Ease digestive discomfort and soothe and calm the nerves with therapeutic Spearmint essential oil.
Named for its spear-shaped leaves, the spearmint plant grows in slender spikes just 30cm tall and forms small clusters of white, pink or purple flowers. These blossoms require extended exposure to sunlight before they can be harvested, but once they are ready, they are carefully steamdistilled to release the aromatic organic compounds used to create Spearmint essential oil.
Spearmint has been widely used as a refreshing additive in gums, candies and dental products, but the fresh, minty and sweet aromas of Spearmint essential oil have traditionally been used in aromatherapy to ease digestive discomfort, reduce common cold symptoms and soothe and calm the nerves.

Spearmint is believed to be the oldest of the mints, heralded over centuries for its digestive benefits - often being served after meals to relieve gas, bloating and nausea. It has traditionally been used in aromatherapy to ease digestive discomfort, reduce common cold symptoms and relieve symptoms of stress. The aroma of Spearmint is softer than that of Peppermint and is often referred to as “the gentler mint oil”. Its fresh, restorative and uplifting aromas help soothe and calm the nerve.
