Refreshing Mint Wand
Made from certified organic sunflower seed oil, certified organic peppermint essential oil, and certified organic eucalyptus (radiata) essential oil, this light and aromatic roller ball can help provide relief by making sinuses feel more open or reduce the feeling of nausea.
Sunflower oil has a 0 rating in terms of comedogenic ratings. This means it will not clog your pores. It also penetrates your skin with oleic acid (omega-9 fatty acid) helping to maintain proper natural moisture levels, but it also has a thin viscosity and absorbs quickly so your skin is not left feeling greasy.
Peppermint essential oil has a strong naturally occurring scent. It’s minty while also having naturally occurring menthol. Menthol helps you feel a cooling sensation on your skin. It too has a thin viscosity helping speed skin absorption.
Eucalyptus radiata essential oil is typically considered to be a bit milder and thus somewhat safer than other eucalyptus varieties. This one has a lightly sweet scent but still reminiscent of the scent of camphor. As with the other oils in this wand, it has a thin viscosity as well.
I love to use this wand when my nose is a little stuffed or when I have a migraine. I glide it under my nose, around other sinus areas on my face, across my forehead, and even along the back of my neck. If I feel like it’s not working quickly enough I will rub the oils into my skin more evening with my hands. When my nose is stuffed it helps me feel a little less congested. When I have a migraine, it won’t make my migraine leave completely, but it definitely helps lift feelings of nausea so I can feel a bit more functional and carry along easier with my daily activities.
There is a small gap in the label at the back so you always know exactly how much you have left.
I am not a medical professional, just someone who is looking for natural alternatives for my own and my family’s well-being. We use all products that I make or I would not be willing to sell them.
Products made with essential oils are not meant to be shaken vigorously. Doing so may cause too many air bubbles to form and thus shorten its shelf life. All Refreshing Mint Wands are shipped in padded envelopes to minimize shipping agitation. The best way to ensure your product is fulling mixed is to gently roll it back-and-forth and side-to-side. All wands have a tiny air pocket at the top to allow for some gentle mixing in this manner.
Sometimes there is a very low risk that peppermint may irritate mucous membranes. It is advised not to be used near the face of infants and young children. I keep the dilution rate below max recommended levels to minimize this possibility. However, it is always a good idea to check with your own or your child’s physician. It may also present a risk in cases of cardiac fibrillation or in those with a G6PD deficiency. Eucalyptus oils of all varieties present similar issues and are not recommended on or near the face of children under 10. I also keep the dilution rate of eucalyptus lower than max dilution to help minimize this possibility.
This product is not meant for internal consumption as eucalyptus can be very toxic when taken internally. However, no essential oils should be used internally without guidance from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner.
