Absolutely love this scent. Was worried it'd just smell like sugary mint gum, but it has a very crisp, sweet, soothing smell to it. Wish I had got a larger size!

I love the product. However, this is the 3rd time I've received oils that had leaked during shipping.
I was expecting the scent to be a bit stronger, but it does have a nice scent. I received the bottles very quickly, and they were packed very well.
I just ordered a couple more bottles of this peppermint oil last week, since i live in MD and the company is in VA only took one day to get to me. The smell is really strong so you need much to have it smelling like peppermint in your home that is what i have used it for so far, very soothing. I have a bottle from 2 years ago and it is still just as strong as the new bottle, just didnt want to run out.
We have used this product for many years. We use it predomitly for pain. I use it every day for joint pain and back pain. Without it, I would be on huge amounts of pain killers that aren't good in the long run. This is no hazard to my body. It is the same as putting ice on pain.
I find the peppermint oil keeps its strength.
Peppermint essential oil is a staple at my house, and now my daughters! We use it for cleaning, add to vinegar and water for mopping wood floors, a few drops on a handkerchief relieves headaches, I add it to my homemade castile soap, and make a hot flash spray.
Deliver is fast and oil comes in a small plastic jug with screw top sealed with plastic tapes. IMO this is a good value for bulk use Peppermint oil for household and external use. This is the second time I have ordered 16 oz in the last 2 years, so I am a repeat customer. I do not believe this is the same food grade quality as other oils I purchase specifically for consumption, and I myself would not normally ingest this product on a regular basis. Would purchase this product again.
I use it to keep mice away and it does a fine job
This is my "fourth" order from WFMED Green Health, and I am pleased each time with my purchasing experience and yummy smelling and healing Essential Oils. This Peppermint Essential Oil, is like peppermint on steriods. It has a very clean and soothing smell. Just add a couple drops to your bottled water, and shake well, and you will have a "natural" yummy flavored water. I also read about Alan Hirsch MD who studied peppermint's "ability" to directly affect the brain's satiety center, which triggered a sensation of fullness after meals.I thought I would find out for myself ;-)
