Spearmint is a perennial plant that grows 11–40 inches tall and
flourishes in temperate climates. It is widely used in gums, candies,
and dental products for its minty taste, and to promote fresh breath.
Spearmint has been used for centuries for its digestive benefits. Its
sweet, refreshing aroma is cleansing and uplifting, making it ideal to
evoke a sense of focus and positive mood. Spearmint is very different
from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use on children and those
with sensitive skin. In cooking, Spearmint is frequently used in salads,
drinks, and desserts, but it can also be used in homemade salad
dressings and to marinate meats.
