Description

Why should I add Spearmint essential oil to my collection? Similar to other mint essential oils, Spearmint essential oil regularly appears in food and beverages, has an invigorating yet soothing aroma, and gives a tingling, invigorating sensation to the skin. However, Spearmint essential oil is a much milder alternative to other mint essential oils, making it perfectly suited to those with sensitive skin.
