Spearmint, Tangerine and Lime Essential oils

Spearmint is probably one of my favorite mint oils.

Mind you, it used to Peppermint, and I do still love the effects and smell of that amazing oil.

But if and when you’ve had a chance to try a spearmint brownie, or smell a homemade bar of rosemary and spearmint soap, then you too may fall in love with this milder mint.

Lime and Tangerine (as well as Lemon oils) are never far out of reach at our house.

For these warmer months there is nothing more refreshing in a summer cocktail that a twist of lime or lemon or citrus!

With these oils on hand you won’t ever have to worry about the beverage bar not being stocked with fresh citrus.

And I never make guacamole anymore without my lime and cilantro oils handy.

You may know that our favored supplier runs these amazing special three times a year. BOGO deals are becoming as popular as Amazon Prime Day specials in our Industry!

Offered three times a year this is a great time to stock up or replenish your favorite oils.

Oral Health – D.I.Y. healthy chewing

Essential Oil Gum Recipe

What You Need

  • Six ounces of natural beeswax
  • 1 drop of clove essential oil
  • 2 drops of cinnamon essential oil

What You Do

  • Use or make a double broiler.
  • Melt your beeswax.
  • Add the essential oil drops.
  • Pour the mixture into a silicon mold or ice tray and freeze for 2-3 hours or until hardened.
  • Chew!

Important Note: Please do not use cheap essential oils for this recipe. You will be ingesting these oils as you chew the gum so I highly recommend you avoid brands that may have synthetic additives (which are not always listed on the bottle).

Our personal recommendation are DoTerra essential oils have been tested for purity and are labeled appropriately for internal use. But many cheaper oils aren’t safe to use internally due to how they were produced so be aware.

You can add a healthy sweetener such as xylitol or stevia if you like. I think the cinnamon oil added enough flavor but ultimately it’s up to you and your preference.

There are also other oils options to include as an alternative like Slim and Sassy Blend, Lemon, Grapefruit, Peppermint or Spearmint, and you can even consider OnGuard Blend.

Why use Clove Oil?

For many years, clove oil has been used in dentistry as a numbing agent. It’s powerful and safe as long as it is diluted (which the beeswax does in this recipe). Clove oil is the perfect solution when experiencing a bout of sensitive teeth after eating something cold or drinking a hot beverage and goes well with cinnamon.

And it has also been reported that clove oil decreases decalcification of teeth and actually stimulates remineralization. Now that is awesome!

Why Cinnamon Essential Oil?

Because it tastes good! It has also been linked to improved immune function because it is naturally purifying and germ-destroying. Cinnamon also lifts mood and helps to relieve sadness or self-doubt. And some even believe it to be a natural aphrodisiac – WHAT?!

In Closing

Chewing gum has its benefits. So as long as you don’t chew like a cow. hewing can be a healthy activity for your oral heal and your cravings.

And with a couple of minutes, three ingredients and the amazing power of essential oils, you can make your own chewing gum that tastes good, improves the condition of your teeth and improves your mood. Sounds like a win!

Spearmint Essential Oil

Spearmint Oil Product Description

Commonly known for its flavor, spearmint is a perennial plant that offers a sweet and minty taste and aroma. For years, spearmint has thrived in the candy, gum, and dental product industries because of its favorable savor and breath-freshening properties. Spearmint essential oil also promotes fresh breath and is used frequently in cooking and baking to create salad dressings, drinks, desserts, and meat marinades. Aromatically, the cleansing and energizing aroma of Spearmint essential oil encourages a sense of focus while simultaneously uplifting mood. Spearmint oil can also promote digestion and help to reduce occasional stomach upset.* Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use on children and those with sensitive skin.

spearmint-eodoTERRA Spearmint essential oil is both pure and potent. Having a pure and potent oil is important because it determines how effective an essential oil is. When an essential oil contains contaminants or filler substances or when an essential oil plant is grown and harvested incorrectly, the essential oil is weakened and is less likely to produce quality results.
doTERRA ensures purity and potency of their essential oils with thorough and specific methods. To obtain maximum potency of essential oils, the plant of the essential oils must be grown and harvested in its optimal environment by skilled and knowledgeable farmers. For this reason, doTERRA employs native farmers from all over the globe to grow and harvest the essential oil plants correctly and in their optimal environments. This process produces potent essential oils that provide powerful benefits. To ensure pure oils, doTERRA puts each batch of essential oils through the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Protocol. This protocol consists of multiple tests that asses the purity of each oil. When oils are found pure, they are then readied to be sold. Through these methods and tests, doTERRA produces potent and pure oils, like Spearmint, that have incredible uses and benefits for all to use.
Spearmint Oil Uses and Benefits
  1. One of the strongest benefits of Spearmint oil is that it promotes digestion and helps reduce occasional stomach upset.* When experiencing periodic stomach discomfort or after eating a large meal, dilute one drop of Spearmint oil in 4 fl. oz of liquid and drink. Spearmint oil can also be taken internally by dropping the oil into a Veggie Capsule and ingesting.
  2. Feeling the blues? Try using some Spearmint oil to brighten up your day. Spearmint oil consists of chemical components such as carvone and limonene. These organic constituents have energizing and uplifting properties. Use Spearmint oil topically or aromatically to receive the mood uplifting benefits of these components.
  3. After reading or studying for long amounts of time, use Spearmint essential oil topically to help promote a sense of focus. Diffusing Spearmint oil will also help promote a sense of focus and will help uplift mood. For the best diffuser results, place three to four drops of Spearmint oil into the diffuser of your choice and enjoy the minty aroma as it elevates your mind and mood.
  4. Before leaving your house for the day, apply Spearmint essential oil to your toothbrush before you brush your teeth. Once you’ve bushed your teeth, you will be ready to take on the day with fresh breath and a hint of mint in your mouth. Spearmint oil is an ideal essential oil to incorporate in oral care routines due to its ability to freshen breath and cleanse the mouth.
  5. Please your taste buds and your stomach by adding Spearmint oil to your kitchen creations.  For a delicious, minty flavor, add one or two drops of Spearmint oil into any dessert, drink, salad, or entrée. When added to non-baked or non-cooked foods, Spearmint oil will not just serve as a flavoring, it will also aid in digestion.*
Fun Fact 
Because teas were not taxed by the English around the time of the American Revolution, mint teas became a popular drink in North America. Spearmint was even used as a prominent cash crop in Connecticut during this time.1  
Plant Description
The Spearmint plant, Mentha spicata, is an herbaceous perennial that is a member of the Lamiaceae plant family. This plant is characterized by its ovate to lanceolate dark green leaves, and its terminal spikes wherefrom grow tiny, lilac, pink, and white flowers. The leaves of this plant can be highly fragrant.2 
Chemistry of Spearmint Oil
Main Chemical Components: carvone, limonene, 1, 8-cineole, β-myrcene
The main chemical component of Spearmint is carvone. Carvone has a monoterpene backbone and is part of the ketone functional group. Carvone contains energizing properties that strongly contribute to Spearmint’s mood-uplifting abilities. According to a recently published study by Brazilian neuroscientists, the type of carvone ((R)-(-)-carvone) found in Spearmint demonstrated, in an experimental preclinical study, a statistically significant calming effect against a heightened state of excitement.3*  This contributes to the belief that Spearmint may support healthy nervous system function.* To learn more about Carvone or other chemical components found in doTERRA essential oils, visit the doTERRA Science Blog.
Oils that Blend Well with Spearmint Oil
Spearmint essential oil blends well with Lavender, Rosemary, Basil, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus essential oils for diffusion.
Cautions
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
