We hope you find a way to sneak a little relaxation into your day, whether it be snuggling up in bed for a few extra minutes in the morning or laughing with a friend. Spearmint is the essential oil that can help you steal those little moments of calm back as it gently uplifts with a minty and bright aroma. Often confused with Peppermint, which has a cooling and stimulating effect, Spearmint is warming and more nuanced. It is useful for headaches, depression, vertigo, and mental fatigue. Its digestive properties make it especially effective in remedying cramps, IBS and nausea. For thousands of the years, Spearmint's medicinal and therapeutic properties have been explored. The Ancient Greeks used it to restore the body while adding a lovely fragrance to their bathwater.
