Love It!
We have used this to deter ticks while trimming trees & to deter ants in the house. I like it better than "bug off" for the smell.

Love this one!
Fantastic, multi-purpose oil—added it to an unscented lotion for sore muscles, diffuse it (not around the baby!) for an energy boost, and dab it on my nose for congestion!

was very disappointed. Not a good crisp smell. Barely any fragrance and it doesn't really smell like peppermint. I'm usually very satisfied with your oils but not this time.

We really do love peppermint oil during this sick season. Nothing like just having a fresh scent and one that helps clear up a stuffy nose is awesome!

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.
Can I use peppermint directly on temples for migraine? Or should I️ use a carrier oil?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Generally, you should always use a carrier oil, as EO's can be very strong. However, I have been known to put one (1) single drop of Peppermint oil on my left index finger, then put my right index finger on top of it, then massage my temples when I've had migrains. works well. Also, an instructor of mine will put a 'single drop' of this oil on the tip of her tongue and use as a breath freshner. Oil MUST be pure, not synthetic.
Good luck !
Can you use for baking?

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.

How do you make a spray bottle solution with the peppermint oil?
Shannon H on Jan 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is a general mist spray recipe that some customers follow.

Mist Spray
75 drops (choice essential oil)
4 ounces Distilled Water
Add ingredients to a 4 ounce, fine mist spray bottle and shake well before every use. Liberally spritz the room as needed. Can refill the water 2-3 times before needing to refill the oil.

Thanks!

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.
