I started using peppermint oil about 5-6 yrs. ago. I had a discussion with a nutritionist i met at a seminar and she told me of the many uses of the oil.
The one i use it for most is to relieve my headaches by inhaling it thru the nose. It really clears out my sinuses and eliminates my headache. Have to warn you about keeping your eyes close during the inhale, major burn.
A doctor friend of mine says that it is the best peppermint he has ever used.

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 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.

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.

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
