Cools the body down when your temperature rises. Apply 1-2 drops with a carrier oil and apply over the back of the neck and soles of feet. I like to add a drop or two to the palms of my hands to place over the head when hot, I use this to cool my kiddies down when they are feeling unwell.

Eat it – Add 1-3 drops to your Bliss Balls or favourite raw dessert. Peppermint chocolate!

Mosquito Bites – Apply to ease the heat caused by the bite of a mosquito. I use a neat little dab, followed by Lavender to soothe the itching.

Respiratory – Helps to support the respiratory system, opens up the airways in times of need.

Focus & Alert – Inhale from palms to awaken your senses. Add 1 drop to 2 drops carrier oil and apply over the back of your neck to wake you up.

Sleep – 2 drops lavender with a drop of FCO rubbed on the soles of your feet and pushed into the tip of the big toe. For extra knock out sleep add Vetiver and or Peace blend.
Add a few drops to your hands, rub together and apply over your pillow, apply behind ears too.

Warts –  Applied to warts will help remove them, make sure you apply a barrier cream around the outside of the wart area so the oil does not burn the skin.

Never pop in water to drink, it will burn you.
