I used to have a small bottle of peppermint oil that I would carry with me, and sniff occassionally hahaha. I know that seems very strange, and I'm sure people were wondering what the heck I was up to, but I loved it. In the time that I was doing this I was "seeing" things much more clearly in everyday life, picking up on much more that I was used to.

So yeah, peppermint... haha

Yes, peppermint is an energizer/pick-me-up! It's also quite good for alleviating nausea

Have you had any experience with an essence that helps you find deeper relaxation and easy sleep? Let me know, if you do. And yeah, peppermint is just great on everything. Bath lotion, ice cream, chocolate...

What earthprowler said... definitely lavender! In bath water is great, but can be rubbed into wrists or a drop put on jammie top so you get gentle wifts of it all night as you sleep. It really relaxes me. I find myrrh helpful for that, and for deepening meditation as well

Hi Spirit! I didn't know lavender was available in tea... I imagine it would be quite soothing! Do you find it at Health Food Stores? What is the taste like? I don't as a rule care for strong herbal teas.

I agree and while I don't do readings or anything of the sort, I am finding it helpful with regards to my CFS.

Yes you can buy lavender tea in the bulk section of the store, it doesn't taste very well so I put honey in it.

Have you tried Clary Sage for this? it is a relaxant and will help with sleep, the only thing being that you shouldn't drink before using it and that it should be used just before bed as it relaxes you so much you want to make sure you not doing anything like driving etc... afterwards.

You can either use as a massage oil, up to 6 drops per 10ml of carrier oil, in a bath, 6 drops dissolved in full fat milk, or a few (2/3) drops on a tissue and placed by your pillow before sleep.

Also, do not use if you are pregnant as it can bring on contractions.

I have had lots of good reports from this from clients.

Hope it helps, there are more if you would like as well...

Be carefull with peppermint oil... some people's skin is sensitive to it, and it can be an irritant. When using it directly on the skin, best to dilute it in a carrier oil. I like almond oil because it doesn't need to be refridgerated

As for relaxation, I have a friend who mixes lavender oil in her bath, turns the lights off, burns candles, plays soothing New Age music, and eats a bowl of ice cream with chocolate sauce..! She says it's got all the aspects of the womb, and thus is very reasurring and relaxing

Thumbs up

I love the smell of peppermint and am thinking of making my own peppermint oil with dried homegrown peppermint and a carrier oil.

Does anyone else dislike lavender or is it just me? There is something about the scent that I find repulsive.
