Canadians know all about the purity of a product. We have miles of fresh water in our country; actually, Canada has the 4th largest supply of fresh water in the world. Our vast wilderness and beautiful lakes exhibit the purity of the beautiful country that we call home.
Lotus Naturals understands that pure is vital to you and we want you to know that pure is also very important to us. All of our products are Certified Pure – they are tested again and again to confirm their purity. We have a high standard of quality, and we will not rest until our brand is known as Canada’s leading Certified Pure company.
As we move into these fall months, I wanted to write a blog post about a product (actually one of our first products and still one of our favourites) that every home should own. I’m talking about peppermint essential oil or Mentha Piperita.
Peppermint is a staple when it comes to essential oils. It has so many great uses that it’s hard to know where we should even start.
Peppermint Oil Benefits
Here is a quick list of the common uses of peppermint essential oil:
• Diminishes stomach aches
• Ease digestive issues
• Refreshes bad breath
• Reduces headaches
• Antimicrobial qualities
• Increases mental focus
• Clears respiratory tract
• Increases energy
• Releases tight muscles
• A cheaper solution to pharmaceutical drugs
When I have a headache, I always reach for my peppermint SMARTblend and roll some on my forehead. In fact, before I ever used essential oils I had read that peppermint oil was great for taking away a headache; because I suffer from headaches frequently, peppermint oil was that one product that drew me into essential oils.
I also love the fragrance of peppermint. I will usually take the oil and diffuse it in our family room while we play games. The cozy aroma is lovely, and it has a ton of health benefits as well.
Lots of Studies
There have been hundreds of research done on the effectiveness of peppermint oil.
For instance, in 2012 a study came out of Clayton State University that tested to see if peppermint oil had any effect on postoperative nausea and vomiting. The results were an overwhelming yes. Anyone who goes through surgery could suffer from this condition; peppermint oil is a great way to levitate these side effects.
Great For Pain
Fight A Cold
Lotus Naturals Canada sells a great little tool called an inhaler. The inhaler is used to breathe your essential oils when you’re on the go. If you are struggling with a cold, we recommend using the inhaler and some peppermint oil to fight off those nasty symptoms. Also, we sell a blended essential oil called Respiration Blend. Filled with powerful essential oils used to fight respiratory issues, Respiration will help you kill off a cold sooner. You could also take the respiratory blend and add it to an inhaler for even greater effectiveness.
Never Use Your Oils Neat or Undiluted
We recommend that essential oils never be applied neat; dilute your essential oils in a carrier oil for safe usage. We love using our Lotus Naturals Coconut Oil for diluting our essential oils for topical use.
Essential oils are usually lipophilic (literally: “oil-loving”) compounds that usually are not miscible with water. They can be diluted in solvents like pure ethanol and polyethylene glycol. The most common way to safely dilute essential oils for topical use is in a carrier oil. This can be any vegetable oil readily available, the most popular for skin care being jojoba, coconut, wheat germ, olive and avocado.
If you are looking for pure peppermint oil in Canada then you have found the best site. We offer a pure product at an even purer price. The reason why I’m saying that our price is pure is because we don’t have any overhead. We only sell online, which allows us to give you a great price.
