Best Ways to Use Spearmint Essential Oil

Spearmint is a common ingredient in toothpaste, chewing gum, and candies, but the plant offers much greater value than just a nice flavor. The refreshing scent helps to energize the body, natural anti-inflammatory properties alleviate pain, and natural antibacterial power aids in treating infection. Because of many of its versatile uses, spearmint essential oil is often one of the first oils added to a user’s personal collection.

What Can Spearmint Essential Oil Be Used For?

Relieves Gastrointestinal Distress

Gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, and indigestion are all no match against the natural power of spearmint essential oil. For diarrhea, the oil helps to ease the muscle spasms and contractions that cause diarrhea within the body. For nausea, spearmint has a natural ability to settle and soothe an upset stomach. If you’re plagued with constipation, the same properties that relieve the muscles spasms associated with diarrhea also help to soothe and relax muscles to make your digestive system work more regularly.

Treats Bacterial Infections

If you’re suffering from some type of bacterial infection, diffusing spearmint essential oil with a nebulizing diffuser and inhaling those vapors into the air can give your immune system a boost. Spearmint essential oil is jam packed with antibacterial properties, which helps the body to treat infections naturally.

Improves Brain Function

The refreshing scent of spearmint doesn’t just smell nice, it actually helps to improve cognitive function. Spearmint essential oil has stimulant capabilities, which triggers brain and nerve function to clear away brain fog and help you to feel alert, alive, and ready for anything.

Cools the Body Down

Spearmint has a cool and refreshing scent, which not only helps to keep you alert, it also helps to cool you down. If you feel particularly warm, stressed, or unable to relax, the cooling nature of spearmint in a diffuser can help to reduce your temperature to a comfortable and balanced level.

Best Ways to Use Spearmint Essential Oil

Speeds up Healing and Reduces Inflammation

Whether you’re healing from an illness, an infection, or an injury, spearmint essential oil can help your body to rejuvenate itself. Spearmint holds within it natural anti-inflammatory properties, as well as regenerative properties that help your body to heal quickly.

Improves Metabolism

Spearmint essential oil doesn’t just stimulate the brain, it also stimulates the metabolism. For those who have been struggling to keep true to their diet, diffusing spearmint essential oil can effectively curb your appetite and snack cravings, while giving your metabolism a much needed boost. Looking to stop that late-night snack craving? Place a few drops in your diffuser during that time of night you’re most likely to reach for the refrigerator door.

Provides Cold Symptom Relief

Cold symptoms are notoriously miserable, and so many people will try anything they can to find relief at onset of a cold. Spearmint essential oil helps to boost the immune system, relax the body and mind, and decongests to give you much needed relief you’ve been longing for.

Natural Cleaning Solution

Spearmint essential oil isn’t just good for your body when diffused, it’s also good for your home when mixed with white vinegar as a cleaning agent. With more and more families opting for natural home cleaning solutions, spearmint disinfects while leaving behind a fresh and invigorating scent.

Blending Spearmint Essential Oil With Other Oils

Spearmint essential oil doesn’t have to be used on its own. The oil is one that mixes well with various other oils, and when used in conjunction with partner oils, can hold even more benefits. For instance, using spearmint essential oil with lavender essential oil creates a blend that can work wonders when you’re not feeling well and it’s keeping you from getting quality sleep. If you’re looking for a good effective energy boost in the morning, mixing spearmint essential oil with lime essential oil can leave you feeling refreshed from the inside out.

I am learning something new about essential oils every time I visit. I grow spearmint for the scent, and repelling mosquitoes. My local Asian restaurant uses fresh in their cooking so I drop off for them.
