Review: InstaNatural Peppermint and Lavender Essential OilsMarch 16, 2015
Disclosure: I received product samples in a campaign through Tomoson. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
Essential oils have been used for centuries for medicinal and therapeutic purposes, some with antiseptic properties, making them useful for many purposes, including aromatherapy. Please note these oils should never be ingested. For use of ingestion, please look for them in capsule form, or make sure it is therapeutic grade oil.

Health Benefits of Essential Oils:
Peppermint Oil: has a high concentration of natural pesticides, it has been shown to be effective for IBS, nausea, vomiting, and many other stomach ailments, also headache and respiratory issues. Primary components of this oil are menthol and menthone. Found in mouthwash to gum. It is a very potent aroma, relaxing, and refreshing, too.
Lavender Oil: is know for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities. The oil soothes insect bites, burns, and headaches. Primary components of this oil are linalool and linalyl acetate. Used in perfumes and aromatherapy. It has a very calming effect, reducing stress and anxiety.
Both of these oils are similar in qualities and benefits, yet different, and seem to compliment one another when used together. There are many ways to enjoy these oils.
How to Use Oils:
Both oils are known for pest repellent properties. Spring is a perfect time of year to place cotton balls with a few drops of peppermint around the room. Especially when we open the windows as a deterrent for bugs.
My favorite way to enjoy these oils are a few drops in a cotton ball, it really refreshes a room. I also want to try a peppermint spray in the garden this year, it could also be used for cleaning purposes, too.
Tips from InstaNatural for their Lavender and Peppermint Oils:* Our essential oils are 100% pure, we recommend to dilute well before use.
* The bottle should be stored in a cool, dark location, away from direct heat and sunlight.
* Our essential oils are recommended for external use only.
* Lavender Essential Oil is great to use around the house and can be used to freshen laundry. Add the calming scent by placing several drops of lavender essential oil on a clean cloth and tossing into the dryer during the cool-down phase.
* Peppermint Essential Oil is great to use to boost the spirits. Place a drop on your wrists and inhale gently to help with congestion and invigorate your senses with the invigorating, menthol fragrance.
