Here comes the holiday recipes!

Okay, this recipe was very fun to create because I had never used essential oils in my smoothies before!

One of my all time favorite essential oils is Peppermint. That stuff is a miracle worker! Especially if you have stomach issues, a stuffy nose, a sore throat, or even nausea. Check out my favorite peppermint remedies below!

  1. For a sore throat. Heat up a mug of water util hot. Add 2-3 drops of peppermint oil and 2 Tbs of honey (or desired sweetness) Sip that baby down. Promise you wont regret it!
  2. For nausea. Just breathe it in! As you do you will notice your nausea completely go away. If you don’t want to walk around holding a little doterra bottle and completely look like a hippie, just put a little under your nose on your skin.
  3. If your feeling stuffy. Put one or two drops of peppermint oil on the back of your hand. With your whole tongue, lick the back of your hand. Now, I will warn you, it will definitely open up your sinuses. You will feel it! But in a minute you will feel SO much better.
  4. If you have a head ache. Rub the oils on the back of your neck and on your temples.
  5. If you have a stomach ache. Rub the oils on your stomach or try the tea mentioned first.
