DEPUFF THOSE EYES
- All natural remedy for swelling
- All natural remedy for fatigue and depression
On the mornings I wake up feeling like I was hit by a bus, I dab a drop or two of peppermint oil on my pillow and inhale slowly 5 times. You won't believe how something as simple as breathing in an oil will help wake you in a matter of seconds. For me, this oil is equivalent to a cup of coffee. Really! Except it feels and smells like you're in a spa. Who doesn't want to feel like they're in a spa?
Under Eye Bags:
For those dreaded bags or dark circles you get under your eyes, use peppermint oil while getting ready for work. When you get in the shower, let the steam develop before putting 4 to 5 drops of peppermint oil in the corners of your shower. The oil is picked up in the steam and naturally reduces swelling around your eyes. You've got to try it!
Mix a couple of drops of peppermint oil in a hot foot bath after a long day of being on your feet. Soak for 7-10 minutes to relieve swelling. You can also add a couple of drops of the oil to an unscented lotion to relieve swelling to any other part of the body.
Peppermint oil can be purchased online or at your local natural foods store. One little jar costs $10-$12 and will last you for a LOOONG time! Definitely worth the investment.
