Originating from the Mediterranean region, spearmint gets its common name from the spear like shape of its leaves.
It has been used since ancient times by the Greeks to treat various ailments, such as mouth sores and sexually transmitted diseases.
Today spearmint essential oil is often used as an alternative to peppermint oil. Because it also contains menthol, it has similar therapeutic properties to peppermint oil. But seeing as it is not as strong as peppermint, it is not as harsh on the skin.
This essential oil is extracted through the steam distillation of the flowering tops of the plant.
Spearmint essential oil is antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal. In so being it acts as an excellent disinfectant, for both internal and external injuries. It also helps wounds heal faster and protects them from further infection.
Spearmint oil is a relaxant. It relaxes both body and mind, reducing stress, sharpening cognitive functions, while relaxing the muscles and intestines. This eases muscle spasms and provides relief from stomach aches, indigestion, vomiting and other stress related symptoms. It also helps relieve insomnia and feelings of edginess, while improving concentration.
For those suffering from problems related to menstruation, this essential oil can provide effective relief. It eases the symptoms of menstruation, such as abdominal pain, fatigue and nausea.
Spearmint oil increases blood circulation, boosting the metabolism and strengthening the immune system. Helping the body restore itself, spearmint essential oil repairs damage done to the body. It also helps the body to recover quickly after an illness.
