Lovely scent

I love this brand of peppermint oil. Strong but with a lovely smell, and blends well with loads of the other essential oils. Like all Neals Yard products, the quality is great. Would highly recommend.


Lovely essential oil. 👌

Peppermint Essential Oil 10ml

I was keen to try this essential oil as we had an infestation of fruit flies and I had read that they didn't like the smell of peppermint - the flies disappeared.

Essential Oil

Nice smelling, never disappointed with any purchase from Neals. Lemon is still a favorite.

Peppermint aromatherapy

A beautiful aromatic blend with lemongrass in an oil steamer in Saturdays to fill the whole house.

Gorgeous fresh, clean scent

Just the perfect oil to use in a diffuser to give your home a fresh, clean scent. We also just had a baby and use a few drops in the nappy bin to neutralise smells.

Invigorating essential oil

I love this essential oil. I add it to the base massage oil for when I give myself a foot massage. A little goes a long way.
