the air or use topically to open sinuses and airways.

Here's how to enter:
       My Healthy Recipes Page is short on recipes.  Please share with me one of your favorite healthy recipes.  You  can either leave me the link, or type the recipe in the comment section of this post.  Limit two entries per person.  I'll draw a winner on Friday, Aug 26th.    (Then I get to try all your recipes before I add them to my Healthy Recipes Page.)

Thanks and Good Luck!


  1. woo-hoo, a giveaway!! I want to win!

    OK, My favorite recipe is
    1/2 cup instant oats
    1/2 cup coconut milk
    handful of frozen blackberries.
    Cook in microwave for one minute. Stir, cook for 1-2 minutes more until blackberries aren't frozen and the oats are cooked. I love this. If I don't have eggs for breakfast, I always have this oatmeal!

  2. Here is the latest recipe I posted on my Salads and Such blog:

    I need all the help I can get with tension headaches.

  3. You know all my recipes but here's a link to my baked chicken chimichangas. I'm no healthy food expert, but these are baked instead of fried. That's gotta count for something, right?! :)
    Hope I win. My peppermint is almost gone.
