InstaNatural lemon and peppermint essential oil REVIEW

I have been testing out some essential oils I received from instanatural complimentary through brandbacker for testing purposes in exchange for my honest opinions and reviews. you can check them out here on their website and on amazon!

I received a 4 oz bottle of their lemon and peppermint  essential oil. They are 100% pure and natural.
I love that it comes in a dark glass bottle. I wont have to worry about harmful chemicals leeching into my oils. 

These two essential oils retail for $19.97 each. They also have a sleek looking diffuser I've had my eye on!
