HOW TO USE
Add about 4-5 drops of Iryasa Peppermint oil for every 100ml (3.3 fl.oz) of water in a diffuser. Its bright and refreshing scent works great as a mental stimulant to promote clarity and encourage positivity.
You may need to increase/decrease the number of drops depending on the size of the room and where your diffuser is kept. For instance, you'd probably need less number of drops for a smaller or less ventilated room. Since the intensity of scents are such a personal preference, we recommend that you start with less and work your way up as needed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the main chemical constituent of Peppermint?

Yes, it is! Soon after application, Peppermint oil constricts capillaries which leads to a cooling sensation. This is followed by a rubefacient effect which brings about a warming sensation.
Peppermint oil works great in muscle rubs and balms to soothe aches and pains.
