InstaNatural Essential Oils – Lemon & Peppermint
I recently got to try out the new InstaNatural Essential Oils in Lemon & Peppermint…do you say flavors? I love using essential oils for many different things and have grown to love peppermint oil for sore muscles, and for helping with the arthritis in my shoulder. It always works great, and this product did just the same.
Both of the essential oils smelled great, were really easy to use – since the top of the bottle is a medicine dropper style cap which makes dispersing the amount you need so easy and quick. I loved not having to worry about spilling the whole bottle like you do with some of the other brands. I also love how you can use these in tandem with an oil diffuser and let them fill your home with refreshing, cheerful aromas. What could be better than that?
I’ve added some information below on the products and some things that they can be used for, etc. I definitely recommend the InstaNatural Essential Oils collection, as well as their company, as a whole. The customer service was amazing, shipment was quick and packaged well and I will definitely be using the company in the future for my essential oil needs.
