Product Description
SPEARMINTMentha spicata (Diosmos) - Mentha viridis (Menta) - Mint Family

HISTORY OF USE
These are forms of European Spearmint. They are native to the Mediterranean region and has a long history of use as a beverage tea. Spearmint is one of the most popular mints, as it is not as strong as peppermint.
The first recorded use of Mentha spicata dates as far back as 400 BC. A native species to the Mediterranean region, spearmint was collected throughout the Roman empire and valued for its pleasant aroma. In ancient times, spearmint was used to clear unpleasant odors, freshen breath, and protect food stores from rodents, but there is little indication that it was used medicinally at this time.
As the Roman empire grew, the spearmint was brought to Britain where its  medicinal properties became recognized. Its primary medicinal use was to treat indigestion, nausea and vomiting, as well as relieve the symptoms of respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and the common cold. Administered in the form of tea made from dried spearmint leaves, its mild nature made it popular for use in young children. In the middle ages, spearmint was also used as treatment if you were bitten by a wild dog. The fresh herb was mixed with salt and applied directly to the wound to promote healing.
Spearmint grows wild throughout North America thanks to British soldiers who transported it during the colonial era. Wrigley Inc. introduced a breath-freshening gum in 1893 which transformed spearmint into its most common use even today. However, despite spearmint’s breath-freshening properties, the medicinal benefits have not been overlooked.
