I recently tested out several of their single oils, including lavender, peppermint and euchalyptus. They had a slightly different scent from my usual brand, but that doesn't mean much on the outset - after all, plants take on the properties of the land where they are grown (think: wines from various countries.)
These three oils are great to have on hand for the winter months. Euchalyptus rocks for congestion and coughs. In our family we dilute a drop or two in a carrier oil and rub it on our chest or back, or you could add a few drops to your humidifier at night as well. Lavender is surprisingly beneficial for nasal congestion, though we most often use it in baths or in helping restless kids sleep. And peppermint is fabulous for fevers, nausea and vomiting.
My daughter preferred the lavender and euchalyptus essential oils to the brand we had at home, and was happy to use that instead for her cough. The lavender helped with her itchy scalp as well.
What I loved most, though, were the massage oil and Scentsball diffuser. The Aromappeal® Wonder Oil includes a blend of olive, sunflower seed, wheat germ, sweet almond, sesame and jojoba oils, along with grapefruit, lemon and orange essential oils. It was fabulous on my dry winter skin!
The Scentball Plug In Electric Diffuser is inexpensive and compact (on sale for $7.99 right now). It does require putting drops of essential oil on a refillable pad . I can't attest to how long the diffuser lasts at this point, but it is
great to use as a booster for my oils to help keep us cold free this winter.
