My favorite oil for freshness
This is a fantastic peppermint oil. We use it for headaches, foggy brain, air freshener, and added to a couple other ingredients to make furniture freshener.

Best Oil for Sleeping
I have used Peppermint for almost everything including diffusing it. I decided to put it in my diffuser one night and I went to sleep very quickly and usually it can take almost an hour before I settle down to sleep. Who knew this oil was great for a sound relaxing sleep? Well I do now and it's better then most oils that are made for sleepig.

Can I use peppermint directly on temples for migraine? Or should I️ use a carrier oil?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Anytime you are trying an oil for the first time we do recommend diluting the oil further.
I would suggest starting with 1/2 teaspoon carrier oil for 1-3 drops of the blend. Once you have tried this you can increase or decrease as needed.

Thanks-

Is it safe to diffuse around children?
Carol on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We would not recommend using it around children under the age of 6 years. However, diffusion is known to be one of the safest ways to use essential oils. You should feel safe diffusing, but we would recommend keeping the children away from the direct mist in the diffuser.

Since there’s is an “organic” one now, are you guys saying your regular isn’t as pure?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All of our essential oils are 100% pure, natural and organically grown. They are GMO-Free, GC/MS and Pesticide tested. However, until now, we have not had government USDA Certified Organic oils. Certifying essential oils as organic is a very long, expensive and extensive process.
We have heard our customers requests to bring some USDA Organic oils into our product line and we are starting with these 6 to see how they do. We hope you enjoy them and if you have any further questions, please visit our Organic FAQ page on the website.
