Spearmint has a clean, minty, refreshing aroma and is similar to Peppermint, but slightly sweeter and milder. It is pale yellow in colour and is steam distilled from the herb itself.
The aroma has a cleansing, energising effect that clears the mind and lifts the mood. It is also effective as a milder decongestant to Peppermint essential oil due to its ability to open the sinuses.
Spearmint essential oil is also commonly used to aid digestion and stomach discomfort.
