Spearmint (Mentha spicata)
$2.50 – $8.00 excluding_tax
Still plenty cool but a little less overpowering than its cousin peppermint, spearmint is the thing for those mojitos, mint sauce and mint jelly.
Apart from its culinary talents this herb also has medicinal qualities including treating digestive complaints from Irritable Bowel Syndrome to indigestion. Its antifungal and antioxidant properties along with its cool refreshing taste have surely contributed to its popularity in mouthwashes and toothpastes. Some of its active constituents are limonene, cineol and of course menthol, though in lesser amounts than peppermint.
