Distilled from the leaves of the spearmint plant, Spearmint Essential Oil has a delicate mint aroma. With a lower menthol concentration than several other popular essential oils, Spearmint is considered safer to use around children while still providing many of the same active properties of the other oils.
Ancient Grecian literature speaks of many different uses for spearmint, detailing uses for many different communicable diseases as well as uses for digestion, relaxation and even headache relief. Spearmint in modern days is a component in many different respiratory, tension relief and even digestion-related salves.
Topical Use: Dilute with a carrier oil and massage over abdomen for digestive discomfort. Dilute with a carrier oil and rub on chest and/or feet for respiratory support. NOTE: always check for sensitivity on a small area before using liberally. Percentage of Spearmint Essential Oil in the dilution should be no more than 1.7% (1 drop to 1 teaspoon)
Diffusing: Spearmint is a great essential oil to diffuse by itself, especially when experiencing a headache or to help calm breathing. It also mixes well with Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Rosemary essential oils.
Household uses: For insecticide: Can be added to a carrier oil or lotion to help deter insects or added to a spray bottle with water to spray around doors and windows to act as a barrier deterrent.
Spearmint is also a great natural disinfectant and can be used either alone or combined with Eucalyptus Essential Oil to create a wonderful, non-toxic household cleaner. Add 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1/2 cup distilled water, and 10-12 drops Spearmint Essential Oil (add several drops of Eucalyptus, if desired).
Pregnancy/Nursing: Avoid during pregnancy/If pregnant or lactating, consult a practitioner before use.

This oil is one of my favorites. I love the fresh, minty scent. I use it in our diffuser and in my homemade cleaning solution. My husband comments that our bathrooms smell so good after I clean them! I appreciate this oil's disinfectant quality as well.
This oil blends well with so many different scents. Spearmint combined with lavender and lemon helps with my allergy and respiratory symptoms. I'm hoping it will work well as a mosquito repellent combined with citronella!
Smells great, I love the clean feeling it gives in the home when diffused and a drop on my tongue freshens my breath!
Moderator’s Note: We recommend suspending essential oils for internal use in another fatty carrier (high quality coconut or olive oil are great options) to avoid burns and other internal damage from highly potent essential oils.
When I read Beeyoutiful's review of this new oil, and they mentioned it helping with headaches, I figured I'd give it a try. I love the smell of spearmint, so if nothing else, it would be good for aromatherapy.
My expectations weren't high for headache help, since I usually can't get rid of mine with anything other than a Tylenol Sinus or Ibuprofen. BUT, I got a very pleasant surprise when I "experimented" with it on my headache for the first time! We were headed on an errand, and I brought the bottle with me, sniffing it periodically while my husband drove. I had brought my meds, assuming I would need them, but by the time we arrived at our destination 15 minutes later, my bad headache was gone! I still had the lingering after-effects of the pain, but the pain itself was definitely gone.
This smells wonderful in my diffuser, and I love to put a few drops of it in my bath, sometimes mixed with a floral oil such as Geranium or Lavender. I add Epsom Salt to my baths as well. (Word of caution on this, if you put Spearmint oil in your bath, try just a small amount at first--1 or 2 drops. I do notice that it sometimes has a bit of a stinging effect on my skin if I use too much.)
How do your essential oils compare to the very popular "home party" ones?
What oil do you dilute the blends?

We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.
