THE HISTORY OF SPEARMINT OIL

Spearmint Essential Oil is commonly known as the minty, breath-freshening flavoring agent used in oral hygiene products; including gum and candies, which leaves a cool, tingling sensation that leaves the mouth feeling clean.
Believed to be the oldest of the Mints, for centuries Spearmint has been used for its digestive benefits, often being served with or after meals to prevent or relieve gas, bloating, nausea, and indigestion.
Spearmint Essential Oil is obtained from the bright green Mentha spicata herb, and its name is derived from the fact that it has pointed, spear-shaped leaves. Spearmint is also referred to as Garden Spearmint, Green Mint, Fish Mint, Our Lady’s Mint, Spire, Green, Lamb, and Pea.
The Spearmint herb began to be used in Ayurvedic medicine for the same purpose, but to also soothe skin problems and headaches.
Having originated in the Mediterranean region, Spearmint was widely used in Greece as an aphrodisiac. It was also used to scent bath water, treat sexually transmitted diseases, clear the voice, and cure hiccups.
Compared to Peppermint Oil, which contains a higher level of Menthol that often makes it too strong for some users and sometimes causes side effects such as skin irritations, Spearmint’s scent is softer and its effects are milder.
For this reason, it has earned the nickname “The Gentler Mint Oil.” Spearmint is the ideal Mint-related option for children, the elderly, and those with sensitive skin. The sweet, invigorating scent of Spearmint has a balancing and uplifting effect, which makes it beneficial for enhancing focus, positivity, and optimism and for deodorizing unpleasant scents.
Physicians and herbalists, such as Pliny, prescribed Mint to restore and revitalize the body. When Spearmint was introduced to Britain, this herb with a spicy, herbaceous fragrance finally became known for its medicinal properties, and it began to be used to relieve nausea, vomiting, and respiratory issues, including common colds.

There are several processes used in the production of essential oils; each in turn applied to the various plant matter being used to produce a specific oil; the most common method is Steam Distillation.

In steam distillation raw organic material is loaded directly into the distillery, which basically operates with the same principals as a large pressure cooker. Traditionally, the steam is produced outside the pot, and is piped into to mix with the vegetative material. Under pressure, the steam draws out the plant oils, which are then forced from the container and sent through a cooling chamber where the oil and water mixture turns from steam into a liquid form.
