Dr Daniel, a world famous aromatherapy specialist told me that the French have used aromatherapy essential oils for over 1,500 years to help treat diseases and health problems. He advised that peppermint oil can be ingested (taken orally) if you know how to use it properly. In our training he used a few drops of peppermint essential oil on a cut piece of apple which had a very refreshing taste. We were also asked to rub peppermint oil into our feet which helps to increase the circulation in our bodies, as well as enhancing the immune system. Next time you have the flu try rubbing some peppermint oil into your feet and see how much better you feel. As peppermint oil increases allertness, try inhaling a small amount whilst you drive or burn it in your office to increase energy and aid concentration.
