Peppermint and Lavenger Essential Oils {Product Review}

 Hello girlies! Tonight I am writing a review on peppermint and lavender essential oils from Insta Natural. I received this product in exchange for my honest review.

 There has been a growing interest in essential oils within the last few years and I've been itching for a chance to get into it and see what they were like. I've heard so many positives about them and what they can do for you that when I had the chance to review some I jumped at it. Now, originally this was to include lemon essential oil, but they had some manufacturing issues so were only able to send the peppermint and lavender.

 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:
  • Nausea
  • Indigestion
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Etc.   
 Really, people use the stuff for a variety of different reasons, so it's pretty cool.

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
  • Etc.
 Lavender oil has a ton of benefits that are just a bit jaw dropping. I plan on using it in most of the ways I listed here. Pretty amazing and powerful stuff.

 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.

  1. I've wanted to get into essential oils for quite a bit now, and I think you've convinced me! I love the smell of the oils and the benefits definitely outweigh any con they might have in my opinion. :)


  2. Awesome! Leah, who also writes on here, and a couple of others have some first hand experience on them and say they are really great.
