Spearmint essential oil has similar properties to those of Peppermint but is a gentler oil and so more suitable for use with children. Diluted in a carrier oil it makes a good massage for the abdomen to help calm and soothe the stomach.

its refreshing and restoring scent may also be helpful in offering a natural lift if energy levels are low. Naturally clearing, its also a lovely oil to use if you're feeling bunged up from a cold. 

A wonderful oil to use all year round but you may find it especially lovely to use in the summer months due to its cooling effects; try adding a few drops to a foot spa to help revive tired feet. 

Burning or vaporising Spearmint can help in the same way as using it in massage.

Gorgeous mint chew smell! Highly reminiscent of childhood sweeties. Good for adding freshness to cleaning blends. Powerful deterrent to mice, they utterly loathe the smell!
