Peppermint Slice

August 23, 2018 tappingin2nature 0 Comments

Peppermint essential oil is one of the most popular doTERRA essential oils. It is so powerful, 1 drop is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea. When you open that cap for the first time it’s like a punch of fresh air in your face. It is definitely one of our favourites and it combines so, so, so well with chocolate.

There are so many benefits to the peppermint essential oil and these include supporting digestion, headaches (roll onto temples), cooling on the body, improve athletic performance as shown by this article, after-sun care, deterring ants, improving respiratory distress, and helping open the airways when you are feeling restricted and anxious. So versatile, that’s why we love it so much!

This peppermint slice is dairy, refined sugar, gluten and nut free and we know you are going to love it. Please cut the pieces small and only make it when you are going out. From experience, you could will be tempted to eat the whole thing!
