Description

Spearmint Essential Oil (Mentha spicata) distilled leaf oil

Our Spearmint Essential Oil has a bright fresh aroma and a stimulating effect. Distilled from a hardy perennial herb with bright green leaves and small pink flowers. It is closely related to Peppermint with which it shares some properties.  However it has a more gentle nature and aroma than Peppermint making it preferable for those for whom Peppermint is too harsh.

Spearmint has a pale yellow to pale olive colour and a thin consistency.

Spearmint has a stimulating and uplifting action making it useful for mental fatigue and concentration. It may also be helpful for digestive and respiratory conditions where its clearing action may help clear feelings of congestion.

Use Spearmint in a diffuser for a clean fresh atmosphere.

Traced back at least to the 1st century, Spearmint was domesticated by the Romans. Who brought it to Britain, and then it traveled across to America with the first British colonists. Spearmint is an adaptable plant which will grow in various temperatures and soil conditions, explaining why it is now found worldwide.

A renowned culinary herb worldwide. Used by the ancient Greeks to scent bath water and also by the Romans.  It was popular for oral hygiene in Medieval times, and is still to this day used as and ingredient on many toothpastes and mouthwashes.
