I always start my day in exactly the same way, with a little drop of something that helps wake me up in the morning without a single cup of coffee.
This little drop may be small but it certainly packs a punch.
What am I talking about?
Something so concentrated, so powerful, so pure that you only need one drop of it to power your whole day.

Have you ever tried it?
Even if you have never actually used peppermint oil, no doubt you have eaten it before without even realising it.
If you’ve ever eaten mint candies, mint desserts, mint chewing gum, or even toothpaste (hopefully you are using a natural toothpaste if you’re actually swallowing it – otherwise you’d have to give poison control a call), then you will have eaten peppermint oil.
Peppermint oil is an essential oil extracted straight out of a mint leaf, and yes it’s just as edible as mint leaves are. (caution: see below)
I absolutely adore my peppermint oil and I use it for absolutely everything.
Everytime I’m feeling a bit sluggish, I breathe in some of this oil and I’m instantly perked up.
Or if I’m feeling hot and tired I pop a drop in my water and I’m instantly refreshed and raring to go.
I use it on my stomach every morning to help my digestion function better.
I get it out as soon as the wasps start swarming around me and they leave me, and my kids alone. They are particularly bad at this time of year here in Scotland.
I cool myself down with it when we’re abroad when the weather is hotter than I’m used to.
There are so so many reasons why I use peppermint oil numerous times every day.
But my favourite reason of all is to put it in my smoothies.
Mint choc chip smoothie anyone?
There is no need to get out the mint leaves when a drop or two of peppermint oil does the job in seconds, and the taste it amazingly crisp and clean. There’s nothing quite like it for giving your mind and body a powerful wake up call.
If you are curious about trying peppermint oil – I do have a word of caution…
Please make sure your essential oil is therapeutic and food grade, or you may end up ingesting something you shouldn’t. Most essential oils are diluted with a number of chemicals – even if they say 100% pure on the label. (legally they only have to contain 5% essential oil per bottle, so goodness knows what the other 95% is made up from)
So I encourage you to get peppermint oil that is actually 100% pure. If you are interested in getting yourself some more energy with some peppermint oil, I would love it if you used my link HERE.

p.s. tomorrow we’re delving more into my smoothie filler system that keeps the hunger away while you lose weight

Are you feeling run down and are struggling with ever increasing health problems?
Green Thickies new 7 Day Detox will help you drop a dress size, improve your skin, your energy will soar and you are going to be so in control and proud of yourself.
You won't go hungry on this diet ... And better yet - it actually requires minimal time in the kitchen.
Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
