Spearmint Essential Oil, China - Therapeutic properties of Spearmint have been reported in several publications. Michele Williams listed Spearmint as a mental stimulant good for "headaches, migraines, nervous strain, fatigue and stress." She further listed it as useful for relaxing stomach muscles, relief of hiccups, and various digestive issues. While the odor of the Chinese spearmint is not as sweet and nice as the spearmint from the USA its still a very usuable spearmint oil and has an even higher carvone content. Most of our competitors sell the 60% carvone material so keep that in mind when you do your comparison shopping.
