    I have been successfully using Eucalyptus Peppermint Gum wiht a post-pneumonia patient, providing breathing relief and protective antibacterial support.

    Your Fragonia’s aroma is simply delightful and combined with Zunzea is amazing for sore muscles. My mom had a 12% lung capacity improvement after using peppermint gum in her diffuser every night for 3 weeks.
    Her doctor asked what she was doing cause it was unusual to see such improvement in so little time. The only thing that she did was use your Peppermint Gum in the diffuser every night. Thank you for your wonderful oils. Your making this world a better place one drop at a time!

    Can I use it for own toothpaste?

    • admin (store manager)

      Hello Anna,
      technically speaking we are not allowed to formally suggest it would be ok to include in toothpaste, Lemon Myrtle, diluted is accepted to used in this way. Hope this is helpful

    I purchased the Peppermint Gum after reading the great reviews and Lynette’s, in particular, got my attention when she mentioned her Mum had a 12% increase in lung capacity (I have Bronchiectasis). I now have it in a burner (electric) every night and I no longer cough at night and my chest feels so much clearer! I will always have lung problems due to the disease but having learned how to ward off infection and with the Peppermint Gum now helping me – I am confident I can minimise the number of infections. I’ve also got my sister using it now and her smoker’s cough has totally eased since using it in her diffuser! thank you EA!
