A Drop a Day Keeps the Dr, Away

When I was offered the chance to try Insta Natural's Peppermint & Lemon essential oils, I jumped.

I have heard so much about these oils, it seems like they're a really popular trend right now and so of course as soon as I received them, I went straight to the internet to research them.

My sweet friend over at Seersucker Sass has instructions on the post I linked, so you can diffuse the oils on the stove (safely!) if you're without a diffuser.


I decided to try them out for their different purposes as well, so here ya go :)

Peppermint

Add a drop of oil to your tea to aid digestion (plus it tastes great!)
Two drops on your tongue can help increase concentration
Inhale & massage several drops of oil onto your abdomen to relieve minor stomach discomfort.

I can completely attest to the last one working. 
The reason I haven't been on the blog for the past week is because I had the stomach bug & this oil really helped curb my nausea!

Lemon

Use 1-2 drops to remove oil & grease spots from most surfaces
Put 2-3 drops in a spray bottle filled with water to cleanse & sanitize surfaces
Add 1-2 drops to your morning tea or breakfast shake for a pick-me-up
Add several drops to a chicken marinade for a yummy dinner
Place a few drops on a cotton ball & place in the fridge to eliminate smells

Just opening the jar of lemon had my house smelling amazing, it's been a few days since I opened it & I'm still getting the scent of freshness.

I was SO pleased with these oils & I cannot wait to expand my oil collection, and I can't wait to learn even more uses for them.



Also in other news (& if you've made it this far-I congratulate you!). . .

today is my 100th post & I am so excited about it!
I never thought I would make it past 50 posts, but I'm so glad that I stuck with it.
I've made such great friends & connections, I can't wait to see where the Southern Stylista goes with my next 100 posts!

Until next time. . .

  2. I've heard the nausea thing about peppermint. Definitely something to keep in mind when I'm full-on migraine!

    1. Definitely! I wouldn't have made it through the stomach virus without the peppermint (& the lemon was so fresh and actually made the house smell clean even when it definitely wasn't!)

  4. These sound great. I have really bad migraines and a few people have told me to try peppermint oil. I guess I'm going to have to finally get some! :)
