Another one of my favorite oils. I will not leave home without my peppermint. I like to use it with a carrier oil on my wrist to help ease my carpal tunnel pain, or any kind of swelling. I use it also if I feel a headache coming on, and diffusing this with lavender is the bomb!

Works well and smells great too!
Great stuff! Smells Devine! I use it to make a peppermint lavender spray that I mist onto my 6 year old's hair every morning to prevent lice at school.... supposedly lice don't like the smell of peppermint or lavender....... I also use it to make my own tick prevention bug spray that we use before we go outside to play daily! Thank you RMO for the EXCELLENT FAST AND FREE SHIPPING and the SUPERIOR customer service!

We love peppermint oil for sinus congestion. I diffuse it in our diffusers and I also blend it with jojoba oil and rub a small about on our faces near the sinus cavity. We also like to massage peppermint oil on our scalps. It is relaxing and gives the scalp a little tingling feeling.

Is this oil ingestable?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic, and therefore of the quality you can ingest if you choose to do so. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so. If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.
Does it help to relieve mosquito bites?
Dawn P on Oct 2, 2017
