Top Five Essential Oils: Peppermint

Day Two in my top Five Favorite Essential Oils is Peppermint!!

Oh.. The Smell of Peppermint is Amazing! Sometimes I just hold it up and smell it straight from the bottle. To say I love the smell of peppermint would be an understatement.

Peppermint is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for supporting normal digestion, including promoting healthy intestinal function and gastrointestinal system comfort. It may also support your performance during exercise when ingested or added to water during physical activity. (1)
