Spearmint Essential Oil has a scent similar to Peppermint Oil but its milder effects have earned it the nickname “The Gentler Mint Oil”.
If you don't have any Peppermint Oil you can substitute Spearmint because it has many of the same attributes. Unlike Peppermint however, it has much less menthol content and this milder nature makes Spearmint a natural choice when treating children or the elderly.
Let's start with some basic information; a brief description of where the oil comes from, what it contains and how it is obtained.
Spearmint Essential Oil has decongestant properties which can help treat asthma and respiratory congestion.
Two of the principal constituents of Spearmint Essential Oil are carvone and limonene. These natural constituents are very uplifting and have the ability to elevate your mood and reduce depression.
When your mood is uplifted, you will also find that your power to focus your mind is also improved.
In order to receive these benefits, try diffusing a few drops of Spearmint Oil and enjoy the pleasant minty aroma they provide.
Much like Peppermint, Spearmint Essential Oil promotes digestion and has the ability to calm an upset stomach and naturally reduce gas. This effect is probably the best known result of consuming Spearmint Oil.
Drink a drop of oil in your favorite hot beverage or add it to a glass of drinking water.
If you don't like the taste, you can put a drop in a gelatin capsule and take it with some food.
Spearmint Essential Oil contains menthol which can help stop nausea and vomiting and, together with its invigorating scent, help you breathe easier at such times.
Application methods include putting the oil directly on pressure points on your feet, inhalation or massage.
When applying Spearmint to your feet a drop or two can be used undiluted.
You can also enjoy its fresh uplifting scent by diffusing the oil.
