This is the second time purchasing this product. I use just an eyedropper full to 10 gallons of water for my dogs and cats to drink - they seem to love it! My husband uses just a drop in a cup of coffee and says it's the best peppermint taste.
I have purchased several products and the Peppermint Essential Oils are on my household essentials. Great for making homemade personal care products, household aids (cleaning, insect control, and cleaning products) and my own air freshener for kitchen and bathrooms.
This oil is amazing and is not as sharp as most other peppermint oils I have used. I will buy it again.
I have only one complaint which is the bottle leaked in shipping.
I love peppermint! It is one of my favorite oils. I use it in my foaming hand wash, lip balm, inhaler, and various blends. It is invigorating. I bought the peppermint Supreme.
A field close to my house just got turned into a new subdivision and the little critters that lost their homes tried to take up residence in mine. Since spraying a Peppermint mix around, I haven't seen a single spider inside.
Used in CP soap just what I wanted
I hit the lottery with this company when I found my favorite oil in a 2 oz. bottle vs. the more knwon 1 oz. bottles. AND I'm saving money purchasing bigger bottles! Amazing! Thanks BA!
I use this oil and the eucalyptus in my sinus relief steamers and I cannot make them fast enough. The oil is spot on and makes a great shower steamer.
I ordered the Japan peppermint oil. It is sharp and strong and lasts a long time. Rodents, especially mice, cannot tolerate peppermint OIL. It also kills their scent trail. I used a 1 inch paint brush and painted the oil under the bottom piece of siding around the whole house to kill the scent trail. I paint this oil in early autumn and just toss a few cotton balls soaked in this oil in the attic and basement and .....NO MORE MICE!!!
