Peppermint :

The powerful and Invigorating aroma of Peppermint all the way from USA is the most amazing pick-me-up you will need today! Cooling and warming at the same time, its uniqueness can offer so many ways of support for you.

Uses for Peppermint :

• Add 4-5 drops of Peppermint into my diffuser for a whole family 'wake-up' enhancer, or even add a few drops of Wild Orange Oil as well if they are a bit grumpy in the morning... • Seasonal changes got you down? Combine even drops of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint to a roller blend or your diffuser to relieve allergies symptoms naturally. • Peppermint is my sneaky favourite oil I add to my brownie mix giving it a delicious and satisfying flavour. For a quick on-the-go treat, Try Betty Crockers Triple Choc Brownie and add 3-4 drops of Peppermint oil in before baking. YUM! • Combine 10 Drops of Peppermint, 10 Drop of Lavender and 1 Tbsp of Aloe Vera Gel to a 30ml Bottle of filtered water (make sure you leave a gap after adding water to ensure room for oils and Aloe Vera Gel after) and shake to give the whole family a natural Sun Soother remedy for those hot summer days coming up! Spray on body as needed avoiding sensitive areas. • Need to get some motivation to get moving for work, gym or those 'jobs' you really are just avoiding? You can sniff Peppermint straight from the bottle to alert and invigorate the senses, open the lungs and provide your body with a natural uplift in mood! Go get em! Note: Peppermint Oil can be sensitive on the skin if applied neat so be sure to dilute according to your skins needs.

Lemon :

dōTERRA's amazing Lemon oil is grown in Sicily, Italy and from there it is cold-pressed from the rind (so you have pure oil, not the acidic juice) in every bottle!

So there are up to 45 Lemons in your 15ml bottle of Essential Oil! So incredibly powerful.

This can help to break down stains and residue built up on the teeth.
