Today is the 7th day of the 12 days of Christmas Reviews & Giveaways 2012!

On the 7th day of Christmas, day2day joys gave to me…

An awesome giveaway from Mary of The Encouraging Home, a Young Living Essential Oils consultant with a heart to share about the health benefits from using these oils.

Like I told you a couple days ago that I got to meet Stacy author of Crock On, I also got to meet Mary. She is a genuine, nice person with a serving heart that wants to help people. She told me about essential oils and how they can benefit your health. She gave me some to try and is giving one of you the peppermint oil!

A little bit about Peppermint Oil:
 I am still learning about essential oils but Mary said this, “My favorite things about the Peppermint Oil is drinking to boost immune system and soothe an upset tummy, smell for energy, and rubbing on upset tummy=almost instant relief. For headache relief, put on temples, forehead and back of neck, also for a natural fever reducer put on the bottom of feet and navel.”

Now for my review:

What I Liked:

  1. The peppermint oils is very potent
  2. The oils are pure enough to be ingested
  3. They give you a natural alternative to prevent & help ailments or sicknesses rather than using medicine.
  4. The are all natural and help build your immune system

  1. They are a bit pricey but you get what you pay for!
