Is it almost Summertime for you? It is for me!
Hot tips to cool a sweltering, summer heatwave with one special substance!
On a hot hot day, we could all use a cool companion. Essential oil of peppermint is just that. Peppermint is cooling in the extreme.
I place a drop on my tongue and apply tiny dabs just inside my nasal passages – this will cool you down & kill pathogens in the throat & sinuses. So definitely use it that way if you are in moldy places or feel you may have been exposed to air-born germs.
And for further cooling I’ve got 3 more tips for using essential oil of peppermint:
- Place a few drops on the soles of your feet which will cool you quickly and last a good hour or so.
- Put a few drops in your water. Mint is intensely Yin which is why She is so cooling.
- Place a drop on the top of the head at the crown and in the case of migraines, also on the temples.
Reduce Fevers with Peppermint Oil
N.B. I have used this method successfully many times to reduce fevers naturally when parents were nervous about the fevers their children were running but did not want to medicate them. The oils work synergistically with the body so they will never interfere with a necessary process like burning off the ‘bad stuff’ but the body will use them to the degree it needs them if/when it does. It’s always a compliment, never a detriment.
May you feel much more at ease this summer with your cool companion, Madame Peppermint!
In loving service,
Such simple concepts and yet so powerful & effective! I know it seems a labor to dry brush daily but you know it’s working because you feel so wonderful immediately afterward. The euphoria ringing through the skin & lymph is unquestionably communicating that good work has been done. It’s a great example of the effort required to bring about a syntropic result!
Then, I apply whatever pure oil I have on hand to my ‘trouble zones’ (in my case, front & back of my thighs) and use the large sized Bella Baci cup to bring about increased circulation (the suction from the cups draws oxygenated blood to the surface cells which otherwise tend to get the short end of the stick and help loosen the fascia, trapped fluid and adipose knitting that increases the appearance of cellulite). This cupping is generally painful at the start. But as the cupping does its work after a few sessions, it really doesn’t hurt at all. In fact, it feels quite nice. The appearance of cellulite can appear worse as the tension in the fascia releases. (This seems to be different for everyone as some find they have immediately positive cosmetic results).
I know the effect is ultimately positive as the method increases blood flow, massages unwanted tense calcification from the fascia for improved flow and leaves the skin feeling softer and the muscle more supple and youthful. Finally, I use the small, cone shaped Bella Baci cup on my face (always apply oil first). I do all this in the sauna so it’s an all-in-one routine. Time management is key! Blessings of health, happiness, strength & beauty!
In loving service,
