Mentha spicata (spearmint) oil
Why We Recommend
It's too bad that spearmint's botanical cousin, peppermint, gets most of the attention in the world of essential oils. Because compared to peppermint oil, spearmint oil contains lower concentrations of menthol making it so gentle that it can be used on children to help relieve sinus blockage, lung congestion and coughing. Spearmint essential oil can also be effective on headaches and for alleviating fatigue. We've heard that many have found success blending this soothing Aura Cacia spearmint oil with lavender oil to brew a calming bath for children or adults. Sounds delightful!
