Peppermint

As someone with horrible vision (I switch between contacts and glasses frequently, and do not see 20/20 out of either) headaches are a daily struggle. Ibuprofen was not fully effective, and I figured there was nothing to lose in trying something more natural. I started using peppermint oil to combat daily headaches and was so excited when it relieved that pain. 

REASONS WHY I LOVE PEPPERMINT: 

  • Headache relief (apply to forehead and temples)
  • Alleviate congestion (apply under nose and on chest)
  • Awaken senses! (diffuse or apply to back of the neck)

LEMON

Lemon is super versatile. I diffuse it each morning for a clean, fresh scent (usually combined with peppermint or stress away). BUT, it also supports bright skin and a healthy complexion by removing dead skin cells, so it made perfect sense to add it my coconut and sugar scrub. 

COCONUT LEMON SUGAR SCRUB: 

  1. Combine 4 tablespoons of sugar and 2.5 tablespoons of coconut oil 
  2. Add 3-4 drops of lemon essential oil 
  3. Store in mason jar and apply to face, hands, and body! Rinse with cool water.
