Many consider Spearmint to be a milder, gentler form of Peppermint.

Although their properties are similar, the two oils are slightly different chemically, with Spearmint having lower amounts of menthol. Because of this, it is not quite as intense and better suited for use with children and the elderly, and is equally as effective.

The antispasmodic properties of Spearmint make it ideal for childrenís digestive needs such as nausea (motion sickness), hiccups, flatulence, constipation, and diarrhea.

Spearmintís antispasmodic benefits also serve well to open up and refresh the respiratory pathways. It can be inhaled to help decongest sinus problems and respiratory infections.

Spearmint is less stimulating than Peppermint and is relaxing and uplifting. It is better than Peppermint for evening use, to avoid potential insomnia. It is useful in treating mental fatigue, depression and tension headaches.

It has proven antibacterial and antifungal topical applications for skin infections, cleansing the pores and refreshing the skin.

Spearmint is relaxing to muscles and nerves, which can relieve spasmodic coughs, abdominal aches, and muscles cramps. It is a mild diuretic.

It is also effective as an insecticide and keeps away mosquitoes, ants, flies, moths etc.
