Our expert says:
Peppermint oil has long been used to treat hot flashes associated with menopause. The best way to use peppermint oil for this purpose is to mix (preferably in a spray bottle) 30 ml of water, 5-7 ml of an odorless alcohol like vodka, and 10 to 15 drops of peppermint oil, and shake the contents. Whenever a hot flash comes on, sprinkle/spray the mixture over your body. This will almost immediately begin to cool you down.
