Spearmint Essential Oil

Spearmint plants have been used since ancient times for many things. Spearmint is extracted from the flowering tops of the spearmint plant. Today spearmint is still used in natural home remedies to support healthy digestion, by way of helping to relax intestines and muscles of the digestive tract it is supportive to normal digestion. It can calm tummies as well on occasion.

Spearmint is contained in two of my favorite blends Citrus Fresh and Slique Essence (which is part of our healthy weight loss program).  To me it smells so refreshing and it reminds me of my favorite gum without the bad stuff the gum contains!  Don’t you love the smell of spearmint?


How We Use Spearmint

We can reap the benefits of the spearmint plant by using spearmint therapeutic grade essential oil from Young Living. I enjoy placing a drop in my favorite beverage using Spearmint Vitality.

Spearmint essential oil is in one of the popular Young Living blends called Citrus Fresh. It tastes great in water especially with a little reminder of summer. The scent of spearmint is minty and refreshing and may help release emotional blocks and restore feelings of emotional balance. Today we use this beneficial Spearmint Vitality essential oil as a supplement. It can be added to 00 veggie capsule or added to your favorite beverage. Regular spearmint feels cooling and wonderful when used topically. Apply to your muscles during a massage. It is also soothing when applied over the abdomen particularly during a normal menstrual cycle. I also love diffusing this oil alone or in combination with other essential oils.

Spearmint contains the naturally occurring constituents of menthol, carvone, and limonene. Check out these components for all the wonderful properties of Spearmint.

Some cautions were noted if you are or may become pregnant, as with all remedies, supplements and OTC meds please seek the advice of your healthcare provider.

Cardamom (Ellettaria cardamomum) historically was used in the Middle Ages by Indian healers and was nicknamed “Grains of Paradise”. It was considered to be a valuable spice in Ancient Greece and Rome and was use by the king.
