Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.
- Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
- Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
- Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
- Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.
Avoid if preganant or on Homeopathic meds.
Do not ingest or apply to skin undiluted.

I do not want to kill them (as I am vegan) so this is a good way to 'persuade' them to go elsewhere. If I find a whole heap of ants I vacuum them up, take the bag outside and open it so they can get away, then I go back and put peppermint oil where they were. This product is the cheapest for what I use it for.28/08/2015, By CarmenI bought this to use in homemade toothpaste, which I never got around to making. I did discover by accident that the smell of this unblocks my sinuses, and I know carry this around in my handbag so I always have it on hand!02/05/2014, By JuliaWeve been using this in the office as a 100% natural, human deterrent for mice. Just put a few drops of peppermint oil on some cotton balls and put them in your kitchen cupboards - it leaves a strong peppermint-candy smell that we love, but our rodent friends don .
