“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.”
~ Etty Hillesum
Essential oils from the mint group, particularly with higher percentages of menthol, will help to cool you down on hotter days.
Peppermint and Spearmint essential oils are two of the best for tackling the Texas dog days of summer.
Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint contains a significant amount of menthol, which will not only cool you, but help you to relax and ease any muscle
tension headaches or muscle aches you may be experiencing. You want to make sure that you utilize this oil early enough in
the day, as it can be very stimulating and has been known to interfere with the sleep cycles of people who are sensitive to scents.
Spearmint Essential Oil
Spearmint contains less menthol than peppermint, but the scent is less potent. Spearmint can also provide relief from
muscle spasms and cramps. Spearmint is extremely soothing and can reduce indigestion, stomachaches and feelings of nausea.
