How to Use

There are many ways to use essential oils! Some people feel comfort ingesting essential oils, but it is not something I recommend because these oils are so concentrated.

Ways to use your peppermint essential oil:

  • You can add this oil into your body care recipes! This is a great oil to add when making soaps and body sprays!
  • Can be applied to the skin when diluted with a carrier oil in a roller bottle or spray bottle.
  • You can add this to your aroma diffusers to create a refreshing scent in your space!
