You can also drink peppermint oil if you struggle with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is also a great way to get rid of bad breath! If you prefer to use a diffuser, peppermint oil is a great choice for calming your mind and helping you focus. It is great for clearing up respiratory infections. Peppermint oil can also be added to a carrier oil and sprayed in the outdoors to keep mosquitos away!

Oregano Oil

You might think of oregano as just a spice in your cabinet, but its oil can be used in a variety of ways to increase your health. Oregano oil is not from a relative to the cooking herb called origanum vulgare. Oregano oil can be applied topically to help with many different ailments. It is a natural antibiotic and can be used to treat infections, as well as soothe inflammation. It can also be applied to help with acne, rosacea, varicose veins and even warts. Oregano oil can also be digested. It can help improve your gut health and even lower your cholesterol. Oregano can also help speed up your weight loss when added to a healthy diet.  

Lugols Iodine

Lugols Iodine is actually an iodine solution made of potassium iodine and iodine diluted in distilled water. Iodine has been used for hundreds of years for medicinal purposes. This solution was first created in 1829 by a French physician Jacques Lugol. Lugol’s iodine can be used to treat hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. It can also be used as a disinfectant.
