Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint is a common flavor for foods and skin care products. There is a good reason for that. The smell of peppermint is pleasing and it has many beneficial properties.

Skip the retail store items and benefit from the essence of peppermint to get biggest impact. A single drop is all you’ll need for most uses. I add peppermint daily to my water. I’ve also used it in lotions, soaps and candles I’ve made. There are so many opportunities to use this oil and so many uses it is a must have for my home.
