Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils For InstaNatural & my homemade soaps!
Peppermint essential oil gives a cooling sensation and has a calming effect on the body, which can relieve sore muscles when used topically. It also has antimicrobial properties so it can help freshen bad breath and soothe digestive issues.
Peppermint oil is recommended for its anti-nausea benefits.
The Lemon Essential Oil is extracted from the rinds of lemon, which lends its fresh citrus fragrance. This cold-pressed oil has a strong bright scent that is both refreshing and uplifting. Its astringent and purifying properties also make it a great aid to help cleanse and tone the skin, while delivering a boost of Vitamin C antioxidant benefits.
Lemon oil is one of the most “essential” oils to have on hand and can be used as teeth whitener, laundry freshener, cellulite cream, face wash and household cleaner.
Lemon and lemon essential oil are also used to decrease cholesterol deposition in the blood vessels and prevent heart disease!
Essential Oils are my new favorite thing. There are so many different oils out there and they all have different benefits and uses. Laundry freshener, teeth whitener, energy booster, headache relief, etc. The list goes on and on! Well, I used my peppermint and lemon oils to make soap! (pictured above) When I opened the peppermint oil, and took one whiff, my sinuses were cleared! It has a very strong scent. Which made my house smell great while I was making the soaps. I also wouldn't mind dropping a drop or two into my shower everyday. The lemon oil is just fabulous. It's just a fresh scent that reminds me of lemonade. I love the smell and taste of lemon. Putting 2 drops of lemon oil in your water 3x daily can support metabolism and weight loss. See.. the benefits of using essential oils is endless!
