It is very concentrated. A tiny bit (one drop) goes a long way.
I put one drop in the heater vent in my kitchen and it made my whole house smell good. I started in the kitchen because we have developed a mice problem, since it got cold outside.
Mice are not supposed to like peppermint. I know they don’t like mint plants, and the oil should repel them even more since it is concentrated (and very strong smelling). It is also supposed to repel other nasty critters, like roaches and ants.
Putting it in the kitchen might help our diets too. The scent is supposed to help make you feel full faster. I’m not sure if it really is helping with that or not. I can say it definitely clears your head.
I have had a stuffy nose for a few days and after putting a drop of peppermint oil in the vent my nose started clearing out. I really like that. It might help with asthma also, but I can’t really tell if I’m breathing better because of my sinuses clearing out or what. I like it either way.
My husband said he might try putting some oil in the mole runs out in the yard. He has been trying to get rid of the moles for a while now. Peppermint oil might just do the trick.
If you want to use this oil for topical applications (like arthritis) you need to add it to a carrier oil, such as coconut, jojoba, grapeseed, safflower, or olive oils.
This essential oil is 100% pure and natural. It is non-toxic, has no additives, is unfiltered, undiluted, and has no fillers.
I received a free bottle of Peppermint Essential Oil to review.
