Nature/Essence – Soothing & Refreshing
FOR THE SKIN
Spearmint oil helps ease itching of the skin or scalp and has antiseptic and healing properties. Due to the lack of menthol it is gentle on the skin compared to Peppermint.
FOR THE BODY
Spearmint is a lovely digestive soother and tonic, great for colic, bloating, flatulence and indigestion. It is also ideal as an inhalation to ease travel sickness and nausea. Spearmint helps ease nasal, sinus or chest congestion and open the airways.
FOR THE MIND
Spearmint is uplifting and refreshing during times of mental fatigue and low mood. It gently stimulates and clears the mind to restore balance and focus.

Love the smell of this. So uplifting
I prefer a good blast of peppermint but this is a lovely subtle accent
Love the smell and amazing in my diffuser mixed with other oils.
The only thing is the pourer sometimes comes out a bit quickly.
Otherwise excellent product.
