An essential oil that first comes to my mind for use on St. Patrick's Day is Spearmint Essential Oil. Like its beautiful green leaves, spearmint is often is represented by the color green (i.e. in mints, gums and candies). It is a fresh, clean-smelling, energizing oil that is perfectly befitting the day and transition of seasons. It doesn't overpower as easily as Peppermint Essential Oil can.
Here in the northern hemisphere,, Spring will be officially arrive in a few not-soon-enough-to-get-here days. Although it is still too cool for my spearmint to once again begin to grow, my mint plants are typically the first to greet me as soon as the weather warms up enough.

Aromahead also suggests Sweet Basil, Palmarosa, Lime or Siberian Fir as green oils lovely for the day. View Aromahead Blog's Green Oils to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
