The color of harmony and health. Green is a generous, relaxing color that revitalizes our body and mind. It balances our emotions and leaves us feeling safe and secure. It also gives us hope, with promises of growth and prosperity, and it provides a little bit of luck to help us along the way.
Peppermint Essential Oil contains menthol. Menthol induces a cooling sensation, and use of Peppermint Oil (at low dilution) in a body mist or even in the diffuser can help to cool you down.
Menthol is also known to help ease tension headaches and muscular aches and pains.
If you find Peppermint Oil to be a bit too intense, you may enjoy working with Spearmint Oil. Often, I substitute Spearmint Essential Oil for some of the Peppermint Essential Oil in a blend.
Emotionally, Peppermint Essential Oil is stimulating and is a good choice for inclusion in blends intended to help enhance alertness and stamina. It is considered an aphrodisiac. Peppermint should be avoided before bedtime.
