Organic Spearmint

 (Menthe spicata)

Organic Spearmint is an herb with vibrant emerald-green leaves that are soft to touch and it produces spikes of tiny white flowers in the late summer. It is native to the Mediterranean and now cultivated all over the world.  Organic Spearmint essential oil is steam distilled  from the leaves and flowering tops. It is known as the "gentler" mint oil due to its lower level of menthol which makes it suitable for children. It has a warm, minty and sweet fragrance with sharp, fresh notes. It is sweeter than peppermint.
