Spearmint is one of at least thirty species in the extensive Lamiaceae, or mint, family. Spearmint is native to the Mediterranean and has been known as the "herb of hospitality" since ancient times. The Romans brought mint to Britain and in the symbolism of plants, Spearmint conveys wisdom. Common names for this aromatic herb include garden mint, lamb's mint, Our Lady's mint, spire mint, and Sage of Bethlehem.
This zesty herb has a long history of use as a culinary and medicinal herb. Spearmint is commonly known as the breath-freshening flavouring agent used in oral hygiene products. Believed to be the oldest of the mints, for centuries Spearmint has been used for its digestive benefits, often being served as a refreshing herbal tea with or after meals to prevent or relieve gas, bloating, nausea, and indigestion.
