Spearmint Essential Oil - 100% Pure - Aromae 12 ml
Essential Oil of Spearmint is extracted by steam distillation of flowering tops of Spearmint plant. The main components of this oil are Alpha Pinene, Beta Pinene, Carvone, Cineole, Caryophyllene, Linalool, Limonene, Menthol and Myrcene.
Although its aroma matches that of Peppermint, due to the presence of Menthol, its Menthol content is negligible by comparison. Spearmint has been a substitute for peppermint in times of poor availability and possesses similar medicinal properties and compounds in its essential oil. Its use dates back to ancient Greece.
The benefits of Spearmint Essential Oil can be attributed to its anti septic, anti spasmodic, carminative, cephalic, emenagogue, insecticide, restorative and stimulant properties.
Blending: Blends well with the essential oils of Basil, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Rosemary and Jasmine.
Caution: A known emenagogue, avoid during pregnancy.
