Good for colds

Used in an electric air diffuser with eucalyptus, lemon and lavender to help flu and cold symptoms. Only a few drops gives a great scent and certainly perks you up. Good quality organic oil.

Lovely oils

I love the peppermint oil. Use it in a diffuser in the kitchen to deter flies and wasps. Also use it in homemade shower spray as it's a lovely smell and keeps spiders out of bathroom.
Website is easy to use and parcels are always delivered on time.
