I was sent two of the three products featured below. A lemon essential oil, and peppermint essential oil from the brand InstaNatural. I was supposed to get Lavender, but I'm not sure why it didn't come. Either way, I can only review the two for you.
Before I had received these, I've not used essential oils. Of course, you see everyone and their mom (literally) pushing essential oils online. I decided to give this a go since it wasn't going to cost me an arm and a leg as those companies charge.
It was after I received this that I got a diffuser. I thought it was perfect timing. And you know what, I couldn't be happier. I don't know if these oils perform some sort of voodoo that I don't understand. All I know is that they smelled wonderful. They were really strong even before I opened the package. I could smell the lemon and peppermint, and it smelled really nice together. I actually didn't want to open the bottles because you were able to smell them through our whole apartment easily!
But once they were in the diffuser, it was even more wonderful. The scent was strong, but not overbearing (of course that depends on how much you put in). I've not used it for anything other than for use in the diffuser, but I've heard that you can use these for other things - though I've not done the research.
