    I use it in the diffuser a’s my son’s favorite and I put it on him on a Sacred Arrow leather necklace so he can use it during the school day. I said to use if for deep breaths and to remind him that I am always for him no matter how hard it seems things are.

    I use 5 drops of peppermint vitality oil on a cotton ball and place them around the house.

    I use peppermint for a cooling effect on a hot day, peppermint vitality in my hot chocolate drink, and diffuse peppermint oil with orange for a refreshing aroma.

      I love peppermint by itself or with thieves Christmas spirit, or lemon in the diffuser

  • Susan August 21, 2016 - 6:58 am Reply

    One drop of peppermint in my tea is too strong. Any ideas of how to dilute it more.

    • Young Living August 29, 2016 - 7:20 am Reply

      Hi Susan, Great question! We recommend removing the rubber orifice of the bottle and dipping a toothpick into the oil. The toothpick can then be swirled into your tea. Thanks for stopping by!

      • Orange Gearle December 11, 2016 - 10:15 am Reply

        OMGOODNESS That is such a good idea!

    • Ruth Kirby January 2, 2017 - 5:38 am Reply

      You can use a toothpick dipped in the peppermint vitality oil to get less in your tea or coffee.

    Hello, I’m a newbie too for this YLEO thing..

    I read that Peppermint Vitality and traditional Peppermint are the same 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade -essential oil.

    Does that mean that traditional Peppermint could be used as dietary also?
    Because I have traditional Peppermint and I’ve been making tea with a drop of peppermint..
    It’s safe, right?

    • Young Living August 4, 2016 - 3:12 pm Reply

    Peppermint is one of my favorite Essential Oils. I used it for everything that’s why it’s the one oil that don’t linger in my home everybody uses it. I love putting a few drops in my Thieves Household Cleaner solution, and much more.

  • Leah May 16, 2016 - 7:01 pm Reply

    I’m a total newbie and just began with a Young Living starter kit. I received the peppermint Vitality oil. Does this mean that it can ONLY be used as a dietary supplement? It can not be used topically, or diluted as a spray? Does the same go for the whole Vitality line? Thanks:)

    We use Peppermint cooling spray (peppermint and water) at our annual high school summer band camp practices. It is well into the 90s by noon here in Texas and the kids love being spritzed. Bonus: It makes them smell a bit better too. LOL

      What is the recipe for the peppermint cooling spray, love to try this with my son at his next meet

    I add 2 drops to my shampoo each day to stimulate my scalp. It’s one of my favorite oils.

    I’m a newbie and just took my 5ml bottle of peppermint into the parks at Disney World! It was great! It was so amazing even my why-is-my-wife-getting-excited-about-oils husband became a believer! He started asking oil questions on the car ride home today! 😊

  • Jennifer Kelso April 22, 2016 - 9:44 am Reply

    I have read that peppermint can be used to help with motion sickness (car sickness). Would it be safe for me to apply this to the wrist area of my toddler (2 year old) without diluting it in a carrier oil?

    PEPPERMINT is awesome with so many benefits. Everyone should use it! I’ve used it to support my body and mind. Love it as a perfume over stress away. I always get comments! I drink peppermint vitality throughout the day in water. It’s awesome to use as a layering oil over other oils I use. My friends use it on their legs & backs. Peppermint vitality is great in baking. Wake, work, walk and wonderful OILS! There’s power in PEPPERMINT! God’s creation is for our benefit!
