Spearmint: Mentha spicata (L.)
Why spearmint? If you like the freshness of peppermint, but prefer something a smidge sweeter, try spearmint. A common ingredient in dental products, like toothpaste and gum, spearmint has a characteristically refreshing aroma and flavor, which makes a great addition to room spray and cleansing blends when you're looking for a boost.
Quality Assured: Our certified organic spearmint essential oil is responsibly sourced from India. The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
Independent third-party lab reports including GC/MS and pesticide testing results are available upon request.
