Lemongrass and Peppermint (essential oils that is)
We've got some new and exciting things in the works and can't wait to share them with you! BUT before we get to that, let's talk lemongrass, and peppermint too :-) We've been studying up on essential oils and wanted to share a couple of our favorites and why we love them:
LEMONGRASS is healing in so many ways: It helps with circulation, is an analgesic, which helps reduce pain and inflammation, antibacterial, antiseptic (great for wounds), an astringent, smells awesome and works amazingly in deodorant (which is even more awesome if you have teenagers). Lemongrass also happens to be my (Amy) favorite scent.
PEPPERMINT treats indigestion, nausea, respiratory problem, gets rid of headaches, body aches and fever, is a great flavoring agent, contains vitamins A, C and Omega 3, eliminates bad breath and has antibacterial components. I love this stuff in toothpaste (homemade of course), hand soap and as a natural air freshener.
and our surprise will be in an upcoming post REALLY soon :-)
