Did you know a drop of Peppermint essential oil has about as much peppermint power as 28 cups of peppermint tea?

Peppermint has power to block pain receptors in the brain. Specifically, it is known to block Substance P, which shows up in large amounts in people who have Fibromyalgia. I am wondering, has anyone out there with Fibromyalgia tried Peppermint essential oil specifically to ease their symptoms???

Please send a comment if you’ve tried Peppermint with Fibromyalgia symptoms and letting me know your results.
