Spearmint – Essential Oil (Mentha spicata)
$7.99 – $36.82
Spearmint is commonly known as the minty, breath-freshening flavoring agent used in oral hygiene products such as toothpaste and mouthwash. It is Spearmint that leaves a cool, tingling sensation that leaves the mouth feeling clean. Spearmint gets its name from its spear-shaped leaves and is believed to be the oldest member of the Mint family. Its scent is softer and milder than that of Peppermint Essential Oil, making it ideal for children, the elderly, and those with sensitive skin.
Spearmint Oil is said to help reduce nasal congestion caused by the excessive buildup of phlegm and mucus in the nose and throat, thereby promoting easier breathing. It revitalizes the body and the mind by working to enhance mood and concentration, and by increasing circulation through the skin. Its anti-inflammatory quality is known to cool red, swollen, and itching skin and to help reduce the sensations of inflammation. It also helps to cleanse the pores and tighten the skin, which may potentially promote the speedy healing of minor abrasions. When inhaled, it can ease feelings of stress and nervousness, and diffusing Spearmint Oil while studying can boost concentration and reduce feelings of anxiety.
How to use:
A few drops in a diffuser can help with the congestion associated with a cold or allergies. Equal drops of Spearmint and Rosemary make a blend that will aid concentration and improve memory retention. Add 5 drops of essential oil to one teaspoon of Coconut oil and rub on the belly in a clockwise motion for digestive issues.
Blending tip: Spearmint is softer than its cousin Peppermint and is easier to blend with other oils without overshadowing them. It blends well with citruses like Orange and Mandarin, spices such as Cinnamon and resins such as Myrrh and Benzoin.
Cautions & Contraindications:
Should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding. Overexposure may cause headaches, nausea and lightheadedness. Keep away from children. May irritate the skin, dilute before using. For external use only.
