I have been loving making my own beauty and cleaning products lately! I love that I can customize the ingredients, making everything as natural as I can. I also love customizing the scents I am using, especially since I am so choosy about the scents I prefer. Essential Oils are a big part of this routine. They last for ages and provide really strong scents. I used a soothing scent when I made my own soap, and I love using lemon oils for cleaning my kitchen!

There are plenty of other products to make for the home and for your beauty routine, and some of them make great gifts! This is why I was so excited when InstaNatural sent over their Peppermint Essential Oil and Lemon Essential Oil for me to review!  

The Peppermint Essential Oil is a multi-purpose oil that cools, energizes and refreshes the body and mind. It is extracted from dried or fresh leaves from the Mentha Piperita herb, making it pleasantly sweet and minty! I am a huge fan of peppermint scent, it is in a close tie with lemon for my favorite!

The Lemon Essential Oil is extracted from the rinds of lemon, which lends its fresh citrus fragrance. If you’ve ever zested a fresh lemon, you know what this oil smells like! This oil is both refreshing and uplifting, while its astringent and purifying properties also make it a great aid to help cleanse and tone the skin. My favorite part is the extra boost of Vitamin C antioxidant benefits.

Here are some of the amazing things you can make with either of these essential oils from InstaNatural.
