The mild, sweet, minty aroma of spearmint essential oil is uplifting and comforting. This is a favorite to add to the diffuser, as it compliments many other essential oils.
What it’s For
Sometimes the aroma of peppermint is a bit too assertive. Spearmint has the same cool, minty aroma, but is a bit milder and sweeter. Citrus Fresh contains a hint of spearmint to balance out the bold citrus aromas in the blend. Diffusing spearmint helps to purify and cleanse the environment and combat the most stubborn odors. It also supports the digestive system when applied topically.
On an emotional level, spearmint essential oil helps open the heart and solar plexus chakra. This is key for facilitating emotional release, especially when releasing old beliefs and opening the mind to change. It also helps facilitate self trust and intuition.
L-carvone is the primary constituent in spearmint essential oil. This ketone is very cleansing and purifying, and it also provides the characteristic sweet, minty aroma. Ketones support the digestive and respiratory systems and soothe the emotions.
Who Should Use Spearmint Essential Oil
If you love peppermint, but just want something a bit milder, try spearmint. When applied topically, spearmint brings relief from minor respiratory or digestive complaints. It is also a wonderful choice in the diffuser, as most people enjoy its mild aroma that blends well with other essential oils.
Don’t Have Spearmint Essential Oil?
Go ahead and reach for the trusty bottle of peppermint instead. While it can be somewhat more aggressive, the pleasing, minty aroma is very similar to spearmint.
