Spearmint Essential Oil - Origin:Oregon - Botanical name:Mentha spicata
The use of spearmint oil dates back to ancient times. In Ayurvedic medicine, it was used to treat digestive issues, skin problems, and headaches. The Greeks added it to baths. They also used it to whiten teeth and heal mouth sores. The essential oil is produced by steam distillation of the leaves. There are some who find peppermint EO too strong and use spearmint instead. Spearmint is gentler because it has lower amounts of menthol than peppermint. This makes it a good choice for children. Spearmint EO is used in toothpaste, breath mints, mouthwash, chewing gum, and for culinary purposes. Common uses: Placed in a diffuser to clear he mind and lift your spirit, it can be energizing and revitalizing, a drop added to any dessert, drink, salad, or entree adds flavor and promotes digestion, for occasional upset stomach, add 1-2 drops to water and drink, add a few drops to your bath water for relaxation.
