What it is:
A pure therapeutic grade oil steam distilled from spearmint.
What it does:
Spearmint has long been used to combat respiratory and digestive conditions. This mild, warm, and minty essential oil helps to ease nausea and menstrual discomfort, can increase metabolism to help weight loss, and is an excellent relaxer to relieve stress, depression, and anxiety. Because it is not as strong as peppermint, spearmint oil is considered a safer substitute for children.
Its properties include: analgesic, anesthetic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, carminative, cephalic, cholagogues, decongestant, digestive, diuretic, expectorant, febrifuge, hepatic, nervine, stimulant, stomachic, and tonic.
