The oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the spearmint plants. The one I use personally is grown in Utah in the United States.

Spearmint oil is in one of my favorite professionally made blends called Citrus Fresh. It eases stress and lightens up the day when diffused! It contains several citrus essential oils including tangerine, lemon and grapefruit.

This section is a fun and easy reference guide for the Spearmint and the Essential Oil. It will tell you how to use it and what to use it for. It will also provide you with some fun suggestions, safety precautions for you and your pet!

Spearmint Plants - Experience Spearmint Essential Oil

What is the Genus Species? Mentha spicata CT Carvone

Why is this Information Important? While there are not many different species of Spearmint, there are many hybrids; and the species also produces chemotypes.

A chemotype (CT) is a designation that tells you that the species has different chemical constituents. This usually occurs because the plant is grown in a different area under a distinct climate that alters the chemistry.

The same rule of thumb goes for hybrids; so it always is a good idea to purchase your essential oils by Common Name and Genus Species so you know what you are getting!

Other Common Names for Spearmint Include: Green Mint, Garden Mint, Fish Mint and Our Lady’s Mint!

Where is the Name Derived From? Spearmint gets the common name from the pointed leaf tips which resemble "spears". The Genus derivative comes from a Latin word "mente" meaning "thought".
