How to use Peppermint essential oil [VIDEO]

It's going to be HOT in NYC, so it's the perfect day to try out PEPPERMINT essential oil!

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They have been used for centuries for their medical and therapeutic benefits: for example, to calm anxiety, aid in digestion, and improve mood. They are an integral part of my personal wellness routine and yoga practice.  doTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils represent the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today.

doTERRA essential oils can be used one of three ways:
- Topically
- Aromatically
- Internally**

**Note: not ALL essential oils can be taken internally. I only recommend the doTERRA oils as they are CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. The oils that are safe to take internally will say 'Supplement' on the bottle itself.

Iced Mint Matcha Latte

Whenever I have clients that are looking to get off coffee, I recommend matcha tea. Matcha tea powder is made from finely ground green tea leaves - not only do you get all of the benefits of green tea, but you also get clear, focused energy (and no jitters like some people experience with coffee). Traditionally, you whisk matcha powder with boiling water to make a frothy, hot drink, but this recipe simplifies the process for all you busy folks on the go! You can double (or triple) the recipe and keep the mixture in the fridge to enjoy all week, just make sure to give it a quick mix each time as the matcha may naturally settle to the bottom of your jar or container.

**Note: If you use an essential oil for this recipe I recommend using doTERRA essential oils as they are certified therapeutic grade, which means they are of a high enough quality that is safe for internal consumption. Not all essential oils are meant to be taken internally so make sure you check the label before using (which should say 'essential oil supplement')
