    Fragrance Perfect for Lip Balm Recipe My teenage son made lip balm as holiday gifts this year. He got the recipe from the book .Amazon had everything he needed to make his gifts, including these little that proved to be the most elusive ingredient in the recipe!The recipe Andrew was using called for an essential oil, and Andrew chose this that despite it’s very potent aroma straight from the bottle, was an excellent choice for lip balm. When part of a larger group of ingredients, it’s bouquet lightened to a perfect level; not too strong and not too light.We priced essential oils at our local health food store, and Amazon’s price was by far the most economical, always a plus when it’s a young person footing the bill for ingredients!Some might argue that product cost less because it’s not labeled as “food grade”. It is labeled as “100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil- no fillers, additives, bases or carriers added”. The recipe for the lip balm calls for heating to almost boiling, and the oil is a tiny part of the whole recipe. We felt very safe using this product for our lip balm recipe and would purchase again the next time we needed an essential oil.

    Hair Growth Aid The oil is definitely peppermint oil! It has a VERY strong scent. It even irritated my eyes a little bit before I got used to it. I also accidentally got a little on my finger while trying to open the bottle and my skin kind of burned through out the whole day.It stopped after several washings. Be careful when you’re opening it, especially if you tend to be a little clumsy like me.I can’t review it for what I bought it for yet. I am mixing with JBCO in order to use it as a hair growth oil and since I’ve had it for a little under a week, I can’t tell you that part. What I can tell you is that although I like the tingling/cooling sensation I’m getting on my scalp for the oil that I made, I didn’t like the dropper on the bottle. I had a hard time getting the oil to drop out so eventually I took the dropper out (with gloves on) and used a medicine dropper to distribute it into my hair growth oil.I’ll review this again in a month to say whether or not it helped with my hair growth.
