Decongest your bodies and minds with peppermint essential oil

Peppermint essential oil can help start your day fresh.

TAHOE VISTA, Calif. — As a child I always had very vivid dreams and on certain nights even nightmares. My nighttime fear may have stemmed from a bit of a blockage within my sixth chakra, also known as the "Third Eye."

This area of the body is where much of our imagination and intuition develops. When we find decision making to be quite a daunting task, we may have some issues with our sixth chakra.

Peppermint essential oil can be used to aid in the opening of a blocked Third Eye. When used on the temples and neck, this particular oil helps release tension, mental strain, depressive tendencies and migraine symptoms.

The Peppermint plant has long been used to decongest our bodies and our minds. It is one of the few oils that will act to cool one person off and then heat another person up.

The oil works differently from one person to the next. It helps to connect ones mind with the body therefore strengthening memory and mental acuity. When we work with Peppermint essential oil, is it important to dilute before topical application due to its strong vapor.

Adding Peppermint essential oil to a steamy shower in the morning helps to awaken the senses and start the day off feeling fresh. With a clear head, we are able to embark upon our day with a positive and intuitive mindset.
