InstaNatural Peppermint Essential Oil & Lemon Essential Oil | Review




-PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL-
I have used peppermint oil in the past for many beauty related items, such as creams, lotions, etc. This time I decided to use it in my home, and use it with a reed diffuser. Within minutes of adding a few drops, I can already start to smell the peppermint. Let a few hours pass, and it is heavenly! I enjoy using this in the bathroom, its a great way to keep that room smelling fresh. Plus it is strong enough to mask any odors. I also love how it makes me feel when I am in the shower, the steam in the air picking up the notes of peppermint... it is spa like!

Another way that I use the peppermint oil in my home is around windows, cracks, and any spots where rodents or bugs might try to come in the house. Most of those vermin don't like the scent of peppermint, so it works as a great way to keep the unwanted out of the house, and not use a harmful chemical in the process.

Great peppermint oil, 5 stars from me! There are so many uses for peppermint oil, just take to the internet and look them up!


-LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL-
I have found so many uses for this Lemon Essential Oil! So let me share with you 2 of my favorite uses:

1. DIY Bath Soak Salts. I buy some coarse sea salt, and mix in a few drops of the lemon essential oil, along with a few drops of olive oil and coconut oil. Within minutes I have a lemony smelling bath salt that I can use in the tub to gently exfoliate my skin. This makes a great DIY project, and it also makes an even better gift! I will either add a few drops of yellow food coloring to enhance the appeal, or I will package it in a sheer yellow sachet. Either way, its a great DIY!

2. Add To Cleaners. I will had a few drops to my floor cleaner, kitchen cleaner and bathroom cleaner. When I am washing, the scent will fill up the room, and it will last for a good while. Some of my cleaners are already citrus scented, but this just enhances it and takes it to a whole new level. It makes my home instantly inviting, and is a great alternative to using spray fragrances. You could also search online to make your own cleaners, and use this as a way to add scent to it.

A great oil to have in the home, with lots of uses!

Please note that I was sent this product complimentary to try out in my home in order to share my honest experience, thoughts and review.
