Mint Essential Oils – Spearmint & Peppermint

Mint, mint everywhere!

I love minty things! Gum, candy, beverages, baked goods, lotions, toothpaste, the list of things you can make minty just goes on and on.  Have you tried pure therapeutic grade essential oils for your minty DIY projects?  So amazing, and so refreshing!

Spearmint is sweet and mildly minty, and a long-time favorite for gums and dental products.  It helps to freshen breath as well as encouraging a sense of focus and uplifted mood.  It’s also helpful for occasional digestive upset.

Peppermint has long been used as a multipurpose plant.  It’s useful for alleviating head and neck soreness, digestive discomfort, healthy respiratory function, and for encouraging feelings of alertness.  When you have the purest and best oils, they are very potent and concentrated.

1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil = 28 cups of Peppermint Tea!

Whether in the kitchen, the bathroom or the diffuser, Spearmint and Peppermint essential oils are amazing and versatile.  Find out here which essential oils I use and recommend because of their purity and effectiveness.  This is especially important if you’ll be ingesting oils, whether in foods, beverages or dental products.

 

A Few Easy Recipes for Mint Oils

Spearmint Peppermint Essential OilStrawberry Mint Water

Add a drop of Spearmint or Peppermint to a large pitcher of water.  Stir in several strawberries and refrigerate to blend flavors.

Throat Relief Peppermint Tea

Heat 1 cup water.  Using a toothpick, swirl in Peppermint and Lemon essential oils.  Stir in 1 tsp raw honey.

*Toothpick Swirl:  Sometimes, one drop of pure therapeutic grade essential oil is too much.  In that case, you can dip the point of a toothpick into the hole in the top of your essential oil bottle, and swirl that around in the beverage.  Just right!

    Peppermint and Chocolate go great together, as in brownies, fudge, cookies, muffins, etc. But my favorite way to use Peppermint is to rub a drop into my palms, breathe it in, and rub a little on my temples for headaches. So cooling and can make you feel uplifted in no time! Looking forward to trying Spearmint, too.
