Knowing it’s the real thing
Invigorating freshness that I know comes from the real thing - authentic peppermint and not a chemically produced scent. Wonderful powerful aroma throughout the home with key added benefit of peppermint’s proven ability to deter pests. Yes!

Having the right tool to diffuse is key. After researching diffusers for months, I found THE one, it’s from MiniDiva - nebulizing design for direct diffusion of essential oils (no heat, no water), modern look, mid priced, ease of use with zero waste interchangeability (simply unscrew off one EO bottle and screw on another), quiet operation, and flexible portability (unit can be used cordless or with it’s charge cord as needed). Has everything!

Also, RMO is trustworthy EO vendor with direct sales relationship to its customers. I call with a question, they answer the phone and answer my question. Every time. Especially helpful is Brittany whose taken many of my inquiries! I’ve sent many orders to friends & family who love it. Thank you RMO ~

Since there is an “organic” one now, are you saying this isn’t as pure?
Linh B 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.

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.

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.

Does this peppermint oil help with Hot Flashes??
Peanut on Aug 1, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dena!

Peppermint can create a cooling sensation when applied to the skin. Be sure to dilute it though because for some it can create a burning sensation which is definitely what no one wants to experience while having hot flashes. You can also apply it to any achy areas to help ease pain.

Thanks!

Is it safe to use peppermint oil in diffuser around dogs?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello!

At this time, we have found insufficient research about using essential oils on or around domestic animals, including procedures and possible reactions. Because of this lack of research, we are unable to advise how to use essential oils with pets.

For more information, we are happy to suggest some great books! Please see below:

- The Animal Desk Reference: Essential Oils for Animals, by Melissa Shelton, DVM
- Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals: A Comprehensive Guide to the Use of Essential Oils & Hydrosols with Animals, by Kristen Leigh Bell
