Today is our first Wellness Wednesday linkup! In addition to the linkup each week, I’ll be moving our series on essential oils to Wednesdays.
Last year at this time, I did a post on Warming Essential Oils for Winter. This year, I think I’ll talk about some of the essential oils that will help detoxify your home.
We’ll start with Spearmint, one of my all time favorite essential oils. I use Spearmint (Mentha spicata) for so many things. (you can buy it on Amazon here: Spearmint Essential Oil )
Spearmint is very similar to Peppermint, but its smell is much sweeter and lighter. This is mainly due to the fact that Spearmint essential oil has less menthols than Peppermint essential oil and smells lighter and more fresh.
Use Spearmint for:
- Insect repellant
- Gas/digestive problems
- Irregular periods/menstruation issues
- Respiratory troubles
One of my favorite ways to detoxify my home during flu season is to diffuse Spearmint and Basil essential oils in a diffuser.
- Simply place 2 drops of Spearmint essential oil and 3 drops of Basil essential oil in a diffuser along with the appropriate amount of water. This will keep your home smelling fresh and clean!
Now, on to the linkup!
