Spearmint Essential Oil
Spearmint Leaf Essential Oil
For many people, peppermint essential oil may be too strong for them, so they turn to spearmint leaf essential oil for the milder mint. Also known as the garden mint, spearmint has a distinct aroma and is often used in culinary dishes to add a refreshing touch and contrast. Spearmint leaf essential oil is great for aromatherapy, as its minty aroma helps with fatigue, mood, and focus.
Use spearmint essential oil for aromatherapy by inhaling the aroma with a diffuser, straight out of the bottle, on clothes, blended with carrier oils, or in your bathwater. Spearmint leaf essential oil is a great mood booster for when you’re having a long day or you need a pick-me-up. Inhaling this fresh aroma induces positive emotions to lift your spirits and feel good. Spearmint essential oil is a natural stress reliever to promote alertness and positivity. When using spearmint leaf essential oil, it is important to dilute it with a carrier oil, like jojoba oil or MCT oil (fractionated coconut oil), since spearmint is irritating when used directly on the skin. Diluting the oil allows you to use the oil on your skin without irritation and provides you the same benefits!
