  1. I just got my Balm Mint Bush in the mail yesterday and I LOVE it. It’s kind of like a calmer version of peppermint and eucalyptus mixed together. It has that distinct peppermint smell but also an herbal note similar to eucalyptus. It is milder so I can see myself diffusing at night with other calming oils to promote clear breathing during sleep. After only one day I can already tell this is one of my favorite oils and I will be going to it frequently.

  2. I’m new to the benefits of essential oils but I have to say, I love how easy the information is to find on this website. As far as if the oil is kid safe and how to best use it.

  3. I just got mine in the oily mail today! I read that it’s good for tension headaches, how would I use it in a roll on, personal inhaler, and diffuser blend for these? Thanks so much!

  4. I hace a teenager with skin issues so I will be having her try this oil out. Im so excited thanks for the great information

  5. I just ordered balm mint bush and I absolutely love wearing it in my diffuser necklace. Uplifting and gives a boost of energy through the day. Definitely one of my favorites to wear if you don’t want something as strong as peppermint. Love balm mint bush!

  6. Balm Mint Bush is a favorite of mine. I do lots of diffusing with it, but really should add it to my cleaning solutions. Excited to see it as the Oil of the Week. Thanks PT!

  7. This sounds so good! I’ve been wanting to try it for a long time. I’m not sure whether I will splurge now or wait until CAM! Thanks PT for such amazing products and sales!

  8. I just purchased this yesterday & can’t wait to try it. I saw there was no peppermint oil that was safe for kids, so hopefully this will be a great oil when my daughter has a cough.

  9. I’m really struggling with deciding to purchase this or not, it seems like a great addition to my collection but if I do, I have to buy another case!

    1. That’s a great idea, Melissa! This is a perfect one to use in place of Tea Tree, just to spice up your oil game a little more 🙂

    1. Tanya, Balm Mint Bush should be just fine for your teenager! Just make sure to dilute it in a carrier first. If you’re finding it is not making any noticeable improvements, try Tea Tree, which is one of the most popular oils to use for troublesome teenage skin 🙂

  10. Going to have get this for my daughter. She’s at that age where she’s starting to have breakouts. What would be the best way to apply this for the breakouts?

    1. Katherine, if you have a roll-on bottle that would really be ideal here. Otherwise, you can keep this mixture in any small, airtight container. Just take 2 tsp (10 mL) of a carrier oil and add 3 drops of Balm Mint Bush. This makes a 1% dilution. Then, apply a small bit of that directly to the area of concern 🙂 If you’re wondering what carrier oil you should try for breakouts, I recommend Grapeseed Carrier or Jojoba. This may take some experimenting as everyone’s skin reacts in their own unique way, but generally, those two carrier oils have given a lot of people success.

    1. Michelle, it’s as simple as adding just 3 drops of Balm Mint Bush to 2 tsp (10 mL) of a carrier oil (try Grapeseed or Jojoba, but there are many other great skin-loving carrier oils to choose from), and dab a small amount of that mixture onto the area of concern 🙂 If you’re finding success, you can make this in a much larger batch and keep in stored in an airtight container.

  11. Sounds fabulous. I’m always looking for new cleaning scents. I like to switch it up. I’ll have to try this one. Thanks PT ~ you’re the best!

  12. My teenager just told me last night how much his acne was bothering him. I think I may have to try this, thank you for the great info!

  13. A favorite! Thank you for the opportunity to down size. I originally bought the 100 ml bottle and will now buy the 10 ml so I can carry this with me in my purse. It is that precious and helpful to me!
