It is also a natural diuretic and has been used to relieve IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and colitis. The oil may reduce and relieve the pain of hemorrhoids.
Herbalists believe inhaling mint oil incense helps open the mind and calms the nerves. It has some antioxidant properties and can be used as an anti-itch relief for bug bites or other skin irritations.
Mint can be served as a garnish or dried and crumbled into cold summer soups. It enlivens summer fruit salads.
Dried mint is a natural air freshener and can be boiled as a potpourri.

Candace Newman, the Essential Oil Lady, offers these summer mint tips:
Keep a bottle of Peppermint with you during the day for direct inhalation. Good: energetic menthol lift, clear brain fog & fatigue, increase focus, sinus or headache & digestion relief.
Mint is antibacterial, antispasmodic, antiviral but if using essential oils they are strong so be careful as they may irritate skin if applied directly, always blend with base oil.
Mint for Travel Too

Summer Wealth Tip
You can earn extra income selling essential oils.
Over our 40 years of business, Merri and I have worked with and used the products and services of a number of wonderful businesses. Each has a unique product or service that we love. These companies are headquartered in many places… Switzerland, Denmark, Ecuador, Spain, Canada as well as the USA and all of them offer global potential… business opportunity almost anywhere.
We write about many of the products of these companies often… though we are not paid.. just because we like their products and hope you’ll enjoy them too.
We have started a program to help our readers create their own micro businesses working with these companies as referrers, dealers and distributors.
What a match… tens of thousands of readers, many wanting to earn globally… meeting some great entrepreneurs … really unique global businesses tied together with our communication system that can bring all this: training…. communicating and networking.
We are starting with these five businesses first.
#1: Jyske Global Asset Management (JGAM)
#2: Bio Wash
#3: Candace Newman Essential Oils
#5: Ecuador Imbabura Export Products
After attending our International Business and investing seminar on October 7-8-9, you will can qualify to work as a distributor and dealer with our programs any may be able to work with one of these businesses.
Enrolling in any of our online business development courses and attending one seminar provides full qualification to apply for all programs we provide for a year.
One specific way you can tap into this program is as an Ecuador oil distributor working with Candace Newman. When it comes to essentials oils, caring and using their healing effects… Candace is the best. Merri and I have used her oils and blends for decades.
How our International Business Program works.
We provide three online e-courses that can help you develop your own micro business that we designed to help you earn anywhere you live in the world.
We have started the beta program and are focusing our International Business Made EZ online course and our International Business Made EZ seminars to help subscribers create a turnkey businesses.
The overall service can bring you the following benefits:
#1: Connect you via our our online course “International Business Made EZ” to here and now specific business opportunities.
#2: Keep you in touch with other readers in the program, share business tips, ideas contacts and even website support in some instances.
Part of the turnkey earning program is designed so we can help essential oil distributors by referring readers in their locale to them. So for example if a referrer is in Miami, we will send special emails to our readers in that area, help organize mini seminars… etc.
We can zero in as close as 20 miles to a location so for example we can send a separate email to every reader within 20 miles of the address of a referrer. And although we won’t release the names in that area, we can send them a note of the opportunity.
We will also provide a referrer communication forum and update training as well as portfolio and investing ideas. We have general plans at this stage but find the best way to develop systems is to refine through action. We expect our beta program this year to clarify how we can best help our readers become referrers and how we can help them succeed.
Here is how the seven step turnkey global business program works:
Step one: Order at least one of the online courses.
Step two: Complete the course within 30 days. If at this stage you are not satisfied you can stop the program for a full refund.
Step three: Attend an International Investing and Business Seminar where you review all your turnkey business opportunities and complete your initial training at the seminar.
Step four: We put you in touch with the businesses you choose.
Step five: You complete the training the business provides.
Step six: We help you with our turnkey business systems such as our “Natural Reminder” service.
Step seven: We provide communication… ideas.. business tips and updates to help each reader who participates.
