Young Living Essential Oil Single Spearmint - 5 ml - item # 3638:

The 5 ml Spearmint by Young Living Oils, also known as Mentha spicata - has a minty, slightly fruity scent, softer than Peppermint. A rich antioxidant, Spearmint helps support the respiratory and nervous systems and may help open and release emotional blocks leading to a sense of balance and well-being. Spearmint may also be used to enhance the flavor of food. The Spearmint plant originated in the Mediterranean region. The genus name Mentha comes from Roman mythology. According to legend, Prosperine killed a nymph named Menthe because of a love affair between Menthe and Prosperine's husband, Pluto. Pluto resurrected Menthe into the form of the fragrant plant we know today. Greeks used mint to scent their bath water and also as a perfume. It also is mentioned in the Bible as a portion of a tithe by the Pharisees. This Young Living Essential Oils product is widely accepted that the Pilgrims brought Spearmint to North America. The modern name Spearmint was derived from the leaves of the plant, which are spear-shaped. Of interesting note, the town of Mentha, Michigan was named after the plant and grows various mints as one of its principal industries. Spearmint is most commonly utilized for its scent or flavor in various internal and external products. The oil is used to flavor jellies, sauces, chewing gum, candy, iced tea, mouthwashes, toothpastes and breath mints.3 This Young Living Essential Oils product is also used as a scent in perfumes. Though not quite as potent (and therefore less commonly used) as Peppermint, M. spicata has been used to soothe indigestion, and other GI discomfort. The main constituent of the Spearmint oil, called carvone, is reputed to have antiseptic properties. Most of the studies done on Spearmint are laboratory or animal trials. One recent human study showed that chewing Spearmint gum while studying has positive effects upon memory. Spearmint by Young Living Essential Oils has an approximate ORAC of 5,398 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
