MY TAKE ON NYKAA NATURALS PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
Packaging: The essential oil comes in a pretty color coded glass bottle (color coded as in the color reflects the essential oil’s dominant ingredient) with a dropper bottle which is very easy to use. The bottle is travel friendly; having said that, make sure you always use the bottle carefully without creating a mess and make sure you put the lid tight or the bottle will get leaky.
Fragrance: The essential oil smells just like polo and I hate the fragrance! But that is how it is supposed to smell!
Ways to use: Below are some ways you could use this oil-
Headache- Peppermint essential oil has soothing and analgesic properties that can help soothe a headache. Simply add 4 drops to 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and rub on the temples or aching parts of your forehead.
Sunburn- Peppermint has skin cooling and calming properties that makes it a great remedy for sunburn. Dilute it as mentioned above and apply on sunburn. You can also add few drops to pure aloe vera gel and apply it on your sunburn.
Itchy scalp- To provide relief to itchiness on your scalp, apply peppermint oil mixed with coconut oil on itching areas of your scalp and let it work overnight. You could also add few drops of this oil to shampoo.
Cold- Simply add few drops to hot water and inhale the steam to get instant relief from runny as well as congested nose.
Inflamed acne- Peppermint essential oil mixed with any carrier oil can be used as an overnight spot treatment for inflamed acne.
Apart from using this for skin care and health, this oil can also be used to make a lot of home cleaning products, insect repellents, air freshener etc. because the oil has great disinfecting properties and the smell wards off insects.
My take on the product: I have earlier used peppermint essential oil from variety of brands and none smelled as nauseating as this one! This also means that the oil is pure. I hate menthol fragrance from the very start so it isn’t something I like but if you like the smell of polo, you might like sniffing this. I like using the oil with shampoo or in my homemade hair masks and it works great! I also have used this to make a lot of DIY toners and skin care products at home (I love DIYs) and it works great! Also, I usually mix this with water and spray it on the ants to get rid of them instantly. You can use the oil however you want and I give this a thumbs up!
