This month the oil we are featuring, just happens to be my favorite: Peppermint! This oil is said to be the oil of a buoyant heart. It invigorates the mind, body, and spirit. "It reminds individuals that they don't have to be controlled by fear," according to ShareOils Blog. It lifts one out of emotional turmoil and lends to emotional reprieve. It acts as a flotation device and allows you to stay on the surface in an ocean of emotions. Peppermint can be used to help one rediscover the joy of being alive. Peppermint allows for a breath of fresh air.
