InstaNatural Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils ~ Review

A big thanks to InstaNatural for the opportunity to try out their products!

Info About the Peppermint Oil:

InstaNatural’s Peppermint Essential Oil is a multi-purpose oil that cools, energizes and refreshes the body and mind. This steam-distilled oil is extracted from dried or fresh leaves from the Mentha Piperita herb, giving it a sharp, menthol fragrance. Its pleasantly sweet and minty aroma makes it a premium choice for aromatherapy to improve the mind and lift the spirits.

My Thoughts:

I'm sure you have heard that essential oils are really a big item these days. They are good for aromatherapy and so much more! I really haven't had much experience with any before so was very excited to try out some from a company called InstaNatural.

For my review I received a bottle of Peppermint Oil plus a bottle of Lemon Essential Oil. These come in generous 4 fluid ounce brown glass bottle with droppers. When I received the bottles the rubber black top of the droppers were squeezed together, although when I took the shrinkwrap off the bottles they popped out. I also noticed that the Peppermint Oil was more full than the other bottle. I don't know if there was a leak or if it was just manufactured that way because there was no wetness on the packaging.

Even without opening the bottles, I could immediately smell the peppermint and lemon fragrances, which were awesome! These oils are 100% pure and natural with nothing added, so they are potent and strong. It is recommended by InstaNatural to dilute well if you are using the oil on your skin and do a small test patch first. Also, if you are pregnant they recommend to first consult your doctor before use.



The Peppermint Oil is great for using as a relaxant. I've been using a couple of drops on my pillow when I go to bed the last few nights. Wow! It really is comforting and helps me drift off to sleep. I also put a small amount on a cotton ball in one of my bathrooms and it sure makes the room smell so minty and wonderful. 


Info about the Lemon Oil:

Our Lemon Essential Oil is extracted from the rinds of lemon, which lends its fresh citrus fragrance. This cold-pressed oil has a strong bright scent that is both refreshing and uplifting. Its astringent and purifying properties also make it a great aid to help cleanse and tone the skin, while delivering a boost of Vitamin C antioxidant benefits.


My Thoughts:

The Lemon Oil has a wonderfully smelling fragrance, just like freshly cut lemons! Like the Peppermint Oil, it is recommened to dilute the Lemon Oil before using on your skin. You should also avoid the sun after usin this oil since it can cause photoirritation. 

I have used the Lemon Oil for cleaning the kitchen and bathroom sinks. They leave them smelling so fresh and squeaky clean! I've been using it all over the house. I also added a few drops in my vacuum cleaner bag and it makes my carpet smell so fresh! You can also make your own  facial cleanser with it or for toning your skin. 



All in all I'm really happy with the InstaNatural Peppermint and Lemon Oils and would recommend them!

Expandable Hose ~ Review

Disclosure: I received complimentary sample in exchange for a product review. However, all opinions expressed here are my own.



Expandable Hose ~ Review


Product Description from company:

THIS QUALITY EXPANDABLE HOSE Starts out at 33 Feet, Hook it up to Water Pressure and it Will Grow to 100 Feet. When Finished Allow the Water to Drain From the Hose and it Will Return to 33 Feet For Easy Storage.
VERY LIGHTWEIGHT, KINK, AND TANGLE FREE. Forget about Lugging Around that Heavy Traditional 100 Foot Hose and Storing it Year Round. When not in use this Hose can be Stored in a Small Bucket or on a Shelf.
QUALITY SOURCE PRODUCTS Expandable hose is Very Strong With 100 PSI Working Pressure and 300-PSI Burst Pressure. You will not be Disappointed.
-Selling Fast so Don't Wait


My Thoughts:

I have heard of expandable hoses before and saw them on television and in stores but had never had one of them before. When I had the chance to review one I jumped at the chance!

Since Spring is around the corner my husband will be watering our garden (after he plants one...hee, hee). Then there will be my flowers to water and we'll need a new hose. Actually last Fall we had to throw out an old garden hose because it was leaking and had run it's course.

I hate when regular hoses get kinked and you have to unwind them so the water goes through. This has happened so many times with the hoses we've had in the past. With this new expandable hose we don't have a problem like that. This amazing hose does not twist, tangle or kink.


The expandable hose starts out a 33 feet but when it's filled with water pressure it expands to 100 feet. When you release the pressure and allow the water to drain out of it, it deflates and goes back to it's original 33 feet.

I was surprised at how lightweight this expandable hose is, although it is very strong and sturdy. With our regular hoses they are so heavy to lug outside and move around. This is so easy to carry and you can easily store it in a small space after use.

My husband and I love this amazing hose and how convenient and even fun it is to use! 

If you are interested the expandable hose is sold on Amazon.
