Connection with Spirit can be experienced in so many ways. Whether it be in meditation, a walk in the woods connecting to nature, tapping into universal energy for inspiration or even just sitting in silence to connect with your higher self or your inner voice.

However you are wanting to connect, Amethyst and Peppermint together can enhance and heighten that experience for you! doTERRA's Peppermint has the highest content of menthol I have ever experienced. You have to try it and all tips below! You will love them!

Here are Three Ways to Add a Little

Amethyst and Peppermint into Your Daily Life:

    You can add both to your Ultrasonic Diffuser. Your room will not only be filled with the beautiful fragrance and energy of pure and fresh Peppermint, but also the powerful energy of  Amethyst as well! The Synergy of these two Gifts of the Earth is fantastic!

    Here's what you do...
    Before filling your diffuser with water place larger pieces of Amethyst on the outside edges of the inside drum of your diffuser. Fill with water and add 2-4 drops of doTTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil and turn on your diffuser and enjoy!

    * Want to add on to this recipe for connection? Add doTERRA Wild Orange and carnelian to your diffuser with Peppermint and Amethyst. Wild orange and carnelian are both fire elements that will elevate your experience with the two air elements (Amethyst & Peppermint) by increasing joy, vitality, creativity and uplift your energy. And it smells amazing!

    No diffuser, no problem...

    You can add Peppermint to your lava stone bracelet (apply peppermint to your fingers and rub onto the beads) add Amethyst to your body... pocket stone, stack your lava stone bracelet with an amethyst bracelet, wear a pendant or amethyst in a stone cage with a lava stone bracelet or necklace. The important thing is that they are both in your auric field.

    You can create a roller blend with mini amethyst in the bottom of a 10ml roller with 10-30 drops of Peppermint. You can roll this on to your pulse points, any chakra that is in need of support or any part of your body that is holding tension. Because it is great at helping us release tension it is perfect for any discomfort you feel in your neck, shoulders, forehead, muscles, joints etc.

    On of my favorite ways to use peppermint (and there are many!) is in meditation. But here's something I bet you haven't tried before...

    I Love This!!! You Must Try this!!!
    In the shower, after you have washed your face and body, wash and rinse your hair, squeeze all excess water out of your hair. Then put a dollop of condition in the palm of your hand (preferably a natural product) add 2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil to the Conditioner. Mix together, then apply to your scalp and the rest of your hair. Taking care not to get any in your eyes (if you do, use oil not water to wick out). Wrap your hair in a towel, dry off and settle in to a comfortable place to sit, place a piece of amethyst in each hand and enjoy your favorite meditation.

    This is the perfect time to get clarity on something that has been on your mind or guidance on finding your way forward. You have to try this! And please let me know when you do. I would love to hear about your experience!

    I only recommend taking oils internally, with doTERRA Essential Oils. I know exactly what is and isn't in their oils. I can't speak for any other company. I just know that doTERRA's are Certified, Pure, Tested Grade and I know from all the testing they do in house and externally, as well as my first had experience with them, how amazing they are. Nothing I have tried comes close to their quality, potency and energy!

    You may already know about adding crystals to your water and all its benefits, but have you tried adding essential oils to your crystal water?

    First... You must use glass or stainless steel containers only. Some essential oils will break down plastic, and you don't want plastic toxins going into your body. And second always physically (with a natural cleaner and energetically clean your Amethyst and Peppermint by placing them on a Selenite plate or utilize your preferred energy cleansing method.

    In Your Water
    To enjoy the synergistic energy of Amethyst and Peppermint is very simple but can be done in a variety of ways, depending on what you have available to you. If you have a special glass container that you are able to add crystals to perfect. Go ahead and use that. If not place your amethyst at the bottom of a vessel and let it "Crystalize" your water! Trust your intuition to know when it is ready for you to drink.

    When your water is ready, you can do one of two things. You can add a few drops to your container or you can do my preferred method... filling a shot glass with the Amethyst Water, then adding 2 drops of peppermint to the shot glass. I want the full potency of the oils, and believe that they loose their strength if they sit in a container. Essential oils dissipate quite quickly into the air if they are not in a carrier oil or other liquid other than water to contain them. So that's why I prefer a shot glass.

    The other awesome benefit of taking peppermint internally, is the calming and soothing effect it has on our tummies. Peppermint has been used for hundreds of years to calm upset stomaches. For queasiness, motion sickness and even acidity in the belly. So many incredible way Peppermint support us.

    Roof of Your Mouth for Meditation, Clear Airway & Fresh Breath
    This little tip is a 3 for 1! It opens up your third eye and crown charkas, opens up all your airways, sinuses and respiratory and freshens your breath at the same time!

    In the palm of your left hand, add one drop of doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil. Take your right thumb and dip it into the drop of oil. Take your thumb and put it on the roof of your mouth and hold it there for 10-15 seconds. With the remain oil in your left hand, rub your hands together, then cup your hands together and not too close to your face, breathe in, move as close to your nose that is comfortable. Breathe in 5-6 times, then rub your hands on your chest and the back of your neck. Pick up your amethyst and begin your meditation.

    This method is great if you don't have time to meditate after your shower, or your practice is at a different time of day.

    Be sure to not touch your eyes. If you do, remember, oil and water do not mix, you must use oil (fractionated coconut oil or olive oil) to wick the essential oil out with a tissue.

About My Experience with Essential Oils
I have been using Essential Oils since the 80's and not since the first years of the Body Shop have I experienced such pure and potent essential oils as I have with doTERRA! I have spent months researching & working with essential oils and combining them with crystals and have learned and experienced so much.

I am now teaching classes to share all of this with you. I will be posting about them but am in the process of catching up with all the promotional materials I now need to create.

So if you are interested in learning more, send me a text or email about what you are interested in, chances are very good that I will have a class to share with you!
