I worked at Bath and Body Works years ago. While I was there I learned a bit about aromatherapy. It was at that time that I fell in love with the smell of lavender and peppermint essential oils. Not only do they smell wonderful they are very useful for so many things.
I received a bottle of lavender and peppermint essential oils from Insta Natural to test and review. On their own the oils can be used for relaxation, stress-relief, and energy. I personally don't use peppermint oil without adding it to a carrier oil; such as fractionated coconut oil. I'm always worried that I will use too much and peppermint oil is strong. However, with the lavender oil I don't worry about using it full strength.
For these two particular oils I bought two 6oz travel bottles from Target (one for each oil) and put fractionated coconut oil in, then added a dropper full of the lavender oil in one bottle and a dropper full of the peppermint oil in the other bottle. You can mix them if you want to, but I chose not to. The coconut oil has no scent and stays liquid.

These particular essential oils from this company are 100% pure and steam-distilled. They are high quality and all natural. You can get a 4oz glass bottle for $19.95 on their site. Essential oils are extremely useful for helping what ails you in a natural way. I encourage everyone to check out the benefits of them.
