Christmas with the PSK: Peppermint Vitality

Christmas and peppermint go together, don’t you think? I mean chocolate, candy canes, peppermint cocoa, minty lip balms and more!

Peppermint Vitality is included in your Premium Starter Kit. It is in our culinary line of essential oils, meaning it is meant as a dietary supplement which is safe for internal consumption, which also means FUN IN THE KITCHEN!!!

Let me share a few ideas with you, are you ready?

Sweet Treats

Let’s talk food! The above recipes are easy to make, absolutely delicious, tried and tested by yours truly! Whether you gift them to a loved one or bring to an office party, they are sure to be a hit!

Lip Smackin’ Lip Scrub

8 drops Peppermint essential oil

We made this Peppermint Lip Scrub last Christmas and it was such a hit! There are many different variations of DIY Lip Scrub that you can search the internet for, and no matter what recipe you decide on, let me just tell you they make the cutest stocking stuffers, gifts for friends, fun for the teen daughter and more! Oh, and made with ingredients that you can feel confident about, I mean hello…you can lick your lips and swallow the ingredients because they are made with items from the kitchen. Winning!

Let’s just say that you plan to make a bunch of lip balms for your friends; this one 5ml bottle of Peppermint Vitality bottle will go a very long way. If you were to assign this entire bottle to homemade lip scrubs using the recipe above, you could make around 11 batches. If using 10 gram/ml containers, it would make about +/- 60 containers.

Are you doing a holiday vendor event? These little lip scrubs could be sampled in 5 gram/ml containers which would stretch you to around +/- 130 little sample containers.

Peppermint Cocoa

A cute mug, with hot cocoa and a bottle of Peppermint Vitality

Another wonderful way to gift your bottle of Peppermint Vitality is by pairing it with a fun mug and a tin of hot cocoa!

Diffuser Blend/Room Spray

16. Candy Cane Suprise

While whipping up your goodies in the kitchen, or working to wrap gifts, be sure to pop on some Christmas music and elevate the mood with this incredible Candy Cane Surprise diffuser blend.

Did you know that you can take any diffuser blend and turn it into a room spray? You can! Simply add the desired amount to a glass or stainless steel spray/spritz bottle and fill with water! I recommend a pinch of salt or a little vegetable glycerin to help keep the essential oils evenly dispersed.

Healthy Intestines

We have been walking through a series discussing health and wellness that is focusing on cleansing the body. The first in the discussion was a gentle, total body cleanse called the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. From there we dove into the importance of a healthy colon. Today, we’ll move onto the intestines.

Function of the Small Intestine

The small intestine is part of the gastrointestinal tract following the stomach. It is where the vast majority of digestion takes place. There are three parts to the small intestine: duodenum, jejunum, and ileum.

Tongue-to-Bum-Part-5-Small-Intestine-–-Grand-Central-Station-of-Digestion-Dr.-Terry-Willard

In the duodenum fats are broken down by the bile secreted by the liver and gallbladder, carbohydrates are broken down by enzymes secreted by the pancreas and from the duodenum itself. Absorption into the blood stream of most of the nutrients takes place in the jejunum. The ileum finishes nutrient absorption and empties into the large intestine via the ileocecal valve. If the intestinal tract is not functioning properly, nutrients aren’t properly absorbed and delivered to the body amongst other things.

Intestinal Cleanse

Intestinal cleanses usually consist of fiber which helps to loosen and expel undigested and fermenting materials in the intestinal tract (this stuff, just sitting in our intestines, can prevent the body from absorbing necessary nutrients). Fiber moves along the intestinal tract like a brush scrubbing it clean but also as a sponge to absorb impurities and toxins as it moves it to the colon and out of the body. Let me share two companion supplements that work well together, ICP and Digest + Cleanse.

ICP™ helps keep your colon and intestinal tract clean with an advanced mix of fibers that scour out 3208residues. A healthy digestive system is important for the proper functioning of all other systems because it absorbs nutrients that are used throughout the body. ICP provides ingredients such as psyllium, oat bran, and flax and fennel seeds to form a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers. Enhanced with a special blend of essential oils, the fibers work to decrease the buildup of wastes, improve nutrient absorption, and help maintain a healthy heart.* ICP provides two grams of dietary fiber, one gram of soluble fiber, and one gram of insoluble fiber per serving.

 

3293Digest + Cleanse™ soothes gastrointestinal upset and supports healthy digestion.* Stress, overeating, and toxins can irritate the gastrointestinal system and cause cramps, gas, and nausea that interfere with the body’s natural digestive and detox functions. Supplementing with Digest + Cleanse will soothe the bowel, prevent gas, and stimulate stomach secretions, thus aiding digestion.* Digest + Cleanse is formulated with clinically proven and time-tested essential oils that work synergistically to help prevent occasional indigestion and abdominal pain.* Precision Delivery softgels release in the intestines for optimal absorption and targeted relief and to help prevent aftertaste.

Proprietary Digest + Cleanse; Blend (Peppermint (Mentha piperita)† leaf, Caraway (Carum carvi)† fruit, Lemon (Citrus limon)† peel, Ginger (Zingiber officinale)† root, Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)† seed, Anise (Pimpinella anisum)† fruit), Coconut (Cocus nucifera) meat oil [virgin], coconut (Cocus nucifera) meat oil [fractionated], gelatin, glycerin, and aqueous coating solution (oleic acid, sodium alginate, medium-chain fatty acids, ethylcellulose, and stearic acid).

†100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oil

Companion Oils

Capture

Peppermint has long been known for it’s digestive support.
