Product Description

Spearmint Essential Oil

Description: Spearmint Essential Oil (Mentha spicata) (also known green mint, or our lady’s mint) is steam distilled from the flowering tops of the herbs. Spearmint Essential Oil is sourced from the USA and is Therapeutic Quality.

Aroma: Spearmint Essential Oil is a milder, gentler cousin of Peppermint essential oil. Spearmint has a significantly lower menthol content (0.5%) compared to Peppermint (40%). As a result, Spearmint essential oil is less bracing than Peppermint, but still has many of the same properties with a clean, refreshing scent, a sweeter startm and a more floral finish.

Uses: Spearmint Essential Oil has been used to relieve the symptoms of headaches such as pain and nausea, and to combat fatigue, nervousness, and digestive complaints. It has carminative, cephalic, emenagogue, antiseptic, antispasmodic, and restorative properties, and has also been used as natural insecticide.

Spearmint Essential Oil blends well with tea tree, rosemary, basil, eucalyptus, clary sage, lavender and marjoram, as well as with other mints to create a more complex minty scent.

Precautions: Spearmint Essential Oil can be irritating to the skin, so it is important to dilute (5%) in a carrier oil (95%) such as fractionated coconut, or sweet almond oils for muscle massage; or dilute with evening primrose oil for neck, shoulder and temple massage for migraines or headaches.

Main Natural Constituents: Spearmint Essential Oil contains alcohols, esters, oxides, hydrocarbons, and ketones; it’s main components include menthol, alpha-and beta-pinene, linalool, caryophyllene, cavone, cineole, limonene, and myrcene.
