Hot Flash, Hot Flash, Read All About It!

Some of you may think, what can a 43 year old know about hot flashes?  Believe it or not, a lot! After a hysterectomy two years ago, I have come to know hot flashes very well.  I know the minute they start coming on.
 But instead of running in the kitchen and trying to climb in the fridge, just make yourself up a simple, easy, solution to have with you at all times!

All you need is...
A small roller bottle 
Peppermint Essential Oil
Witch Hazel
 Fractionated Coconut Oil (these are optional)

I do about 40 to 60 drops of Peppermint, and an equal amount of Witch Hazel or FCO. 

You can do Peppermint Oil neat, but why use up all of your oil when you can make it last longer by mixing? 

Roll this wonderful solution on your forehead and the back of your neck. Within 15 minutes you feel a nice cooling sensation!

I keep a bottle in my purse, my gym bag and on my nightstand.  

This isn't just for Hot Flashes though, you can use it to cool down on a hot day!  It is like having your own personal air conditioner right at your finger tips!

Disclaimer: With any Essential Oil Use: Always test a small amount first for sensitivity or allergic reaction. If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult a physician.

Have a Happy and Healthy Day!
