How peppermint essential oil changed the way I poop.

Disclaimer: I'm not a doctor. In fact, I have no medical experience whatsoever. That's why you shouldn't take any of my words on essential oils as medical advice. I'm simply sharing my experiences with essential oils and how we use them for our own health and in our home. Please use good judgement and seek medical advice from a professional for any ailment.

There are several essential oils that I use on the daily.

Like lavender and cedar wood. And Believe. And Deep Relief. (Because y'all know my whole body basically aches at the end of a long day of sitting with teachers, hunched over my laptop, right?)

There's another special oil that I use a couple times a week for a very specific purpose, and that's Young Living peppermint essential oil and I use it to help me poop.

Yep. We're going there. Let's just get all up in this topic, ok? It's important that we can talk about pooping without shame. I mean, we should be pooping every day for optimal health. Sometimes, whether it be due to poor diet, or stress, or lack of activity, or medications, or any variety of reasons...we just don't poop every day.

Can you imagine the discomfort? I can. I get bloated and constipated at the sight of dairy products! If I have a week of a really poor diet and no physical activity, it's not uncommon for me to go three days without pooping. THREE. DAYS.

I'll ask you again: Can you imagine the discomfort?!

That's where peppermint oil comes into play.

When I am feeling really cruddy, I simply rub some DiGize on my belly and lower back, then drop a couple drops of peppermint oil into the toilet bowl and have a seat.

That's it.

If things happen naturally, it's thanks to Young Living peppermint essential oil supporting my body's own functions.

Sometimes things don't happen naturally, which means I wait about an hour and repeat this process.

There are other ways people use peppermint essential oil to help them poop, but this method is not invasive at all, nor does it require any ingesting of oils or a diffuser. I would NOT recommend using any other brand of essential oil; you want the highest quality you can get your hands on, and that is Young Living.

Well, first I'd recommend learning more about the Young Living Wholesale Membership. If you're going to invest in some oils, you might as well get them at the wholesale price (24% off retail!). To set up your wholesale account, all you need to do is:

1. Go here and select "Member" to enter your informationIf prompted, enter this Sponsor/Enroller ID number1880846
2. Choose a starter kit. (When I started, I bought the Premium Starter Kit with Home Diffuser and am SO happy I did!)
3. Optional: Sign up for Essential Rewards, which is a monthly auto-ship program. This is totally optional, and you can choose to sign up for the monthly auto-ship later, if you want.
4. Once you enter your payment for your starter kit, you're set! Just sit back and relax until your kit is delivered.

If a wholesale account isn't for you, and you just want to order a few oils to get started, just go here to set up your retail account, then feel free to browse the products. If prompted, enter this Sponsor/Enroller ID number1880846


  1. Sometimes you have seasonal allergies and the best way to get rid of them is by using natural alternative like essential oils.
