Peppermint - one of those oils with a whole lot of benefits.
When digested, it promotes healthy respiratory function and clear breathing. When diffused, it can boost energy and alleviate anxious feelings. When used topically, it can stimulate circulation and relieve head tension and muscle fatigue OR cool your jets when you need that relief fast. I particularly love it when I am feeling too much tension from sitting indoors when all my people are outside having fun. Or feeling "computer shoulders" and it's creeping up the back of my neck to cause problems.
This leaping season of spring, give the gift of peppermint by making these yummy chocolate brownies. They’ll curb your sweet cravings, boost protein, and give you all the added benefits of Peppermint oil.
Bonus! Kids (even the big ones) love them, and you don't need any added sugar for this minty splash with the chocolate!
