Spearmint (Organic) 50% in Jojoba 10 ml


Mentha spicata - USA

This variety of Spearmint oil has an intense warm, slightly green, herbaceous aroma. The carvone content is roughly 60-70%. It's penetrating and truly reminiscent of the crushed herb. It blends well with other mints. This lively Spearmint oil comes to the United States, where the flowering herb is steam distilled.


The main production areas of Spearmint essential oil are the Northwest USA, China, South America, Japan
Extraction: Steam distillation of the fresh herb in flower (flowering tops); generally in June and September.

Spearmint is also valuable for treating digestive symptoms including: indigestion; nausea; vomiting; motion sickness; colic; hiccough, flatulence; gastro-intestinal inflammation. As noted above, spearmint oil contains esters of butyric and caprylic acids. Butyric and caprylic acids are both used in naturopathic medicine. Butyric acid compounds (calcium butyrate and magnesium butyrate) are used to help normalize colon function. Butyric acid, a fatty acid formed naturally by colon bacteria, helps maintain a healthy pH in, and otherwise protects, the intestinal tract. There tends to be deficient colon production of butyric acid in individuals who suffer from food allergies, eczema, diverticulitis, gastrointestinal ulcers, colitis and other colon-related disorders. Caprylic acid, produced in small quantities by the body and commercially extracted from coconut oil or palm oil, is a fatty acid which exerts a potent antifungal action. Hence, caprylic acid supplementation is sometimes used to treat Candida albicans infection.

In general, Spearmint essential oil is helpful for individuals with weakened nervous and gastrointestinal systems. On a mental and emotional level, this may translate as overwhelm and the susceptibility to invasive influences caused by the erosive impact of emotional stress upon the gastrointestinal tract (decreased efficiency of liver and pancreas which encourages leaky gut syndrome), and the nervous system and kidneys (encouraging autotoxemia and enervation which leads to immunological weakness and microbial and/or parasitic infection).

Mild remedy with slight cumulative toxicity with prolonged usage Topical Safety Status: Non skin-irritant, non-sensitizing

Precautions: Internal use of Spearmint oil is cautioned, but not contraindicated, in children and pregnant women because of the ketone carvone, which some consider moderately neurotoxic. Also use caution on very sensitive skin.
