  1. Superfast headache relief!!! This suff is amazing!!!!

    Posted by Beth Ann Krier on Jul 23rd 2017

    Besides the fact that this particular peppermint oil has worked miraculously for me, routinely eliminating headaches in less than a minute, I love that it is certified organic! And there is a date on the bottle that tells me how long it will be working for me! You rarely get that with essential oils sold at other places, at least the ones I have visited. There is so much integrity in this company and its founder, Melissa Bunce! Thank you!
