We all know what Peppermint smells like and there are a lot of peppermint essential oils on the market but I trust the sourcing and quality control Pompeii offers. UPDATED gcms reports on batches put this company's oils above the rest. We use this in our massage blend and have been bought from Pompeii for almost four years now.

I have used 4 brands of peppermint oil and this one blew the others out of the water. I get a lot of sinus headaches, which sometimes go into migraines. With this peppermint oil, I simply inhale a couple of times from the bottle and my headache goes away within 15 minutes. I diffuse it and only have to use 3 drops. I have just started using Pompeii and I am sold. Quality, Quality, Quality. Thank you for such an amazing product.
Rich, wonderful scent. I depend on peppermint oil applied topically for stomach issues and headaches. This is the best I've tried.
