SPEARMINT OIL


Spearmint oil is considered a milder alternative to other mint essential oils, and gentle enough to use topically or while cooking—without losing any of its freshness  

Description

Spearmint is a perennial plant that grows 11–40 inches tall and flourishes in temperate climates. It is widely used in gums, candies, and dental products for its minty taste, and to promote fresh breath. Spearmint has been used internally for centuries for its digestive benefits*. Its sweet, refreshing aroma is uplifting, making it ideal to diffuse while working or studying. Spearmint oil is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use topically on children and those with skin sensitivities. In cooking, Spearmint can be used in homemade salad dressings and to marinate meats, and is frequently used in salads, drinks, and desserts.

Uses

  • Diffuse Spearmint essential oil for a positive environment.  

  • Apply to toothbrush before brushing teeth for fresh breath.   

  • Add a drop or two to any dessert, drink, salad, or entrée for flavoring and to promote digestion.  

  • For occasional stomach upset, add one to two drops of Spearmint oil to water and drink.  

Directions for Use 

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice. 

Internal Use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.

Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. 

Cautions

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
