Long time readers, remember Marcy? Well, here's a little update. Some of you may recall that Marcy has MS of which one of the symptoms is sensitivity to heat. During a massage, I employed the use of therapeutic peppermint oil on Marcy's abdomen and back, applying the principle of cooling core body temperature as I've done in the past with my six year old daughter.
On the rare occasion when my daughter develops a fever, I apply peppermint oil on her feet (she's not particularly fond of the scent and the pores of the feet absorb readily) which helps pull down the temperature whereby allowing her body to heal itself. There's no need for fever medication and no worry about her fever escalating to dangerous levels for me when I take this approach.
Marcy experienced relief from her elevated body temperature after that massage and has since used peppermint oil to help keep things in check. Marcy writes:
"YES, the Peppermint oil is WONDERFUL! I put it on with my lotion after I shower at the gym ( where I'm so hot) I put it on around 10am and It's 10:45am now and I still feel it! Thank you, Thank you! LOVE IT!"
"I had another wonderful experience today. I put it on my legs, belly and arms! Also introduced it to a friend of mine who also has MS and heat issues! Yes, Yes, Yes.. It's wonderful! Thank you, Thank you!"
Thank you, Marcy, for sharing your experience with the OneHealthyGirl.com readers. I hope you are able to continue finding relief using all natural, life and health supporting therapeutic essential oils.
Live Light, xo-C.
