Description Usage Supplement Facts Aromatherapy – or the use of essential oils – has been embraced since ancient days for promoting wellness and vitality. Research shows they hold exciting promise for supporting emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. Dr. Mercola's Organic Spearmint Essential Oil (Mentha spicata) offers a tantalizing sweet scent of fresh mint. This organic oil, steam-distilled from fresh flowering tops is invigorating, energizing, and refreshing. Some ideas for how to use Organic Spearmint Essential Oil: Topically/Massage: Highly concentrated, pure essential oils must be mixed with a carrier, such as Dr. Mercola's Organic Argan Oil, Jojoba or Rose Hip Seed Oil before topical use. Mix one to four drops per teaspoon of a carrier oil or cream and apply to your skin to refresh. You can add a few drops to liquid soap, body wash, shampoo or add to your bath water. Aromatherapy: Add a few drops to water in a diffuser or directly to a dry diffuser and enjoy the scent and mood benefits. Garden/Outdoor: Diffuse outdoors on your patio to repel mosquitoes, ants, flies, moths, and other insects. Use in a cream as a mosquito repellant.
