P3-A Great Combo For An Olympian & Kiki

It’s so fun to see an Olympic Gold/ Silver Gymnast practicing the same routines that I do; too bad I didn’t realize at the age of 16, what Laurie Hernandez does!

Last night I was watching an interesting interview that Ryan Seacrest conducted with 2-time Olympian Laurie Hernandez, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that  she and I adhere to the same ancient and powerful methods to forge ahead in focus and wellness.  Yes, America’s sweet heart aka:  Laurie, Cutie, and or Human Emoji, before every routine, will take a whiff of the Peppermint Essential Oil, to focus herself, she will say a quick prayer and she reminds her self to push through the event no matter what.



The simple application, yet profound results of P3 is what makes Peppermint Essential Oil, Prayer and Push a winning discipline for anyone who wants to excel naturally.  On the subject of essential oils, while they have been around for 1,000’s of years, its just in the last decade that modern folk are catching on to their natural and healing advantages.



Dr Axe, one of my all-time favorite wellness experts, shares the benefits of applying the oil:

“Clinically speaking, peppermint oil is recommended for its anti-nausea benefits and soothing effects on the gastric lining and colon because of its ability to reduce muscle spasms.

Not only is peppermint one of the oldest European herbs used for medicinal purposes, other historical accounts date its use to ancient Chinese and Japanese folk medicine. It’s also mentioned in Greek mythology the nymph Mentha was transformed into an herb by Pluto who had fallen in love with her and wanted people to appreciate her for years to come.

The health benefits of peppermint oil as well as peppermint oil uses have been documented back to 1,000 BC and have been found in several Egyptian pyramids.”

What’s even more fantastic, is that yours truly gets to attend the global doTerra Convention in a few weeks in Salt Lake City, UT.  doTerra is a leading provider of the most therapeutic essential oils in the world, and I will be learning the latest and greatest research and findings with Essential Oils.  As a person, my life is better because I use essential oils.  As a wellness advocate, I will attend the convention so I can be up to date on important healing information that will continue to help me and others, and more importantly, I’ll be frequently posting from Utah to share with you—- so stay tuned for all the scoop.

It warms my heart to know that a role model and wildly successful and accomplished young lady (#LAURIE) exudes health, wellness and excellence via organic and spiritual disciplines.
