Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


For years I tried products for the adult acne that showed up in my 20's. Facials, peels even insurance paid for hospital laser and, last but not least, Accutane. I tried everything to clear my complexion. Everything worked to a point.

When I realized how powerful the essential oils from Young Living were, I became a distributor. I started putting 1 drop of Peppermint water in each glass of water I drank and kept some in a pitcher - in around 3 weeks, I was shocked, my complexion was clearing up. I had no idea this would happen, and I continued drinking it. I was never a Peppermint fan, until now.

After the $1000's of dollars I spent seeking, in reality, the answer was a $20 product. Never had a doctor or aesthetician ever suggested digestion could be the problem.

One of my work friends became a distributor and was drinking the Peppermint water. When I saw her last, I couldn't figure out what was so different, it was her skin - it was nice before, but truly glowing now.

Peppermint water - can we bottle and sell it? I wish!! The power of Peppermint to assist with gastrointestinal concerns can't be overstated!
