Spearmint has been used internally for centuries for its digestive benefits. Its sweet, refreshing aroma is uplifting, making it ideal to diffuse while working or studying. Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option to use topically 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.
