This incredible recipe is one of my staples when I teach my essential oil classes. There is extensive research about the benefits of peppermint oil.

Some of the most common peppermint oil uses include:

  • Reduces stomach aches
  • Soothe digestive issues
  • Freshens bad breath
  • Relieves headaches
  • Antimicrobial properties
  • Improves mental focus
  • Clears respiratory tract
  • Boosts energy
  • Releases tight muscles
  • Cost-effective natural solution to replace pharmaceutical drugs

I cannot honestly think of one reason why anyone on the planet would choose not to have peppermint oil in his or her medicine cabinet at home!

So I created this gorgeous recipe. Even if you are not a fan of chocolate and peppermint, I wasn't, this is seriously incredible!

Ingredients:

2 tbs raw cacao powder

3 drops peppermint essential oil, certified to be used internally

1 tbs almond butter

2 tbs almond meal or flour

6 dates

1tsp coconut oil melted

 

Method:

Start by blending the dates and the coconut oil so that you have a soft mixture. Then add the almond butter and pulse a bit more. Add all the other ingredients until you have a dough. Once everything is mixed together roll small balls with your hands. Dust the balls with cacao powder and place in the fridge.
