Sweetly minty, especially useful for emotional well-being.

Let's meet Spearmint!
7 ways to use Spearmint

 1) Diffuse the energizing scent and start your day off right.
2) A messy space encourages a messy mind. Add a few drops Spearmint to your Thieves Household cleaner and wipe down counters, tables, desks and more to
refresh not only your home, but your head space!
3) Have a commute or road trip? Add Spearmint to your car diffuser, or make a simple spray with water, a pinch of salt and 3 drops Spearmint in a bottle, fill with water and spritz
4) Enjoy an early morning shower by dropping 2-3 drops in a corner of your shower stall, or take a nice bath and enjoy an at home spa experience.
Spearmint is milder than Peppermint, so it’s a perfect massage oil. Try it on tired feet (or anywhere else you need it) with a dime-size amount of V-6™ per drop of Spearmint oil. Because its constituents are different from Peppermint’s, it doesn’t leave the same cooling sensation on the skin, but you’ll still get a whiff of minty freshness.
Try a stimulating scalp massage—add a drop each of Spearmint and Tea Tree to a few drops of hair oil and rub into your roots.
7) Use Lavender Mint Shampoo and Conditioner to enjoy Spearmint along with lock-loving oils like Lavender and Rosemary.

How to make DIY cocoa-mint massage bars 

Yield: 3-4 massage bars



1. Add beeswax and cocoa butter to a double boiler over medium-low heat until melted. Be careful not to overheat or melt too quickly. Low and slow is best.

2. Once beeswax and cocoa butter are melted, turn off the heat and add sweet almond oil and coconut oil.

3. Add cocoa powder and mix well until fully incorporated with no clumps.

4. Pour the mixture into a mold of your choosing. Let cool for 5 minutes.

5. Add essential oils: 5 drops Peppermint, 5 drops Spearmint, 3 drops Cinnamon Bark, and 3 drops Copaiba to each massage bar. Mix in with a toothpick.

YL tip: Wait until the cocoa butter and beeswax mixture is slightly cooled before adding the essential oils. This keeps the temperature more consistent, which helps the oils blend well and do their job.

6. Let everything cool completely in the fridge before popping the massage bars out of the mold.

7. Store in a sealed container at room temperature; keep away from extreme heat to prevent the bars from melting.

To use

Rub the textured side of the bar along your sore back, feet, legs, or any part of your body that needs a boost!
