Doterra’s New Supermint Blend: A Good Travel Companion!

SuperMint is the ultimate combination of pure mint essential oils.  It includes:  Peppermint, Japanese Mint, Bergamot Mint, and Spearmint.  Each of these oils provide targeted support for digestion and easing muscle tension, while providing  natural, healthy stimulation.   Combined they have a sharp, minty aroma which  is softened by sweet, herbal undertones.

SuperMint can be used aromatically, topically, and internally.  Topically, SuperMint offers a comforting, cooling sensation.   Use it if you are getting hot flashes or if it’s a hot summer day.  Apply it along the spine and back of the neck.  The Supermint blend should always be diluted with a carrier oil before topical application. Supermint Touch can be helpful for topical application because it’s prediluted and comes in a simple roller bottle.  If using Supermint for muscle aches and tension,  dilute and apply as needed (or use Supermint Touch as needed).  If wanting digestive support after a large meal or when trying new foods, dilute SuperMint with a carrier oil and gently massage into the abdomen for a soothing and comforting effect.  Or ingest 2-3 Supermint beadlets (described below)

Aromatically, the fresh aroma of Supermint provides a clarifying atmosphere wherein you’re more fully present with more pure intention.  This makes Supermint  a good morning oil.  Supermint is soothing while preparing for your day and lends  itself to alertness and ease.  The aroma has  energizing and uplifting effects.  You could reach for it again later in the day to get a midafternoon boost.  The aroma can also help contribute to feelings of clear, open airways.  In this case rub a few  drops of Supermint between your hands and cup loosely over your nose inhaling deeply.  If desired, or required, dilute and apply to neck and chest.

I like to keep a Supermint roller bottle in my car to help maintain awareness and safety.  The crisp  aroma is invigorating on a long drive.  Supermint can provide multiple benefits on the road.  In addition to  keeping one alert on lengthy excursions,  Supermint can be used proactively to ward off muscle tension that sometimes presents while driving.   I use Supermint across the back of my neck and shoulders to ward off muscle tension.  It’s also good if  you are prone to motion sickness.  The fresh aroma of Supermint is soothing during long car rides.  That’s a pretty good handful of reasons to  keep it  in the car.  It’s a handy travel companion!

Supermint is a great blend to incorporate into a massage.  It will provides a cooling sensation, increases blood flow, and reduces inflammation; all supporting the benefits of your massage.  In this case dilute the Supermint Blend with a carrier and apply prior to massage.

Supermint also comes in beadlets.  These are very small “pills” made  of a vegetable casing that holds 2 drops of the Supermint blend.  Beadlets provide a safe way to take Supermint internally as you swallow the beadlet and avoid any heat or discomfort that the pure mint may cause if you are sensitive to strong flavours.  I like to dissolve 1-2 beadlets in my mouth before swallowing.  It’s strong but I like it.  Supermint can be an effective way to freshen your breath.  Another good reason to have Supermint in the car!
