Spearmint Essential Oil EXTRA

Adam Michael has this to say ” I absolutely love Hermitage spearmint, green, herbaceous, candy sweet, cooling, bubble gum minty. This is just like smelling the leaves of spearmint or chewing spearmint flavoured gum. Blend with peppermint for the double mint effect, adds unique freshness to florals, imparts unique effects into lavender blends and can be useful for further building jasmine notes.

Produced by steam distillation of the flowering tops and leaves, pale yellow in colour and of of a pourable viscosity. In aromatherapy and due to the gentle aroma, spearmint is often preferred by aromatherapists to peppermint when treating children and spearmint is good in massage for settling upset stomachs. Overall spearmint is a cheerful, uplifting and energising aroma that is lovely added to the oil burner.”

    My relationship with Mint is that of an acolyte to a venerable guru: never fully comfortable, often misleading, essentially life-changing and invariably respectful. I eat Peppermint leaves, drink its tea and apply its essential oil on the skin on a daily basis to deal with migraines and heartburn. This scent is ingrained in my sleep, my breath and my heart.

    Thus, it was a bit of a shock when I first sniffed this offering. Spearmint has most of the qualities I associate with Peppermint, but is, at the same time, wholly different. It is, as one might guess, less harsh and it hides, underneath a cloud of menthol and sweet herbal vapors, a beautiful anisic foundation. This, alone, makes it more suitable for perfumery than the frequently utilitarian Peppermint (which I adore, but faces the hardship of being everywhere, from candies to toothpaste).

    I’ve tried this Spearmint with Patchouli, Ylang Ylang Grades 1 and 3, Apple Liquid, Lime, Oakmoss, and Vanilla, with good results all along the board. I advise using it with a light hand in order to add layers to other aromas and not as a centerpiece, due to its high relative strength and distinctive odor profile. It’s a superb top note that lingers into the heart phase, becoming more akin to Marjoram Sweet and licorice as the time passes.
