One of my favorite oils to use in the sauna!! Smells like chewing gum - gentle and refreshing. Goes great with lime!
I love this essential oil. I use it in my soaps. The fragrance is uplifting and yet soothing to the senses. Works well with the batter. Doesn't accelerate the batter at all.
Nice! Sweet and VERY diffusive. Great as a room deodoriser. Mixed with lavender and orange it’s wonderful!
true spearmint scent. love this oil.
