    Essintial Oils are diluted. Pet vitamins smell like hay.

    Overall Experience:

    The oils are really weak. The oil dispenser is very sloppy and runs all over the bottle. I used some peppermint oil with a carrier oil at the mix ratio they recommended and can't even smell the peppermint. I ended up adding the entire 1/2 oz bottle of peppermint oil to 4 oz of carrier oil and could not even smell the peppermint. The oil does not give you that warm feeling of peppermint, definitely much weaker than any I have ever had in the past.

    Same thing with the sweet orange oil when making a body spritz or room spray.

    I used the dilution chart they sent me via email.

    I also purchased the magnesium oil, I was leary when reading the questions and answers because they were recommending to use 4 to 5 sprays in one answer, but in another answer stated 4 to 5 sprays delivered approximately 60 mg of magnesium. The recommended dosage I have gotten from everyone else is 550 mg a day. But I ordered it anyway. When I received it the bottle had no mention of how many mgs or how much to use on the label, no directions at all. I went with calculating 550 mg from the statement that 4 to 5 sprays delivered approximately 60 mgs. Using this calculation that ends up being about 36 to 45 sprays for each application. I am not feeling the relief from this magnesium oil that I do from Dr Shealy's lotion. I think it is also very diluted.

    I also purchased Ultra Chewable Pet Vitamins for dogs and cats. I should have snapped when I bought them that you normally would not give a dog and a cat the same dosage of vitamins because they are so different, their foods are not the same, but, I did not. It did not matter anyway, my animals won't touch them. They smell like hay. I let Piping Rock know that the animals did not like the chewable pills and that they smelled like hay, but they did not seem to think it mattered much.

    However, I did enjoy the sesame sticks and sunflower seed. They were pretty good, but, the bag does not say where they come from.

    I am not sure I will order from Piping Rock again.

    The items did arrive quickly and they were packed well. I was missing a sprayer pump for the spray bottles of Magnesium, but when notified they dropped some in the mail right away.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
