I've used YL's peppermint for migraines, and while it has helped, after awhile it starts to smell like gasoline to me and worsens the headache. EOX's peppermint has worked wonders on my migraines and never given me the smell that YL's seems to. I'm very happy with the quality of EOX and have switched from YL as a result.
