Is Spearmint essential oil safe for dogs?
  • Animals such as dogs metabolize essential oils very differently than humans. And with a sense of smell 10,000 to 100,000 times more acute than humans, animals are more affected by essential oil diffusion than one might think. With that said, due to Spearmint essential oil’s many precautions toward dogs, we don’t recommend using this oil around your dog. If you’ve already used Spearmint essential oil around your dog and if you notice behavioral differences, such as whining, scratching or acting loopy, move your dog to fresh air and contact your veterinarian. If you wish to use Spearmint essential oil without affecting your dog, inhale it using an Essential Oil Inhaler and Mio Mist Diffuser or use it topically.

  • There are several ways to effectively use Spearmint essential oil and obtain its benefits, including 1.) Add 10 drops to your essential oil diffuser per 100 ml of water. 2.) Add 10 drops to an Essential Oil Inhaler and take it with you for on-the-go therapeutic use. 3.) Create a spray by combining 20 drops Spearmint and 1 tablespoon 190-proof grain alcohol in a glass spray bottle. After a few hours, add 3 tablespoons of distilled water. Spray onto surfaces and in the air to refresh your space.
Can you eat Spearmint essential oil?
  • Essential oils are powerful, concentrated substances so a little goes a long way. Two of the most effective ways to use them is by way of inhalation and topical use. Eating Spearmint essential oil is rarely necessary or recommended, no matter the brand. Essential oil ingestion can lead to adverse reactions such as medication contraindications, mucous membrane irritation, sensitization and nausea if done incorrectly. Therefore, if you wish to eat essential oils, we strongly recommend consulting with a knowledgeable professional with experience in internal use.

Luckily, a 2017 study on subjects with PCOS determined that Spearmint essential oil has the potential to allay PCOS by inhibiting testosterone and boosting follicular development. This cooling oil is also the perfect remedy when experiencing hot flashes.
