Milder mint for focus and concentration.
Spearmint is a perennial plant that grows 11–40 inches tall and flourishes in temperate climates. Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use on children and those with sensitive skin.
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.
In cooking, Spearmint is frequently used in salads, drinks, and desserts, though it can also be used in homemade salad dressings and as marinade for meats.
