Spearmint Essential Oil
Spearmint essential oil has been most commonly used for flavouring in candies and toothpaste – in fact you’ve probably been ingesting it for years. However, there are many therapeutic uses of spearmint to consider, as well.
- Promotes digestion and helps reduce occasional stomach upset
- Supports healthy respiratory function
- Provides a refreshing aroma that clears the mind and uplifts mood
- Promotes oral health
Emotionally, it can help uplift a person’s mood, especially if they are suffering depression, stress, or mental exhaustion. It can be energizing, revitalizing, and maybe even encouraging. Many feel it inspires a sharpness of mind and confidence in sharing your thoughts or “putting yourself out there”.
Spearmint blends well with basil, lavender, peppermint, and rosemary essential oils. Depending on your uses for this oil, substitutes may include peppermint or wintergreen essential oils.
