OraBliss Organic Ingredient Spotlight: Spearmint

At OraBliss, we understand the important roles that our hand-selected ingredients play in our all-natural CBD dental products. While we’ve explored the wonders of zinc and Aloe vera as crucial ingredients in our CBD toothpaste and mouthwash, there’s another ingredient that OraBliss dental care products couldn’t be without! 

Spearmint is widely utilized in most of today’s dental health toothpaste and mouthwashes for its antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Depending on your everyday self-care routine, spearmint may already play a major role in your overall health. 

However, fully understanding the health properties of spearmint can help you understand the importance of this ingredient in oral health care.  Continue reading to learn the multi-faceted benefits of this ingredient and why OraBliss favors spearmint as a secret weapon in our all-natural products. 

What is Spearmint? 

The Lamiaceae is a flowering plant family containing around 15-20 species of mint. Of this specific plant species, spearmint is among one of the many popular mints used as an ingredient and essential oil in a variety of foods, candy, chewing gum, and especially oral hygiene products. 

Of the many purposes and therapeutic health benefits spearmint offers, spearmint is an herb known for its rich vitamins and minerals while leaving a refreshing taste! Not only does this ingredient help to refreshingly clean and combat unwanted bacteria and plaque, but it is also full of rich vitamins and nutrients that can be crucial for building up periodontal health and strength. 

A study exploring the chemical composition of spearmint and its benefits as an essential oil found this herb to be an “excellent source of antioxidant activity.” Besides its popular uses in dental care, spearmint may help to alleviate digestive problems, relaxation of stomach muscles, reduce nausea, soothe sore throats and even cramps! 

What Are The Benefits of Spearmint in Dental Care? 

For many years, spearmint has been used as a prominent ingredient in different kinds of toothpaste and mouthwashes for its fresh, minty, taste and scent.  Over time, many dental health care specialists and patients have linked spearmint to fresh breath because of its invigorating and aromatic profile. 

Maintain Fresh Breath with Spearmint 

Considering its strong scent and taste, one reason spearmint is often incorporated into oral care products is because of the cooling sensation felt after each use. This refreshing and cooling effect of using spearmint in dental hygiene also helps to boost fresh breath. 

When incorporating spearmint essential oils or ingredients into your dental care routine, users feel a cooling and soothing sensation in their teeth and gums. This creates an overall refreshing effect and can mask or alleviate the signs of bad breath (or in worse cases, halitosis).  

Improving Bone & Gum Strength with the Vitamins & Minerals Found in Spearmint 

Other than its signature fresh sensation, spearmint holds many beneficial properties that can enhance and improve different aspects of your overall health. This natural herb is found to have a high trace of antioxidants. Specifically, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and even traces of riboflavin and folate (natural vitamin B9) are all found in this species of mint. 

The minerals and natural vitamins found in spearmint can be an important part of maintaining your oral bone density. To maintain good bone health, and specifically, the bone density of your teeth, these vitamins are necessary for helping to protect and strengthen your teeth, enamel, and gums.
