5 Ways To Use Peppermint Coconut Oil
1. Oil Pulling – this might be a no brainer for my oil pulling peeps out there but for those of you new to it or wanting to give it a whirl, oil pulling with plain coconut oil can be a little bleh. Mix in peppermint and not only are you doing your mouth a world of good but that minty taste make it feel like a party in there.
2. Relieve A Headache – peppermint is awesome for a headache! Rub a little on your temples and behind your neck and let those wondrous soothing properties take over. It improves circulation and relaxes muscles. You get the added benefits of coconut oil and since it won’t clog pores you don’t have to worry about putting it on your face.
3. Stop An Itch – got a bite or a rash? Both coconut oil and peppermint essential oil have antimicrobial properties which will knock out any invaders that get in. In addition, they both will work in concert to calm and soothe an itch.
4. Fever Reducer –Because of peppermint oil’s cooling effects, it is an excellent natural treatment to bring down a fever especially in children. Simply mix peppermint oil with coconut oil and rub it on a child’s neck and on the bottom of their feet to help stabilize a fever.
5. Hair Growth – Coconut oil has worked miracles for hair loss. (Be sure to click that link and read that post!) Peppermint oil is used in many hair care products because it can naturally thicken and nourish damaged hair. Together, these two are hair regrowth powerhouses!
