Mind / Body / Soul Series: Peppermint

The Mind/Body/Soul Series is back and minty-fresh this week!

And, in case you’re new to the M/B/S Series – here’s a quick intro: When we’re setting out to resolve health concerns, we’ve been trained to take a reductionist approach, usually solely focusing on physical symptoms and finding quick fixes to mask them. But the truth is, our health is a mind/body/soul operation, and we need to look at ourselves through that lens to get to the root of our problems and ultimately find deep, long-lasting balance and peace in our lives. This series is aimed at diving deeper than symptoms to reveal how a selection of super-versatile essential oils can be our allies in holistic health.

Now, onto today’s oil: Peppermint!

When I teach workshops, one of my favorite things is watching what happens to people’s bodies when they take their first inhale from a bottle of Peppermint as it’s passed around. Their spine straightens, their heart opens, a twinkle of aliveness sparks in their eyes, and they have a general sense of expansiveness about them. It’s almost as if you can *see* their lungs and bloodstream being flooded (in a good way) with fresh, life-giving oxygen.

This initial experience gives us a pretty solid glimpse into Peppermint’s benefits. That’s one of the cool things about essential oils (and things found in nature, in general) – they give us clues about their therapeutic benefits in so many subtle and not-so-subtle ways – like the way you feel and what happens to your body when you take a whiff of them, what the plants actually look like when they grow in nature, the climates they best thrive in, etc.

Peppermint deserves a front-row spot in everyone’s essential oil collection. Now, let’s explore why!
