History: There are many who believe that peppermint oil is just too strong and use spearmint oil instead. Mixing the two is another popular option. No matter your sensitivity, Spearmint essential oil is gentler than peppermint oil, especially for children. Although the oils possess similar properties, spearmint contains lower amounts of menthol compared to peppermint oil.

The use of spearmint oil dates back to ancient times. This perennial herb originated from the Mediterranean region. In Ayurvedic medicine, it was used to treat digestive conditions, skin problems, and headaches. The historical record shows that it was used extensively in ancient Greece. It was added to baths and used to treat sexually transmitted diseases, whiten teeth, and heal mouth sores. In modern times, this essential oil is still widely used as a cure for digestive discomfort, as well as for menstrual problems and nausea.

Therapeutic Properties: The therapeutic properties of Spearmint oil are antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, cephalic, emenagogue, insecticide, restorative and stimulant substance.

Suggested Uses:
• Aromatherapy
• Massage/bath oil blends
• Perfumery
• Insecticide
• Disinfectant

Because of its menthol content, spearmint oil is often used in aromatherapy to help treat fatigue, headaches, migraines, nervousness, and even digestive problems. Because spearmint oil has antiseptic properties (due to the presence of menthol, myrcene, and caryophyllene), it can protect wounds and ulcers from infection and even help them heal faster. Spearmint oil can also treat common respiratory problems, such as colds, nasal congestion, asthma, and flu.
