The use of essential oils internally is an edgy topic and this is a gentle reminder, we are not doctors, scientist, rocket scientists or even bartenders!

it reminds me of my grandma, Daisy – she always had peppermint patties for me when I visited.



1 1/2 oz chocolate vodka

2 drops dōTERRA peppermint essential oil

1/2 oz vanilla syrup

drizzle of chocolate around inside of glass rim

candy cane or peppermint patty for garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka, peppermint oil and vanilla syrup and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a candy cane or peppermint patty.

Here is the Peppermint Black Bean Brownie recipe we talked about on the pod:

Black bean brownies are a delicious and nutritious twist to a traditional chocolate brownie. You might be nervous about baking with black beans, but don't be--they have a very mild flavor and are extremely rich, creamy, and full of protein. You can also boost the flavor of your brownie with essential oils such as Peppermint, Wild Orange, Cinnamon, or even Lavender.


1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 large eggs

1/4 cup cocoa powder

2/3 cup honey

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

4 drops Peppermint essential oil

3/4 cup chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Place all ingredients, except for chocolate chips, in blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

  3. Pour batter into large bowl and stir in ½ cup chocolate chips.

  4. Pour into greased 8x8-inch pan and top with ¼ cup chocolate chips.

  5. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
