Slightly sweet
This is a mild and slightly sweet mint, just like the description says. If you're looking for something that will hit you in the face like a box of a certain curiously strong peppermint, this is not what you want. This is very comforting and almost calming. It goes well with a variety of scents--I'm partial to mixing it ~60/40 with anise or 40/60 with lavender--and it behaves pretty well. I was unsure which peppermint to order and got this one on a whim, and I'm definitely not disappointed.

Candy Cane soap
I absolutely loved this peppermint essential oil. I made candy cane soap for Christmas as gifts. The bars were fabulous! They smelled so wonderful, they were a big hit! I love, love, love this scent! Next year I will be making more than this year!

Love this!
I seem to be having a peppermint fetish right now. Almost everything I am making has peppermint! I love this scent. I have not had any acceleration issues with it. In CP soap it has a nice minty scent. Not in your face or bold but very much peppermint. In lotion (I make a blend for feet in particular) it is amazing.

Mmmmmm...
At the beginning of August, I made a sample batch of goat's milk CP soap with this oil used at the "light" recommendation. There is truly no comparing it to the regular peppermint oil. This is so sweet and delicious, and it soaped beautifully. I love it.

Exactly what you'd expect
I've bought peppermint EO from a couple suppliers, with mixed results. This was low price, high quality, and the scent is just strong enough without being too much. It's perfect, and I'll be coming back for more!
