My niece is visiting from Oregon and got bitten by this scorpion on her first day here. We put a few drops of your peppermint oil on the inflamed area and then applied ice. Within 30 minutes the pain was mostly gone and we were able to go on a long walk the next morning.
p.s. We have been using it on other insect bites and it takes the itch and redness away within a minute. I’m sold on your product!

Just talked to my daughter. She is very grateful you suggested using peppermint for easing her chronic bronchitis symptoms. She said she is off all the meds and hasn’t had to use her inhaler in over a month even with all the crap flying around in the air. Woo Hoo! You Rock!

We have used both the Spearmint and the Peppermint extracts since Saturday – and it has given us positive results for muscle pain, as well as a severe headache. The cost of the extracts, along with the results, was SMALL CHANGE compared to the cost and side effects of what we have been using. Of course, I would hasten to add, that these are not supplanting regular meds, just supplementing in a more natural way.
Keep up the Great Work!

This peppermint oil is a miracle in a bottle. I always carry mine with me as it cures just about all things that ail me on a daily basis: when I start to get a headache, rubbing some on my forehead clears it right up; if I need a little pick me up, a spot under the nostrils perks me up and the time it takes to clear up my sinuses is like magic. I’m addicted! Oh! And I make the most delicious peppermint mochas with just the smallest drop!

Thanks again, Peppermint Jim! Your peppermint soy candle smells amazing; it energizes me & lowers my stress as I’m developing websites on deadline in my home office!

[On Peppermint Jim's Peppermint Oil:] This is an amazing product. I had a knee replacement in 2008. The joint is defective and has to be replaced. My sister had me try this. I can’t believe how quickly it responds. I don’t have to even use it on a daily basis because the effects last for several days. Thank you for giving me some pain free days till surgery next month.

I will add my testimonial about how much I love your peppermint and spearmint. I have a sensitive nose and can smell the difference between it and other oils. It smells fresh and alive. Using your oils lifts my spirits, I feel happier. I love your suggestion about putting it in the washing machine while doing the laundry. No more sour laundry smells. I am also seeing improvement on my toenail fungus I’ve had for years.

It is nice to be able to use my hands again without pain. (…) I gave a bottle to a friend last night who has severe diabetes and he used it on his ankles. He said that it reduced the pain and he actually felt sensations in his feet which he hasn’t felt in years. Hopefully it helps him out even in the slightest amount. Thanks again.

Hi Jim, I met you and purchased oil and soil rejuvenator at the Tucson Gem Show. We chatted about your work at NMSU here in Las Cruces where I live. I LOVE the products. My headaches, a season of having them when I met you, were permanently chased away with your oil. I only get them periodically but I think they were forewarned by your oil. The relief was instant and amazing. The soil rejuvenator is amazing! My potted flowers have never looked so amazing. I am ordering some for my gardening pals and one friend who is in the Ag Ed Masters program at NMSU. I see the oil is antiviral, fungal, bacterial and read where it has been used for cold sores, shingles, head colds, aches and pains. (…) I am excited to continue sharing the blessings of your products. I agreed with one of the comments about quality. There are oils and then there is Peppermint Jim! God Bless,
Hello Jim! It was good to see you and hear you speak at the Gardener’s Gala last weekend! I just wanted to let everyone know what a wonderful product you have! I have been using your peppermint oil for a year now. I USED to have horrible migraine headaches, the kind you take medication for everyday to try to block them, these medicines were horrible and their side effects were very nearly killing me, I lost my memory, my hair was falling out, basically, I could not function! I started using your peppermint oil when I would notice the first sign of migraine coming on. I would rub a drop or two into my temple and close my eyes and hope, then hope became a reality as the pain would subside. Sometimes it would come back in a few minutes and I would simply apply more and it would be gone for good! Now at the first sign I put a drop or two on the temple and it is gone and stays gone! I am off my medication for good and have almost no headaches any more, when I do get one, back to the mint I flee for instant relief!
Thank you, Jim, you have literally saved my life, and I can remember to say thank you

We have purchased many drams of your mint oil both peppermint, honey, and spearmint, once we learned of your company. We use it daily in our tea. However, the amazing thing I want to share with you is that my mother has been dealing with shingles-a virus that attacks the nerves and muscles (the virus is a leftover by product of chickenpox); I remembered the properties of the mint oil and gave her some of it to help with the inflammation and the pain associated with it.
Can I just tell you that the mint oil helped to relieve some of the inflammation inside of my mother’s mouth and ear, where she was in excruciating pain from the swelling? She applied it to her tongue and underneath as well as to the outer ear where the ear was swollen almost completely shut. It is working; and I thank you for your product. We ordered two more bottles for her last week as well as several more for our family. I know you both have worked hard to get your product in the hands of the consumer. I am thankful that you did and do. Keep up the good work!

While I have used your oils for many things..I recently found one more reason to always have some on hand! I suffer from occasional cold sores and usually use a pricy, store-bought “fix”. Well, couldn’t find it, so grabbed the peppermint oil…figuring what the heck?! Well…it beat the other product all to pieces, healing my cold sore in 3 days, without any flaking or scabbing!! Bye bye pricy fixes…hello one more reason to be thankful for your products! Gotta tell you I’m still reeling over the healing of my coldsore!! Ha, you’re e-mail prompted me to go on about it, once more, to my hubby. U-n-b-e-l-i-e-v-a-b-l-e!!! So, heck yes…feel free to use this as testimonial on your website!! In fact, if you can add the word “completely” before the phrase “healing my cold sore”…feel free..as that is exactly what happened. Hmmm….an all natural cold sore remedy? Sign me up!! : ) Thanks again for what you do!

I just wanted to tell you that when I was pregnant*, I was so congested! I loved sniffing my dram of peppermint throughout the day and before bed. Now I use it all of the time since I am so tired with a newborn, it gives me the pick-me-up that I need now that I back to work! Love your peppermint oil!!!

*Please note: pregnant women should consult a physician before use.
Thought you might like to know that your peppermint oil is the only thing I’ve found that gives me relief from the itch/burn due to bites from the tiny ants here in the Philippines. They love to bite my feet and ankles, and I have a pretty severe reaction to them, so I’ve about given up working in the yard. I’m so glad I have the oil here.

I have heard Peppermint Jim speak several times in the last two years and believe that he is one of the best and most honest people in this universe. When I first heard him speak, he spoke about the quality of his peppermint and spearmint. I had some expensive peppermint in my purse that I had purchased at a health-food store. The difference between the expensive oil and they one I purchased from Peppermint Jim was several hundred percent better. I purchased several bottles and have passed them out to my family and friends. They now carry their bottles on their person, to have it available whenever needed. After hearing about how the mint helps you go to sleep at night, I tried it and now use it every night. I fall asleep in minutes (I guess, because it seems my head hits the pillow and that’s the last I remember). I wish Jim and his family and crew the best in the future.

I heard about an experience of a woman that was suffering from a head cold. The woman on The Power Hour was explaining the benefits of essential oil. She put some peppermint oil on a cotton ball and let the person inhale it. She had instant relief. I had some peppermint oil from my massage school. I was feeling congested and put a couple drops on my cotton handkerchief and inhaled it regularly. It improved my condition within hours. I now also use Dr. Bronner’s peppermint castille soap. I put some hot water in the sink with a washcloth and put in a few drops of the soap. I wring it out and put it over my face and take a few deep breaths, which is very effective at relieving any congestion. I have given my wife and daughter a handkerchief with the small get mint peppermint bottles in a Ziploc bag to carry with them in their purse. My daughter had a head cold and I put the handkerchief on her pillow and it helped her sleep. I put a couple drops in our vaporizer, as well. It has transformed our lives. I hope you have overcome your financial difficulties. I will only buy future mint from you.
