This is the first of two peppermint oils I'm going to review. I don't know how that happened, but it is what it is. When these oils were taken out of the box I could immediately smell them. Whoo! The scent is powerful, which is something I'm fine with. It just means that the oils are concentrated and probably good quality.
I guess I'll start with peppermint oil, because why not? I love peppermint. I just love mint in general. It smells great. I used some carrier oil to rub peppermint on my arms and hands and it was nice. If you aren't interested in wearing a perfume but want to smell nice you really just need a drop or two and it'll do the trick. It is 100% steam distilled peppermint oil.
Peppermint oil is used for a variety of reasons like:
- Muscle pain
- Abdominal pain
Now lavender oil. I have to say, lavender isn't my favorite scent in the world, but many people like it and I like this oil for its benefits. It has a very strong scent as I mentioned but that shouldn't be a problem if you do the proper things.
Lavender oil benefits include:
- Reduces anxiety and stress (helpful for this college student)
- Improves sleep (helpful again)
- Heals burns and wounds
- Restores skin complexion and reduces acne
I recommend diluting these are they are pretty strong. It is my hope to perhaps make some mint lotion or lip balm with the peppermint and use the lavender for other things. I like these and am excited to continue using them. Quality product and packaging. The bottles are also quite large. See it here and here.
