  • My natural pain reliever is peppermint tea or peppermint oil drops in warm water. You can get the peppermint oil drops from my store and they come in a handy small bottle that fits in your purse or your pocket. Really cool. You can also put it on your pulse point a few drops at a time beware if you get it close to your eyes you will have to bink a lot for a while because of the fumes. Ooo but it smells so good! Email me for my site. Or check out tne bottom of my home page for the link.
