Today we're releasing the new Body Care page under the Self Care tab! This page is dedicated to hosting natural remedies and tips on how to care for your physical body, including energy medicine techniques, home recipes for asthma, and our brand new article by Kira G. on 6 Reasons to Use Peppermint Oil the Next Time You Smoke.
This peppermint oil trick has been a lifesaver for me.
I have asthma, so smoking can be really hard on my lungs. I really don't care much for joints or blunts because of how smoky they are, and pipes can be harsh and leave me coughing up a storm. My preferred way to smoke bud is via a water bong, but even that has been giving me issues ever since I switched to dabs a couple years back, which have far less smoke and contaminants.
Using peppermint oil on my pieces smoothes and cools the hit so that my lungs aren't mad at me.
I was amazed the first time Kira handed me her peppermint-coated steamroller. Before this little trick, I would be left coughing and tapping out of the rotation. Now, I don't even wince.
Cannabis Connoisseurs: Be Warned
While this is a fabulous trick for people who have issues with smoke, the peppermint oil does over-power the flavor of your cannabis. Since it's either don't smoke at all or smoke with peppermint oil for me, I don't mind this at all — but if you are someone who enjoys truly tasting the flavors of your buds, be aware that you might not care much for this trick (although we still think you should try it at least once — don't knock it til you try it!).
Pause to reflect on these questions:
- In what areas of my body am I holding tension or stress?
- What emotions am I dealing with that could be causing this stress?
- Is there anything I'm currently doing that might be causing my body harm? (ie. smoking when you have asthma)
- What steps can I take to relieve this stress? (Think nutrition, fitness, rejuvenation, responsibility, sleep)
