Organic Spearmint Essential Oil
Description: Organic Therapeutic Quality Spearmint Essential Oil (Mentha spicata) is also known as garden or common spearmint, green mint, or our lady’s mint. Our Spearmint Oil is sourced from USA and steam distilled from the organically grown flowering tops of the herbs.
Organic Spearmint Essential Oil Aroma
Spearmint Essential Oil is a milder, gentler cousin of Peppermint essential oil. Spearmint has a significantly lower menthol content (0.5%) compared to Peppermint (40%). As a result, Spearmint essential oil is less bracing than Peppermint, but still has many of the same properties with a clean, refreshing scent with a sweeter start and a more floral finish.
Spearmint Oil blends well with tea tree, rosemary, basil, eucalyptus, clary sage, lavender and marjoram, as well as with other mints to create a more complex minty scent.
Like all of our Artisan Aromatics essential oils, enfleurage oils, absolutes and blends, this oil has been carefully selected for its therapeutic quality. Then, to ensure maximum freshness and potency, it is bottled by hand in USA only after orders are received.
Precautions: Spearmint Oil can be irritating to the skin, so it is important to dilute (5%) in a carrier oil (95%) such as fractionated coconut, or sweet almond oils for muscle massage; or dilute with evening primrose oil for neck, shoulder and temple massage for migraines or headaches.
Organic Essential Oils: Organic essential oils are considered by some to be safer for personal use since the components were not chemically processed nor the plants exposed to pesticides. All of our organic essential oils meet the standards to be labeled as organic. Our Spearmint Essential Oil was steam distilled from flowering tops of spearmint plants and not chemically extracted nor artificially created.
In addition to our organic spearmint, we also offer our regular therapeutic quality spearmint essential oil.
IMPORTANT: All issues that pertain to your physical or mental health should be discussed with and supervised by a licensed health care professional. Keep all essential oils away from and out of reach of children. We recommend you consult a trained aromatherapist before using essential oils with children under 16 years of age.
