I absolutely love the smell of this peppermint oil. I could breathe it in all day. It tastes so good added to lime water or breath freshener. I've tried other oils that taste bitter and this one just tastes minty and so soothing on the throat. I put it straight on my tongue when I have a cough and it soothes my throat so much.
A nice blend of some of these oils healed my poor girl's ear infection and relieved some of that pain. They have so many great uses. Definitely worth your money.
