OVERVIEW:

Spearmint, also known as Silver Mint and Our Lady's Mint, is an aromatic herb in the mint family and is of uncertain origin. Its common name was derived by the tips of its leaves because they look like pointed spears. Although not as popular as peppermint and milder, the dried spearmint leaf is a common herb used for tea because it blends 

well with most other herbs. Its pleasant, fruity minty taste is used as a flavor in toothpaste, mouthwash, candies, and chewing gums. The dried leaf is commonly used in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. 

 

Spearmint leaves are high in beneficial antioxidant and nutrient 

compounds that give spearmint its cooling properties and recognizably minty scent. They may benefit your health in several ways including helping with digestive issues, balancing hormones, lowering blood sugar, reducing stress and improving memory. Spearmint may also have a stimulating effect on your nervous system.
