Fresh and uplifting scent

I have been using this in an aromatherapy diffuser to burn around the house. Its amazing for freshening and cleansing the home at this time of year, and to hopefully keep germs at bay! Smells amazing and isn't too strong. Highly recommended.

Peppermint treat

This Peppermint has a wonderful aroma, great for mixing with other essential oils or using on its own.

A must in every household

This essential oil is one I often reach for! It is so versatile. It's one that I believe should be a must in every household. Compared to other companies the NYR version seems to smell the most 'pure' (smell synthetic versions and you'll understand what I mean). Great quality essential oil. I use it for headaches, a tiny drop on temples and it immediately relieves me. I love it
