('Hibiscus' bottle shown - All bottles have similar design) Profile PeppermintPositive qualities:
Mindfulness, wakeful clarity, mental alertness.
Patterns of imbalance:
Dull or sluggish, especially mental lethargy; unbalanced metabolism which depletes mental forces.

Peppermint imparts alert clarity and mental vibrancy. Those who need this remedy have a soul struggle between the lower and upper parts of their being, especially between the metabolic/digestive forces and the thinking/creative forces. In these cases, the life of metabolic forces overwhelm the consciousness with too much warmth, making the mental capacity dull and lethargic. Peppermint flower essence is cooling and warming. It cools down the lower organs, especially the liver, so that the consciousness can be freed for higher activity. It also stimulates the thinking forces so that they have a "digestive capacity" of a higher nature, making the thinking more lively, vital, and penetrating.

Many people who need Peppermint flower essence have profound issues around eating and consciousness. They may crave the stimulation of food, only to find themselves sluggish and mentally incapacitated afterwards. It is as though two parts of the Self are warring for attention. Peppermint flower essence brings great healing and balancing energy, freeing the mind for higher thought, and helping the digestive life forces work in their proper sphere. Folklore held that Peppermint would enhance one's ability to dream of the future. Peppermint tea may be taken at bedtime to improve the mystical nature of one's dreams.

Peppermint works well with topaz and chalcedony and Peppermint oil can be placed where these gems are stored to keep their energies intact.
