Spearmint essential oil

Spearmint essential oil

A sweeter, milder cousin of peppermint, spearmint is one of the best essential oils to keep on hand for children’s complaints. Like peppermint, it stimulates the mind, and on skin it calms itchiness and helps heal dermatitis. Vomiting, diarrhea, colic, and flatulence can all be addressed by a bit of spearmint, and it’s a good remedy for tension headaches and migraines. Spearmint is a mild muscle relaxant; try it for back spasms or hiccups.
