Peppermint holiday helper

By now candy canes are appearing everywhere from grocery stores to shopping malls. This edible Christmas time staple contains a valuable ingredient when it comes to skincare and health: peppermint

Peppermint oil's health treatments include: indigestion relief, help with respiratory problems, and relief from headaches, nausea, fevers and more. And it is also a stress reliever, making it perfect for the holidays.

However, be careful with peppermint oil if you are pregnant. It can be too stimulating for expectant mothers.

To relieve those tension headaches all too common during this time of year, add one to two drops of peppermint essential oil to your conditioner. Shampoo, then massage the conditioner starting at the base of your hairline and work your way around in circular motions.

Got any great peppermint treatments? Let us know............
