Our organically crafted Spearmint Essential Oil is steam distilled from minty green leaves of the Mentha spicata plant, also known as Common Mint or Garden Mint, growing in USA. Spearmint is popularly known as the minty, breath-freshening flavoring agent used in oral hygiene products - including gum and candies - which leaves a cool, tingling sensation that leaves the mouth feeling clean. Aromatically, Spearmint Oil is a top note, with a beautiful, sweet, lively, cool, minty green aroma with subtle fruity characteristics.
Spearmint Essential Oil is the gentler, sweeter and less potent version of Peppermint Essential Oil - Peppermint will have an immediate strong aroma of Menthol, whereas Spearmint has a wonderfully refreshing, sweet minty aroma due to the predominance of one molecule: l-Carvone, a ketone that bears no potential toxicity. This makes Spearmint more suitable for use with children and others who may find Peppermint too strong or too stimulating. For this reason, it has also earned the nickname
The Gentler Mint Oil.
