PEPPERMINT has a wonderful cooling effect. Use it to help with hot flashes, fevers, itching, or burns. For hot flashes, you can apply the oil to the bottoms of your feet and rub your feet together to blend in. Or, you can apply on to your scalp, behind your ears, or on the back of your neck. Peppermint is also a rapid fever reducer. It will bring a fever down much faster than oral medication. Give it a try next time someone is sick with a dangerously high fever.
