How to Use Spearmint Essential Oil

posted in: Essential Oil Tips | 0

Spearmint essential oil

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 it can also be used to support healthy gums and teeth. Spearmint has been used for centuries for its digestive benefits and to promote healthy respiratory function. Its sweet, refreshing aroma is cleansing and uplifting, making it ideal to help clear the mind and evoke a positive mood. Spearmint essential oil is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use on children and those with sensitive skin. In cooking, Spearmint is frequently used in salads, drinks, and desserts; but it can also be used in home-made salad dressings and to marinate meats.
