GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential Oil is my go-to oil to keep my “cool”. It’s refreshing and naturally invigorating! It helps to reduce body temperature in just minutes.

I love to add a couple of drops to my unscented lotion in the summer to instantly cool down and re-energize. The cooling effect is fast and lasts for a long time too! Peppermint is commonly used in toothpaste, breath mints and mouthwash, but did you know that you can also use Peppermint Essential Oil to assist with headaches, digestion challenges and hot flashes too?

Historically Peppermint has been used for centuries from everything as a natural rodent deterrent, to using it as flavoring in cooking. Peppermint is considerably more potent in its concentrated form. One drop of a quality GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential Oil has the power of approximately 28 cups of peppermint tea. So a word to the wise, less is more when it comes to peppermint.


To use GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential Oil to cool my body down, I simply take one drop of GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential Oil and ¼ teaspoon of GuruNanda® Fractionated Coconut Oil or GuruNanda® Sweet Almond Oil, mix together in the palms of my hands and apply to the back of my neck then I breathe in the essence of the oil. When the weather is hot, I add a drop to my unscented lotion and apply all over my arms and legs. I also really like the invigorating and refreshing feeling it gives me. It’s also great as a natural “pick me up” before a meeting when I need to feel alert and focused.


For assisting with everyday common digestion challenges, I put one drop of GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential OilGuruNanda® Fractionated Coconut Oil or GuruNanda® Sweet Almond Oil and apply it lightly to my abdomen. It helps relieve my stomach upset right away. If my stomach discomfort hasn’t gone completely away, I simply reapply every hour for relief. When I get the occasional tension headache, I put one drop of GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential Oil along with my carrier of GuruNanda® Fractionated Coconut Oil or GuruNanda® Sweet Almond Oil on my fingers and rub it into my temples, breathing in the cooling aroma.

Take caution, any of these symptoms could be a sign of something more serious going on in your body so it’s best to always check in with your doctor. Also, essential oils are not to be used in the ears, up the nose, in your eyes or any other sensitive areas.


I’m also not a fan of spiders and critters so I made a natural deterrent that won’t harm them but simply keep them entering my home. I picked up a spray bottle from my local hardware store that holds 20 ounces of water, added ten drops of GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential Oil around the windows. You can use this as often as you like and it’s also great for your home garden as well. It deters bugs from eating your herbs, fruits and veggies before you do!

As you can see, GuruNanda® Peppermint Essential Oil has so many uses; I could go on and on and on! It’s easy to incorporate GuruNanda peppermint essential oil and other essential oils into your daily routine. So get your “cool” on and pick yours up today!
