Is there a Natural Healing?
I wanted to investigate different tricks and tips using natural, semi-natural, and cost efficient products. I will be mass studying essential oils, minerals, vitamins, home remedies, and natural stones to see how their natural processes can help relieve some of our ailments.
Let’s look at an example: peppermint.
Did you know that peppermint can be taken orally in a supplement/drank in a tea, taken topically on the skin in ointments, creams, and oils, and inhaled through the respiratory system?! There are so many ways to take advantage of this goodness!
For the orally taken peppermint supplements or the herbal peppermint teas, the herbal goodness is digested in your belly and then takes its journey throughout your body. Did you know that when you apply peppermint essential oil to your skin that it actually penetrates cell membranes (this allows the oil to absorb into your skin) and begin it’s journey travelling through your body in less than 15 minutes after application?! That was very interesting to learn. Also, when you inhale peppermint essential oil, it’s absorbed into your lungs and respiratory system, then it begins it’s awesome little journey circulating through your blood stream.
Oral Peppermint can help treat IBS, GI Tract Spasms, Nausea, Vomiting/Morning Sickness, Menstrual Issues, Gas, Diarrhea, and seasonal colds/coughs. Topical Peppermint can relieve headaches, joint pain, muscle pain, nerve pain, itchiness, toothache, and it repels mosquitoes! (As I sit here typing this, I was being overly annoyed by a few houseflies who found their way inside my home… I put one drop of peppermint essential oil on cotton pads, placed one cotton pad on each side of me, and BAM! them flies are now annoying someone else. Shew fly don’t bother me!) Lastly, Inhaled peppermint can work to clear your nasal passages and fight congestion. It also creates a sense of mood elevation, while alleviating feelings of anxiety and depression.
As I continue my study on peppermint and other herbs, I will share what I find so that you can learn as much about herbal goodness as you can to become a healthier you.
I anticipate being informative so that my studies can be helpful to each reader. I am open to questions and comments. You can contact me here.
