My thoughts

I have just begun my journey into essential oils. It only makes sense since I am enjoying gardening, raising my own chickens, and growing herbs. Peppermint essential oil was one of the oils I really wanted to get.

Majestic Pure peppermint essential oil comes in a big bottle and with a dropper. I love the dropper because it allows you to get exactly what you want and no more! I have had other essential oils with control flow caps and I tend to get more out than I want or some of it spills around the lid.

I had the lovely experience of getting the stomach flu virus. When I was recovery, my stomach would get nauseated eating simple foods. In order to help calm my stomach, I would place one drop on a cotton ball and let the smell of the peppermint reach my nose. In a few minutes, my stomach was settled.

My sweet boys shared their cold with me and my husband. We got super congested and had some minor respiratory problems. It was nice to be able to use the peppermint oil to fix that problems. And, it helped relieve headaches from all the congestion. I love getting fast results that last for a long time.

Please remember that while essential oils are natural, you need to research about them before you use. Essential oils are just like medicine, they have dosages and shouldn't be used for certain ages or conditions. For example, peppermint oil is one you don't use during pregnancy and for really young children. Majestic pure provides the information you need which I really appreciated because it will help prevent people from using the oil incorrectly. This goes to show that this company knows what it is doing!

There is a really helpful site,  , that will let you know how and when to use essential oils. This site has been an extremely beneficial tool! I am sharing this because I want everyone to know that essential oils need to be used safely and in correct dosages.

Anyways, I love knowing that I can treat my family at home and help aid their recovery from their illnesses. I love how essential oils have made my family depend less on pharmaceuticals and doctor visits. I am slowly adding essential oils to my "medicine cabinet" because they really do make a huge difference. I would recommend this peppermint essential oil to any of my family and friends!

Oh, and I can't wait to see how it works with keeping spiders and other insects out of my house come spring.

I want to start doing what you're doing...."slowly adding essential oils to my "medicine cabinet" " :)
