I utilize spearmint in my diffuser regularly. It gives a nice balance to citrus oils and tames them a bit. While some citrus oils may give me so much energy that I can’t sit long enough to finish computer work in a single sitting, spearmint will uplift at the same time that it lends me a bit of calm and concentration — allowing me to finish my work happily. I also use it as one of my rotations to support my respiratory system and love it. It’s not good to diffuse when I’m cold as it tends to make me chillier . . . but when I’m hot, it’s fantastic! It can make me want to eat, so that should be noted.
Spearmint essential oil can also fight queasiness. I will add a drop of spearmint and a drop of ginger to 5mL (a teaspoon) of jojoba and rub it on my tummy — applied to the back of the neck and shoulder, this can also relieve head and neck tension. I also suffer from vertigo and the quesiness that goes with that on occasion. During those times, spearmint in an inhaler is very soothing.
For children under 6, peppermint is not suggested because of its high menthol content. Spearmint is a wonderful substitute for recipes that call for peppermint . . . . and safe for those little ones because it doesn’t have that high menthol.
Because of its antibacterial and antifungal properties, spearmint essential oil is often one that I add to skincare blends.
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such. With all essential oils:
Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas). The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
Keep away from children.
If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally. Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert. Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
