Essential Oils are wonderful. Lavender Essential Oil is my favorite. The scent is relaxing, and the oil is used in massage and aromatherapy.
You can put some on your dryer balls, or on a rag, to make your laundry smell wonderful. It is especially nice to use when drying your sheets and pillow cases, because Lavender can help you relax and fall asleep easier.
Putting a drop on a cotton ball and stuffing that in your pillow case can help the scent last longer too.
You can use this oil in your bath too. It is supposed to help with skin problems such as eczema and acne, as well as aching muscles.
The oil can be used in diffusers or oil burners for aroma therapy. It is great in foot soaks too.
I like the scent of this oil, it smells pretty much like the other Lavender Oil I have used, but I don’t have a clue how to tell if it is as natural and pure as the label says it is. I have used it on my dryer balls and the laundry does smell nice afterward.
I really like the dropper that came with it, and I’m gonna keep that even after this oil is gone. I received a free product to review.
The Relax Essential Oil Blend from Mia Mariu is one of the best smelling scents I have ever come across. I love it.
Since it is specially blended to aid relaxation it is great for using in the bedroom. It can help make drifting off to sleep much easier, and lots more pleasant. It is recommended to put some on your wrists, temples, or the back of your neck and massage it in. It can be used in a diffuser or on a cotton ball for aromatherapy too.
The ingredients in the oil are all really nice smelling on their own. Those ingredients include:
Lavender – has been cherished for its unmistakable aroma and therapeutic properties for thousands of years. It is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities and helps ease muscle tension in the head and neck.
Sandalwood – found only in Hawaii and it delivers a variety of benefits. It promotes healthy & smooth skin, reduces the appearance of scars and blemishes, enhances mood and promotes sleep and frequently used in meditation for its grounding and uplifting properties.
Cedarwood – Known for promoting healthy skin and clear breathing, Cedarwood has a warm, woody, balsamic fragrance that relaxes the mind and body and is perfect for massage therapy.
Clary Sage – known for its mood-lightening properties and ability to ease monthly menstrual cycles. It has a warm, herbal scent that is uplifting and relaxing, making it a perfect choice for supporting a normal, healthy attitude during PMS.
As well as some of the ingredients that are in their other essential oil blend:
Sweet Almond Oil – known to be high in moisturizing fatty acids (Omega 6 and Omega 9), excellent emollient high in oleic and linoleic, ideal in the treatment of dry skin, helps skin balance loss and absorption of moisture providing a smooth skin feel. It is antioxidant rich, high in Vitamin E, fat and protein content along with containing many essential nutrients.
Apricot Oil -Similar soothing properties as almond oil. Apricot oil is a favorite oil for mothers and babies because of its ability to soothe chaffed skin gently. It is quickly absorbed into the skin; it is often used as massage oil to deliver benefits such as reducing stress, pain and inflammation and instilling an overall sense of well-being. Apricot kernel oil is also very mild and non-irritating, making it suitable for children and infant massage. It is cold-pressed from the dried seeds of the fruit of the apricot tree. This natural oil is light-colored and fragrant, imparting a somewhat nutty aroma.
Grapeseed Oil – used as a base oil for many creams and lotions. It is the preferred carrier oils for many massage therapists because of its light, satin like finish. It also has some astringent qualities and is good for oily, acne prone skin.
Jojoba Oil – used as a favorite carrier oil. It closely resembles the sebum of the skin, and is rich in vitamin E; thus promoting a glowing complexion.
Rosehip Oil – extremely high in essential fatty acids and is known to help treat dry, irritated, weathered skin. It is also suitable for treating burns, scars and stretch marks.
Macadamia Oil – in addition to its moisturizing benefit, it is a nutrient-dense oil which is packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids that protect your skin and helps promote healing process after a sunburn or other types of skin damage. As an added bonus, Macadamia oil mimics your skin’s natural oils, making it an ideal match for maintaining your glow.
Coconut Oil – an excellent massage oil for the skin as well as it acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skin. It is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of the skin, delays the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
One of the things I really like about this essential oil is that it is made with 100% organic essential oils, and has no added fragrance, and contains no parabens, sulfates, or alcohol.
It is good for all skin types.

The Peppermint Oil is great for putting around the kitchen since it tends to repel critters you don’t want in your kitchen (mice!). It also makes the trash can smell really good, if you put a drop in there.
It tends to have a generally uplifting effect, and seems to help give me more energy for the housecleaning too.
The Lavender Oil is great for using in the laundry, especially for sheets and pillow cases. Or you can put it in a diffuser in your bedroom, or just on a cotton ball. The scent of Lavender is known to be helpful for relaxing, so it is great for sleeping areas.
Both of these oils are 100% pure steam distilled, and have no added ingredients or fillers. They are also backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee, no matter where you buy them.
You can purchase them on the InstaNatural website or from Amazon.com.
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.
