Peppermint And Lemongrass Our Favorite Essential Oils!

Hello Blogger Friends!

Happy Monday to all our friends out there in blog nation! From all of us here at and we invite you to browse our all natural and organic specialty stores! As many of you may or may not know last year we began to offer our own line of pure undiluted oils as we as our newest convenient ready to use aromatherapy and massage single blends using our own high end sweet almond and jojoba oils mixed in perfect ratios.
Today we are going to talk briefly about our two favorite essential oils Peppermint and Lemongrass. We all seem to agree that the aroma is second to none in our office and warehouse when these are heated in our oil lamps. So now a little more info on these two great and natural aromas!
First the peppermint. Our peppermint essential oil which has the technical name Mentha piperita is made using steam distillation. The aroma of this top note oil is powerful and will fill a room quickly. Many people have emailed us with their liking of the soothing aroma and heat like sensation when used as a massage oil. Just a few drops of our undiluted oil will also keep insects at bay!
Our lemongrass essential oil is very similar to the peppermint with the exception of a very different aroma and different technical name Cymbopogon citratus. This top note oil has a slightly more yellowish color than peppermint. Its aroma is about as powerful as peppermint oil.
One tip we love to give our customers who drive or work long hours and need a natural pick me up is to put a couple drops each of pure peppermint and lemongrass essential oil on a tissue and the either tape it to your ceiling fan base or if driving stuff it into your vehicle's air conditioning vent. The aroma helps with mental alertness, focus, and mental clarity and may help keep those purple elephants off the road as your eyes get heavier and heavier.
These two oils are also used in our pure beeswax lip balms and work great! As we can't reveal the exact amount we use in each lip balm we can say that two ounces of these pure undiluted oils will make hundreds of our lip balms. If you have a friend or family member who can really deliver the "Oh My Goodness" factor after a good healthy sit on toilet then keep some of our aromatherapy blended peppermint or lemongrass oil nearby with your oil lamp. This is sure to negate the bad aroma in minutes!

Have a great day!
