Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peppermint Arvensis Essential Oil 10ml - 100% Pure (Personal Care)
I just love this smell! When I had the start of a cold I mixed a few drops each of Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree essential oils (all from Mystic Moments) and it was so lovely and refreshing. It cleared my airways and I could feel it in my chest all warming and cooling at the same time. I also used a couple of drops of this in my homemade toothpaste!
In an oil burner it helps with headaches, nausea and concentration. Also supposed to be good as an insect repellant although we don't really suffer with lots of insects so I have no idea whether this is true.
Peppermint essential oil has many other benefits like to help with cramps, back pain, IBS, circulation, rheumatism, mental fatigue and gum infections to name but a few (Each of these will need their own recipe, don't put it neat on your skin!), but I am unsure as to whether this brand is therapeutic grade due to the price and that it doesn't say it is. If you want to use it for these things then I would suggest you contact the supplier and find out because if it isn't you won't get the full benefit. But if you are just looking for a cheap oil for a starter and something to help with clearing your airways and something to smell refreshing in your oil burner then this is great and you don't need to spend more.
Incidently, the oils it blends well with are tea tree and eucalyptus (as I mentioned above), lavender and rosemary. These are the ones I have tried but it also blends well with lemon, marjoram and benzoin apparently.
This is a great oil to experiment with.
