Cardamom is a popular essential oil because of its spicy aroma as well as its uplifting and calming benefits. It is one of the traditional warming oils that may be familiar to many because of its uses in the culinary world, including the exotic Turkish coffee. If you have kids at home, it’s a fantastic option for adding a subtle spice to your blends.

 

Calms an Upset Stomach

Getting car sick (or plane sick or seasick) is one of the worst feelings to get while you’re traveling. Cardamom is one of several essential oils that can help calm your stomach and ease your nausea. Diluting it in a carrier oil and applying topically to your stomach is a great place to start. But it’s not always an option when you’re stuck in the middle seat of a crowded plane. Instead, personal aromatherapy inhalers are a simple and easy way to take advantage of the benefits of essentials oils. Our Tummy Troubles Inhaler Blend uses three powerhouse oils to help combat an upset stomach: Cardamom, Ginger, and Peppermint. You can prepare it ahead of time and have it ready for at the first sign of turbulence.

 

Sets the Mood

Have a romantic night planned soon? All you need is some candlelight, maybe some rose petals, and Cardamom! This exotic and spicy oil helps set a romantic mood and inspires sensuality. Many consider it to be an aphrodisiac. Next time you plan a special night with your special someone, add Cardamom to your diffuser blend. You can even whip up some Aphrodisiac Linen Spray DIY for a romantic blend of Bergamot, Coriander, Sweet Orange and Cardamom.

 

Uplifts the Emotions

Feeling down? Add Cardamom to your collection of uplifting oils. Not only does it blend well with other happy oils like Sweet Orange and Bergamot, but it’s also stimulating. This makes it a fantastic choice for stressful or trying days when you just have to keep going. Or try the Comforting Spice Diffuser Blend to fill your home with the warm, comforting aromas of Cardamom, Clove, and Myrrh.

 

Supports the Respiratory System

If seasonal allergies or sicknesses have been bothering you, try adding Cardamom to help ease your breathing and support a healthy respiratory system. For an exceptionally invigorating and clearing diffuser blend, add three drops Eucalyptus Globulus, two drops Cardamom, and two drops Pine Scots to your diffuser.

Everything You Can Do With Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil is one of the most popular essential oils for beginners and seasoned pros alike. Its refreshing and stimulating aroma is instantly familiar. This little oil boasts a wide variety of uses and benefits. Let’s dive in!

 

Cooling Effect

Plant Therapy Peppermint Essential Oil

One of the most interesting things about Peppermint is the cooling effect it creates on your skin when applied topically. Interestingly, this phenomenon doesn’t actually cool down your skin. Instead, the menthol content in Peppermint interacts with the cold-sensitive  TRPM8 receptors in the skin, which then tell your brain that the menthol is cold when it’s actually not. Eucalyptol is another chemical constituent that can create a cooling effect.

This effect is certainly pleasant in and of itself. But using Peppermint topically can also help ease head and neck tension. Try diluting Peppermint to 5% in a roll-on bottle so you can apply it to your temples or neck next time you feel a headache coming on. It’s also great for muscle aches and strains. Combine four drops of Peppermint with six drops of Rosemary in one ounce of carrier oil or unscented lotion. Massage onto the area of concern for relief. And finally, for a soothing and invigorating foot soak at the end of a long day, add a few drops to a teaspoon of carrier oil and ½ cup of Epsom salt dissolved in warm water.

Peppermint’s cooling nature is also especially helpful for itchy, irritated and hot skin. For extra skin-soothing benefits, try diluting Peppermint in our Aloe Jelly!

 

Energy and Alertness

Peppermint essential oil from Plant Therapy

For a quick burst of energy whenever you need it, reach for Peppermint. Its fresh, cool and unmistakable aroma will invigorate your mind and body. It promotes energy and alertness, making it perfect for any time of the day. Bring it out bright and early in the morning, during that unfortunate afternoon slump, or once you make it back home to the family after a long day. Diffuse it or add about four drops to a teaspoon of carrier oil and rub onto your wrists to enjoy the aroma.

 

Cleaning Tool

This minty fresh essential oil has powerful cleansing properties with a cooling fragrance that smells fantastic in the bathroom or the kitchen. It is effective against a wide range of germs at a dilution of 1%.  It makes a great choice for cleaning up after preparing your family’s dinner. Peppermint’s invigorating and brain-energizing qualities also make it a great cleaning choice to help prevent the inevitable slump after you’ve cleaning for a while.

 

Tummy Troubles

Peppermint is also excellent for helping with nausea, carsickness and general stomach issues.  It helps relax the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract so that you can get on properly digesting. And for any time you’re feeling sick to your stomach or nauseated, you can dilute Peppermint in a carrier oil and apply it directly to your stomach. Or whip up our Tummy Troubles Inhaler Blend to have on your next plane, train or automobile trip.

For kids that love the idea of catching Santa delivering presents on Christmas Eve, sleeping under the tree is a special treat! They get to put out cookies and milk and try their very best to stay awake while they stare at the twinkly lights of the tree.

To help them fall asleep and get a good night’s rest before the day’s festivities, try adding Nighty Night or Sweet Slumber to a diffuser in the living room. Or if you have clay ornaments, you can add a few drops of your sleep blend to help them drift off.
