Peppermint tea has been a stable in my household for many years. It was my go-to tea when ever I felt stressed, overwhelmed, needed a bit of unwinding. or woke up in the middle of the night with chatter gremlins in my head. But sometimes, when I really needed to sit and sip the time wasn’t there.
As I delve farther and farther into the realm of natural healing I soon discovered why I used Peppermint Tea for these reasons.
Peppermint may help with the following:
- Stress and Anxiety - It helps relax your muscles which also helps you sleep better when taken before bed
- Sinus relief – Peppermint has been described as a natural decongestant and helps clear your sinuses
- Soothe Sore Throat – The menthol in peppermint is what helps soothe your throat and clear your sinuses
- Appetite suppressant – Apparently it is the scent of peppermint that helps reduce your appetite and cravings more than anything else
- Breathe Freshener – Thats why you find it so often as a flavoring in toothpaste but don’e expect to get all these benefits just by brushing your teeth!
- Stomach and Digestive Soother – You can get relief from stomach pain, cramping, bloating,indigestion and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
- Food Flavoring- Peppermint is wonderful in cookies, don’t you think?
There are other great reasons to use Peppermint but these things are what most people, including myself, know to use peppermint for.
Sipping Peppermint tea can be relaxing and a lovely break in your hectic day but sometimes we need the benefits listed above but don’t really have the time to sit still and sip.
Peppermint Oil To the Rescue
Peppermint Oil is the highly concentrate compounds that have been steamed distilled from the Peppermint plant leaves. It has all the benefits of the peppermint as listed above in an easy and cost effective way, but here is the fun part. One drop of Peppermint oil is equal to 28 cups of Peppermint tea!! That’s huge!!
For fun I did some calculations- One drop is generally equal to .05 ml (in cooking) which means there is 20 drops per milliliter. A bottle of doTERRA Peppermint Oil is 15 ml. If I figured this out correctly that means there are about 300 drops of oil in one bottle. If 1 drop is equivalent to 28 cups of tea that means that one bottle of doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oils is like having 8400 cups of tea!!
I took this one step further and calculated the cost of buying tea vs one small bottle of essential oils.
So… A 20 count box of Peppermint Tea, at a cost of $2.50 a box, calculates out to .125 each bag. If there are 8400 cups of tea in one 15ml bottle of Essential oil, that works out to costing $1050 in tea bags!! A bottle of doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil costs $20.50 (wholesale).
Now that is cost effective!!
Don’t be fooled by 100% essential Oil Labels
Switching to Essential Oils for your health and well being is easy and cost effective, as you just saw. DoTERRA Essential Oils are the finest, most pure ones out there. They are self Certified CPTG, which stands for Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. For me, that just assures me that they, as an essential oil company, have set higher than average standards for their products. It also assures me that their oils are not only 100% essential oils but there are no fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities.They are subjected to above and beyond 3rd party testing to assure this quality standard is met. AND their oils are harvested from plants that have been allowed to grow in their natural environment and not forced to grow where they are not native.
